I agree, Ruth.

We are to be complementary to each other, which is what I was trying to stress recently to my son's girlfriend (fiance). She did not seem to think her role in life was to help make his easier, and I was trying to show her from my own experience that there are no "designated" male or female tasks; but that each person in the relationship contributes to make it a workable whole.

I hope something got through; because he's been under a lot of stress trying to uphold his end.

Hubby does a lot of the cooking in our household; I've been relegated to the baking end, usually. However, if there are things that only I will eat; I usually will make those (understandably).

He, too, has been developing a knowledge and abandoning things he once saw as 'mainstays' in his menu. He even mentioned it recently. If we had a time capsule of what we used to eat, and what we eat now; it certainly would look vastly different. There are so few packaged foods in the household, now, whereas, when we were first married; that seemed to be all we relied on for our meals.

Yes Kay. It is really strange how the men we cook for - and add love in each stir of the food - and they love the food we cook for the will not listen to us until they read the information for themselves. Maybe that is why the Bible calls women "help-mates" to the men we love. ;-)

No kidding! The same thing is happening to me with my husband. I just recently got diagnosed with cancer and drastically changed my eating habits. I had been telling him things about food for years, now suddenly he's all over all the nutrients in vegetables etc. I love it, but it does make me smile.

I have always loved cooking from scratch and experimenting with seasonings. What my hubby comments on is that I insist on organic produce and the lack of meat in what I cook. Until HE read on the internet about eating organic and cutting down on meat for protein that is. I have to chuckle when he reads something that I have told him for years but discounted until he sees it in print.

My hubby says I'm turning into 'suzy homemaker' - making all my stuff, now.

I guess with reason - I know what goes into it.
