I have been married for almost 4 month now and it is going fine 🙂
The biggest issue we always had is figuring out what we’re going to have for dinner or lunch today??!? Not that we’are starving and struggling to put food on a table, but we usually don’t eat out and don’t order delivery from pizzerias or sushi bars because my wife is often unhappy about the quality/taste of these foods. Therefore we cook. And after everything is gone, you have to cook something again. That is a challenge.
This horor always looks like this: you wake up in a morning, you do all the needed stuff, eat pretty standard yogurt or something like this and then she asks about the dinner. And this question arises exactly at the time when
whole variaty of dishes you have cooked last 4 months is not at the top of your mind. You’re thinking about how you’re going to rock today, you’re full and you can’t come up with more than 2-3 dishes you had recently. But you don’t want having the same menu again! The problem gets harder because you also need to match it with ingredients in the fridge.
So we developed a solution: we now log all dishes we have ever cooked in a spreadsheet 🙂 I made a special file in Google Documents and I have it available on a smartphone, iPad or laptop wherever I am. Now we can quickly go thru the list and decide. And if nothing works we improvise and add this to the list. So now, I never stumble upon this akward question when I am half awaken.
What issues did you have in your family and how have you solve them?
