Not often - if DH feels like something he usually wants to cook it himself.

My husband will eat just about anything I prepare, but I wish he would come up with an idea now and then. Sometimes, I'm just at a loss. When he says "I don"t care" or some such thing I tell him I don't have a recipe for that.

I never ask hubby what he wants for dinner. Sometimes I will give my daughter a choice and cooks what she chooses.

Mostly I ask my son what he would like (only one more year of spoiling him). Last night I asked him to help me make stir fried rice, and explained that he could use any left over meat for the chicken, and more vegetables to make it more colorful. We had left over rice from the curry experiment to use up. I don't want him starving or buying junk to eat when he moves out and he loves his rice!

My son just moved out on his own over the summer. He's still getting used to paying bills and such. He's finding it expensive to eat from the
7-11 or ordering out! He called me last week and said "mom, how do I make your mac 'n' cheese?" He called several days later to get my recipe for chicken nuggets. Then he says can I send him some other recipes for him to try like my lasagne that he likes and my special grilled cheese. So I just typed up a bunch of recipes and emailed them to him. He had no interest in learning all that while he was home!
