NO married man should be eating microwaved meals. I think it’s fair for a woman to provide 6mths of approved meals containing 2 meats and 3 rotating sides. Feeding your husband has been touted as being backwards and archaic but I think it’s great to at least perfect a few meals that your husband loves. Not only will be it great for your budget, eating out costs more, it might be better for your waistline too. I love to eat but I’m not fond of cooking but I’ve tried to make it a habit to cook at least twice a week so I don’t lose my skills. I’ve perfected pasta, vegetarian dishes, Korean, West Indian and Thai food just by searching for recipes and stalking IG pages. With a bit of dedication and practice it’s not hard to add chef to your pre-marital resume.P
