Suzan.....my dh can cook..simple things.....hamburgers..hot dogs....make tuna...he cooks breakfast every Saturday & Sunday mornings.

But, actually, he would rather go out & get some fast food...pizza, chinese...Mc D's..or a sub !!!!!...But to cook a BIG "normal" meal...that would never happen !! lol But , if push came to shove..he could/would do it under my supervision. When I had the rotator cuff surgery.....he did cook alot....w/me telling him what to do ! lol

HI Bunny, good to see I am not alone in the "no sandwiches for dinner" concept.

OMG....Donna..if I EVER even mentioned to my DH to have a sandwich for dinner...he would be HIGHLY insulted.. I guess I have spoiled him, by cooking a big meal every nite..(except Saturday nite) that is date night !! lol !!!

My husband likes sandwiches anytime. He likes anything I fix for dinner, never complains, always says thank you. Maybe he just doesn't want the wrath of Donna coming down upon him!! LOL!!! Or, he doesn't want to have to fix his own dinners!! You have to remember, though, that this is a remarriage. I trained him even before we got married!! By our ages, we knew what we would and would not tolerate and food and cooking was one of mine!! Of course he would eat out every meal every day of the world if I let him!! Not kidding!! He chooses all the bad for you menu choices, though, and I'm trying to keep the man healthy, so I cook...most nights...and when I don't feel like cooking, he'll gladly eat anything. Whew, am I ever lucky...or maybe it's him that's lucky...lol!!

Hi Donna, well last night she refused all the new food , so I tried the old food and she liked that, she also ate fairly well this morning (the old food again). Is she just being a diva? Making her own food: I had thought of that, but that is not as simple as it seems, as there are 2 households , one of which I have no control over. ;O) anyway, we'll see what happens . Thanks for all your input!

My dh is not big on sandwiches for dinner. I'm sick to death of cooking the same thing over and over so new recipes it is. I'm starting with lasagne rolls this week. Also will try new England clam chowder.

I would think that too about her missing her parents, but she's been having this eating thingy now for months. lat night she ate fine again but this morning 2 bites. Will have to take her to the vet I guess, thinking I better wait until dh gets back though incase they want to run tests, I don't want to make that decision.

I KWYM about cooking,but for some reason I just don't feel like cooking. I need to find some easy but different recipes I think,, in the new year, I'll try to concentrate on that.

If she checks out well at the vet and nothing is wrong with her, you may have to make your own food for her. There are human foods that are good for dogs and even better than dry or canned dog foods. I had a Siberian Huskey years ago that I had to do that for. Saber had a sensitive stomach and digestive system. I fed her according to the vet's suggestions and it worked well. My DD2 has a dog with sensitive digestion, too, and also has to make his foods. There is information about it online.

Tonight I "cooked", as in boiled eggs, a tuna-egg salad and made us sandwiches. That was as close as I could get to cooking so far..lol!! Husband is already talking about going out for breakfast tomorrow. I told him Tuesday night I weigh in and Wednesday it begins...oh, how I am dreading getting back on track!! It's gonna be a rough go of it for awhile!! I hope your new recipes work well for you. I can't even think about such things!!

Sea bass for dinner sounds good!! We went out to eat for lunch and then had left overs for dinner tonight. I told J I'll try to remember how to cook again next week sometime..lol!! We've eaten out almost every day for the past two weeks!!

Pat may be right in that Diva is not eating for missing the people that she owns! Shelby always loses weight when we leave her too. Dependant little furbabes!

Glad your kids are fine and enjoying their time in Ankara.

You'll be getting up soon in the New Year! Enjoy your first day!

Hope you had a wonderful New year celebration ! the sea bass sounds YUM...hope it came out that way!

Diva just might be playing Diva & not eating because she is sad & misses her mommy & daddy.I'd worry if she was refusing all food & getting sick.

Not much going on here. Wayne is at work & I am home...alone & bored. I'm not one to go out by myself.

Sunday is church & work.
