    Tom wouldn't know how to cook a noodle to save his life. Before we met, he would eat out for every single meal. He still likes to ... but I LOVE to cook, so I have to BEG him to let me keep him home for dinner at least once a week. Otherwise, we will usually eat out ... but I make sure he pays. lol...

    So, I make food and bring it in to the office for everyone a lot instead. Helps with job security too that all the managers love my cooking!!!

      i despise cooking...but i do it...i'm not creative enough, and have a tendency to cook the same few thing over and over...keith likes to cook, so if he's home early enough (quite rare), he'll cook...he despises cleaning, and i don't mind it, so it works out well. we do, however, eat out 2-3x/week...we don't believe in cooking on the weekends

      (i bumped this b/c he's currently in the kitchen, complaining about the 3 dishes in the sink that he has to wash, and whining about how gross the kitchen is - there's mail on the counter.. - and every time his ADD kicks in, he leaves the water running and goes upstairs for something...)

          I do all the cooking through the week for me and the kids, Everton works late. Everton usually comes home and cooks up his Jamaican food, he makes a mean jerk, I don't cook Jamaican. On the weekends E cooks,we usually barbq, but if company comes we both cook we make a good team. I usually clean up, Everton is the messiest cook, it drives me batty, I clean as I go he doesn't. When he is done he usually has used every pot, pan, frypan, and bowl.

          I have to admit I hate day to day cooking, it is so boring, but I love throwing dinner parties and cooking for my friends.

            When Brendan cooks, I swear he does the same thing. I think he uses every spoon in the house. Drives me NUTS!!!!

              I'd have to say I'm a lot like Tammy and Tami. I cook, Mike usually does the dishes. I love how he tells random people that I'm a great cook. I think that's such a nice compliment.
              BUT, anyone else have this problem...his mom tries to "one up" me! She'll have a gathering at their house and I'll offer to bring a dish...she'll say she's got it covered. Then she'll totally go overboard with the food. Funny thing is Mike said she hardly ever cooked for them growing up and if she did it wasn't all that good (like she wouldn't season the meat for tacos, etc). Apparently she got better! She's a sweet lady though and I love her to pieces. :)

                Jay and I switch off with cooking duties. He is a really good cook. I love to cook too. We tend to enjoy a lot of Mexican inspired stuff and try cook light and low fat foods.

                  I HAAAATE cooking. And usually I can get enough sympathy that Brian will cook, but we also do a lot of takeout and frozen dinners (how horrible!!). He loves when I cook though, because I am a good cook (tooting own horn), I just hate to do it.

                  Our poor children are going to be eating at their friend's houses a lot!!

                  kash, i really hate to clean also...i dont know why...i like to vacuum and do the laundry but not clean. i think i have an aversion to sponges because no matter how often you change them, they smell funny.

                  luckily, steve'es nickname from his friends is "sanitary steve" so i let him clean...and our housecleaner do the yucky stuff like showers, toilets, floors....

                    I usually do all the cooking, but when I come home real tired or not feeling well, he cooks for me. But if I cook..he has to clean :)
