I have loved to cook my whole life, until recently. Now I have simply lost interest in cooking. I'm quite content to let my husband do the cooking or eat out. I actually feel sort of guilty about it.

I haven't lost interest in eating, though. Thing being, with diabetes and ulcers, my choices are limited.

Congratulations on 64 years of marriage!! I don't know many that can say they are still married after 64 years. Good for you! I have been married 25 years. Please tell us your secret to success.

I have a big kitchen with wonderful storage. My frustration is the positioning of the island. All i ever do is walk around the damn thing!

Mine is this board, there are so many brilliant recipes that I have to translate terms and weights from Americanised to English and metric,I mean you don't even drive on the correct side of the road. I thought Cilantro was Fidel's daughter and much to my frustration its Coriander , Pork Butt comes from the other end of the pigs and the only cup measure we have over here is for bra's

I understand your frustration. On this side of the Atlantic, 'mate' is a verb.

Ho Ho....if only my dear hubby would/could cook!.....he knows how to do eggs..... and, we do go out a couple of times per week to dinner. We have a restaurant right here in our condo bldg. and so, that makes it easy to just take the elevator down, to main floor and walk up a few steps to the restaurant.....LIFE is good!!!!!

Though we can argue about what side of the road to drive, I agree about metric, America is like the one of only two countries that is still using British standard. i thnk this was your way to pay back for lost war. America should ghave get rid off it at the same time it got rid off the king.
