Re: What would your spouse do for dinner?

I'm sure there would be mostly take out/fast food, maybe some frozen or boxed meals. We are fortunate though, in these types of situations our church family typically arranges for some meals to be brought in.

Re: What would your spouse do for dinner?

He's improved tons over the past year - finding recipes for himself and building up his skills.

Dishes he feels like he's got under his belt:
- spaghetti/pasta primavera
- fajitas
- stir fry
- omelettes

and, of course, his classics: pancakes, hot dogs and scrambled eggs.

Re: What would your spouse do for dinner?

My husband is a really good cook. He got to put his skills to the test recently while I was at the hospital with my brother for 6 days. They all survived. Kids did say they ate more taco salad than usual

My husband is an amazing cook, much better than I am. He can make just about anything, and it will taste wonderful! <3

Re: What would your spouse do for dinner?

DH can cook just fine. Would he? Maybe? He's more than capable of turning out a balanced meal but there's also a chance he'd say "Screw it. Lets eat Cheetos and hot dogs" and call it a day. His grasp of cooking is really good, nutrition...not so much.

Exactly.

My husband doesn't have any problems cooking (and is, in fact, far better than I am at some meals). But I suspect that if our child was in the hospital he would resort to convenience meals and I wouldn't have an issue with it. As long as everyone at home was being fed I would be happy.

My husband can cook an awe-inspiring meal OR watch children, not both. Oatmeal, PB&Js, fruits, veggies, grilled cheese, and soup would be staples, and then he'd throw random meals together - like quinoa-turkey burger-green bean stir fry or something.

Re: What would your spouse do for dinner?

I do almost all of the cooking around here but only because I am the SAHP. My husband actually makes really good pizza from scratch, better crust than I do! He can cook other things too, just about all basic food. He sucks at biscuits though. lol

Hot dogs and mac and cheese
Frozen ravioli
PB and Nutella

As long as the kids don't starve, I'm cool with whatever he does.
