I thought your dh did most of the shopping and cooking?  Is he creative in his meals?

Nope, I shop, tell him what to make (weekdays only as I cook on weekends if we eat at home or dont get some type of take out) and then he will do his own things many times (examples, he will make his own marinades for meats).

That's great!  But I did chuckle at the whole grandma recipe thing, but then again I always do whenever I make a recipe from an Italian cookbook after the great lasagna debate where I was told that "real" Italian cooks don't use recipes.  Tongue Out

How controlling of you.

That's nice. My grandmother didnt use measurements with her recipes so we are still trying to get this one 100% lol. Close though :)

This must be new, maybe within the last year or so?  Because I'm pretty sure that you have said that your dh shops, cooks and creates most of the meals in a prior discussion.

My exact thoughts, given yesterday's discussion.

    Not a control thing at all. I could care less what he makes but I usually figure the food out according to what is going on that day.

    So why was it controlling when I plan and cook the meals in my house?  Why the double standard?

    Ummm...no, I think you are thinking of gesich. We have been doing almost the same thing for 20 + years with a few changes. I have always shopped and made up a list so you must be thinking of someone else.
