lol texastamale.

i get tired of asking what dw wants me to make, or if she's planned to make something for dinner, or if she wants me to get take out. so after the first "i don't know", i begin to list the things i can make, or the ethnicity of the restaurant for take out. if i play my cards right, i can influence her into deciding what i want by listing things she doesn't like that i make, or what she complained about from the various restaurants previous times. it takes a while, then i finally get to eat.
like a hamster on the treadmill of life...

In addition to the freezer above the fridge, we have a standup freezer in the basement. I tend to forget all the stuff I have in there. As a result, we weren't taking advantage of the variety available to us.

At the beginning of each week, I make a list of the meals available to us in the freezer or from other stuuf we have on hand. The list is usually 8-12 items long so there is some selection to be done.

S.O. will read the list over and pick a few meals. More often than not, in the order I've listed them.

Sometimes I'll list an item like chicken (or whatever) surprise. This means I'm going to experiment and she's going to eat it. Yesterday was chicken surprise day and I made a spicy Mexican chicken dish that turned out to be a keeper. Sometimes I get lucky!

This is how after 26 years of Marriage, it goes down at my house:

Me: Do you want dinner?
My SPOUSE: Sure, what are my choices?
Me: Yes and no.

My mom had a cute plaque in her kitchen that said,

Take it
or Leave it"
