Grateful for Cooking Break

Processed with RookieCooking is not something I enjoy doing – especially when I am tired after a day of working with children. Often I force myself to enter the kitchen to begin preparing vegetables because I know that a homecooked meal is good for my family. I try to think of different foods to cook but often my mind remains blank. I cook for three other people besides myself and, as a result, I need to try and please all palates.

This week, however, I have been given a break. My husband has not been feeling well and is therefore working from home. As he does not have to spend time travelling, he has decided to gift me with his cooking. I am loving it! When I get home, I am able to relax and not think about what is in the fridge. Instead I am able to put my feet up and even read a little. Bliss!

This week I am grateful for the change in my evening routine. I am grateful for the break from cooking, and for the tastes that my husband is creating in the kitchen.

What have you been grateful for this week?

  1. That sounds wonderful. 🙂 I love to cook, but it is such a luxury to have someone else do it every now and then so I am always grateful when my husband decides to take over in the kitchen (as he did last weekend).


    1. It feels like a holiday, doesn’t it? After breaks like this I always feel energized to try a new recipe – or make something I haven’t in a while 🙂


  2. And then next week you’ll be grateful that your husband is feeling well again! (but miss his cooking 🙂 ) Funny how things happen sometimes , Colline. I’ve never been a natural cook but it’s a necessity in our house as my husband doesn’t. It’s been wet and miserable here all day and I haven’t been out, but have the makings of our evening meal in the fridge. I’d just reached over to look at a hearty bean soup recipe pulled from a magazine the other day when I clicked onto your post. 🙂 Enjoy your supper!

  3. My husband has gone to be with the Lord now, but when he was alive, he loved to cook. And he was very good at it. I enjoyed cooking and was a good cook myself (although I don’t cook much these days just for myself), but he taught me how to cook a couple of dishes that I wasn’t good at before we were married. He especially liked to roast our turkeys and cook leg of lamb and roasts. And he always basted all meats done in the oven with Pepsi.

    1. I agree. For me cooking is more enjoyable when I am on a break from work. I go back to recipes I enjoy but that take a long time to make. I browse through cookbooks and shop for ingredients. And I don’t dream of relaxing while standing in the kitchen.
