In my case , if I am too tired or just don't feel like cooking and I have to cook , then it is a chore.

Like Andy M. suggested, I think you need to get away from the whole concept of "chores" and consider each task as something that needs to be done in order to maintain your household. In my generation, there were/are few men who would assume the role of household cook, or even consider that they are 50% responsible for running the household. And, as much as I enjoy cooking, there are nights when I just plain run out of ideas and motivation - not to mention the cleanup. Yuk. I think you are doing just fine, and have nothing to apologize for. She should be grateful you enjoy cooking - means better eats for everybody!

Saludos, Karen
