    I’d settle for meatloaf; he’s gotta watch his carbohydrate and starch count when comes to spaghetti (the “no white at night” gig).

    Mom made both good.

    No, no. The Meatloaf goes IN the Spaghetti!

    (It makes really tasty meatballs.)

    My husband tells me I’m a better cook than his mother.

    He’s right. :)

    My wife does cook better than my Mother. My Mother readily admitted that she ’couldn’t boil water withoutburning it’ when she got married. My wife on the other hand learned to cook before she was a teenager(with her older sister) as their Mother was a working Mother.

    that was my mom as well. in fact she had never seen water boiling when my parents got married. grandma never allowed anyone in the kitchen when she cooked.

    Every once in a while my father would say “boy, my mother could really cook this stuff good.”

    I know a guy who badgered and badgered his wife to make fried chicken for him, because it was his favorite meal. She finally did. I was a guest for dinner that night and it was really good. But he made the mistake of saying, “It’s good, but not as good as mom’s”. She never made it again and when he asked why she told him, “you want fried chicken go get your mother to make it”. I got my friends breading recipe but mine still never tastes as good as hers did that night.

    I always make meatloaf on one day, spaghetti with marinara the next day and spaghetti with meatloaf and marinara the third day. In fact today is turkey breast, I’m still thinking about tomorrow.

    LeoAutodidact: No it isn’t. My wife got some frozen meatballs and I could tell they were meatloaf. She could too after I showed her a chunk of uncrumbed crust in one. She is a good cook but has gotten lazy after 70. I don’t know how she learned – her mother did most of the cooking at home and her father was a professional cook, but she was from newlywed days. Just as insurance, I am quite competent too and it is generally one-third each, the other third is each for him/herself.

    In my case my late Grand mother made excellent chicken-N-rice. No one else since makes it the same way. Seems to be lost in our family.

    Luckily, my other half and I are both good cooks…although I’m the most adventurous.
