Love and Food

Did food have any place in your decision to marry? It did for me, and I'll follow up with stories, but tell me yours!

One of the things we loved about each other when we were dating was how much fun we had eating and enjoying food together so yes I would say yes food did have a place in our decision to marry.

As early as the 7th and 8th grade she made the best old fashion hamburges, and the best chocolate cake (from scratch) that I had ever tasted...Still does!!!!

When I met my hubby, we were both skinny divorced people. I loved to cook, but I didnt cook much since it was just me. When DH came on the scene, he was eating alot of microwaved hotdogs and frozen dinners (bleck!). So I'd invite him over and make wonderful meals. It felt like I came alive again during that period. And three years and many pounds later, we married. Our 4 year wedding anniversay is next week.

I think most of us here love to cook for our loved ones, its another way to show we care.

At parties, Kim and I always ended up in the kitchen fixing food, and that's where we fell in love.
We get by with a little help from our friends

After one meal at DH'S house, I knew I better get my nose in a book and learn more, plus, I needed to get his mom to show me how to make the "boy's" favorite things.I did and the first meal we had mommy over for, was a hit with dh..After mom left, he said that he thought I was the better cook, that she was good at the Italian things, but I new more things to make..We'd had scalloped potatoes,a ham with brown sugar rum glaze, green salad, biscuits and jam and peas and mushrooms...Dessert was cream puffs. I did it I did it

Well, she didn't cook at the time. And apparently, after asking her, she says it didn't play a role for her either. Except when I made something special like the time I made lobster and shrimp for her.
And here I thought I had been impressing her with my cooking skills.....

I love to eat and he loves to watch me eat, so possibly so.
He's always marveled at how much it pleases me.
Like on our road trips which are often, he'll say, "Honey look, there's a Cracker Barrel."

My dolls' mom is [or was] a wonderful cook and an incredible baker. We always said that she should have opened a bakery, as she had pride in baking perfectly. It was sort of tug of war for me though as I thought of myself as a good cook too. Maybe a competition thing of sorts. They say you marry your parent. She's lovely, loves to cook and he felt she was a good mother. He thought pretty much same of me and hoped some day we'd have children so I'd again follow her lead.

He watches me [and laughs often] watching me take a bite of whatever. Honestly, I think it's a relaxation thing and pleasures him somehow. He says he's the happiest stomach in the world.
He is first on my list of who I want to please most in the kitchen. And he's been in my kitchen since the 9th grade so there's somethin there...................
