What Husbands want for Dinner....

Jane had a system for labeling homemade freezer meals. She would carefully note in large clear letters, "Meatloaf" or "Pot Roast" or "Steak and Vegetables" or "Chicken and Dumplings" or "Beef Pot Pie."

Everyday when she asked her husband what he wanted for dinner, he never asked for any of those meals. She decided to stock the freezer with his various requests, What he really likes.

In Jane's freezer you'll see a whole new set of labels.... You'll find dinners with neat little tags that say: "Whatever," "Anything," "I Don't Know," "I Don't Care," "Something Good," or "Food."

No more frustration for Jane because no matter what her husband replies when she asks him what he wants for dinner, it's there waiting......

tee-hee, my babe uttered those sort of responses several times before he learned to just hush up and answer in a straightforward manner.

first time he said, 'i don't care,' like 4 times in row i said, 'okay!', grabbed my keys and said, 'we're going for sushi.'
he hates sushi.
he protested, so i dug through my Brothers cabinets of food and tossed him a can of spaghettios, grabbed my purse and dug out a spare set of keys and and tossed them to him, then said something like, 'here, enjoy, i'll see you later! don't change my channel cause i'm cause taping something!' and yelled, 'lock the door behind you!' on my way out the door.
VRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i ended up getting a nice ribeye instead and fed the cats the leftovers right in front of him.
....**** hath no fury like that of a woman scorned....

I think I might have to try that. I do get tired of the "I don't care." response after a while.

I get asked for "I don't know" quite often.

Have you ever made a pot of "just something quick"? Or perhaps a steamed "doesn't matter to me"?

My least favorite to make is "Nothing Sounds Good to Me"

The hardest part of cooking for me is deciding what to cook.

If I ask Paul what he wants it's because I'm out of ideas... so " I don't care" doesn't cut it.
