M and I have a deal. I plan the weeknight dinners and he cooks them. On Sunday night I make a list of dinner options for the week based on what's in the pantry and freezer. M then chooses what to make each day, using the list for inspiration. See, he HATES planning dinners. He hates trying to figure out what to make. I don't mind at all. I make sure that we have the food in the house by doing the grocery shopping and then he cooks the meals Mon-Thurs. I cook Fri-Sun. Not bad.

Here's the menu options for this week:
  • Polska kilbasa with onions and green peppers, green beans
  • Pork roast, asparagus, crescent rolls
  • Spaghetti and meatball caserole (left overs) and salad
  • Chicken Parmesan (chicken in freezer), green beans
  • Breakfast for dinner (eggs, sausage, toast)

Seems like a good system to me. Plus you probably save money by you doing the shopping. That's pretty much the way life should be while building a good relationship. You figure out what works for you as a couple with respect for each others' gifts and talents, which may not work for everybody. What matters is that it works for the two of you. Way to go, and a great idea.

Sounds really good to me! Planning is really the way to a smooth, organized and happy life.I agree with your mom, if you do the shopping, money is saved. I know it works that way with us.
