    Just read a post by Gaby and she states that her DH can't cook healthy food...

    Karl also struggles to cook healthy food and i know that a work mate of mines hubby can't cook anything...

    Who's lucky enough to have a fella that can slap up a top notch meal...?

    Is there a way in which we can train our OH?!!!?

    My OH will cook if I ask him too, he can cook the standard bloke fare of spag bol and lasagna and Im I tired or feeling sick during pregnancies etc, he offers and Iwill just roughly show him what to cook and he will do it all. Pretty well trained really.

    DH swears he'll learn how to cook healthy :roll: Tbh i just wont let him cook, because he'll do something wrong :roll: Yeah, i have anxiety and can get kinda controlling sometimes. But I just cant see him being able to do the multitasking required. I stay in the kitchen most of the time i'm cooking, but he'd just leave it and go back to playing games, and prob ruin diner, lol. Plus I made a lasagne last night... Can any of you girls see a man under 40 cooking that? (ok, UNLESS they're a professional :lol:)

    I'm really lucky, my OH is a great cook and is pretty willing as long as I choose what to cook cos that's the bit he doesn't like :lol: In fact, when we first started seeing each other he was a better cook than me and encouraged me to cook. Though obviously now I am better than him :lol:

    My DH's idea of cooking is making toast!

    But I cannot really complain as he does 90% of the ironing in this house. He thinks it's relaxing LOL
