I get to ask my wife what she wants for dinner, every morning. At the very least, I make her pick the protein(beef, chicken, or pork), and go from there. I have found many recipes that go for “I don’t know, I don’t care, and Something different.”
Since I retired, and my younger wife is still working, I cook most of the weekday meals. I did the the dusting and vacuuming while I was still working. I still dust, but iRobot is doing the vacuuming right now, while I check out the cartoons.
And the husband goes to get takeout.
