Would you rather be the "cook", or would you rather be the "clean up guy".

    I am one of those guys that can eat the same thing day in and day out when I am by myself. If I was having a guy over for a date, I can make about 10 good meals. But I don't love to cook. I would rather eat a great meal prepared by someone else who really enjoys cooking. I would do the clean up.

    BUT.....
    I like efficient guys who cook and kind of tidy up as they go along...you know what I mean? Much better than the guys who make a complete sloppy messes in the kitchen.

    What about you?

    Cook or clean up?

    Clean

    When I'm left on my own, I revert to bad eating habits.

    Cook. Nothing beats creating something new and seeing the man you love enjoy it. My boyfriend said few things show him how much I love him as when he comes home to a good meal made by me. I also clean as I go along and after. The kitchen is my domain.

    Baldone and saguaroman you both sound so dreamy.
    I am the guy that loves to have someone to cook for me...I am so easy I eat everything and am so appreciative. Plus you both clean up as you go along!

    muchmorethanmuscle saidSpeaking of salads I just made myself a big bucket of salad.

    Spinach leaves, freshly sliced apples, fresh red onion, some dried cranberries, a splash of feta cheese and some low fat ranch dressing. It was delicious!
    yum!

    muchmorethanmuscle saidLOL....awh..that's so cute. I can see you munching on them. What's your favorite color/flavor? icon_smile.gif


    I especially like the red and orange ones but have perpetual disdain for the yellow. I think it must be a cheap color to make because the bags are always littered with yellow.

    I know my way around the kitchen. I'm decent with a spice rack and a gas stove. On the other hand, I hate messing with soap and water. I most certainly can't be the clean-up guy.

    COOK, COOK, COOK!

    Neither. I like quick clean meals. The quicker it is to finish eating, the better. Hence why I like sandwiches, cookies, pizza, etc.

    I prefer cooking, but I clean as I go. To many years working in kitchens, I have built a habit of leaving the kitchen clean when the meal is served. Only the table dishes to clean. But I love having help in the kitchenicon_razz.gif

    I've always done both at the same time... it's a question of efficiency.

    I hate to cook and I can't cook. Not that I like to clean up, either, but my partner does love to cook. So I set the table (stunningly, I might note), and clean up afterwards, with equal style & flair. Actually we have an excellent new dishwasher, so it's hardly a lengthy or yucky job, thank gawd.

    I love to cook. Besides, my bf doesn't cook, so he cleans up. icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm the prep chef. I cook Sunday through Thursday. Do all the slicing, dicing, marinading and sauteeing. B/F is the grill master....then we both clean up.
