    Every little helps:Laughing:

    I sometimes have a go, making good hearty stews when it is cold.

    Alan takes his turn also.

    Likewise, except I do all of the cooking, Jan does the washing and skivvy work .. have done since I met my first wife who couldn't boil an egg ..:Doh: It was learn or starve..

    I only cook fresh. Frozen, tinned, ready meals are an anathema to me ... I also enjoy trying out new recipes. Cooking brings out the creative side.. I don't see it as a chore. The joy of cooking a fresh meal and presenting it on the table is one of life's pleasures..


    At one time had plans to open a restaurant in Scotland .. but as Burns put .. the best laid plans of mice and men ..

    But little Mouse, you are not alone,
    In proving foresight may be vain:
    The best laid schemes of mice and men
    Go often awry,
    And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
    For promised joy!

    Every Little Helps Tesco's Profits (That's what the Ad Means).:Rofl1:

    The New Religion must be followed at all costs
    Every shop only worships the Prophet Margin.

    Sheila does the good stuff.

    I do and the fact i'm 5ft 9 tall and 16 plus stone in weight probably indicates I'm quite good at it.

    Me :BigGrin: and the Chinky - Ann decides what and I cook it :BigGrin: in fact I did the slow cooker full of a ham broth last night which when cool around dinner time I will carton up and freeze it :thumb: so then it will be a case of defrosting and warm up for about 10 tubs full over the next few weeks. 1 tub will feed 2 of us with some nicebread :Smile:
    Total cost about a fiver £2 ham hock £ 0.75 dried broth mix £2 fresh veg :Wink: cooking time around 15 / 18 hours :BigGrin:

    Nothing wrong with your cooking then
    but maybe you're just short for your height.

    If we cook I tend to cook in the week whilst my wife does homework duties and then we swap over at weekends.

    My daughter hates doing homework with me though as I do tend to expect a lot:Blush:

    Me ... I LOVE cooking, but like others (or was it only one other) on this thread, only using fresh ingredients ... with an occasional tin of baked beans and sausages which I have loved since I was very small !

    Only go to supermarkets for wine when we are "on the road" ... everything else comes from farm shops etc and I have a drawer in Badger full of spices and flavourings that I can use to invent dishes

    Happiness is messing about in a kitchen as far as I am concerned !

    We share it here when I'm on shift Lorraine's does it and when I'm off I tend to do most of it.

    Like treacle I used to have homework duties and Sophie hated me doing it, now she is 15 her homework is far to hard for me I'm sure we didn't do maths like that or have to spell big words when I went to school:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Shirley does all the cooking, though I can do it and did when the kids were at home as my ex wife wasn't much of a cook.
    Shirley will only let me cook if she is totally unable to do so for any reason.
    We do the washing up together in the van, at home we have a dishwasher.
