Alright…it’s confession time…I don’t generally like to cook!!! I know, I know, it is a BIG surprise…I am, afterall, a southern woman, and we southerners generally can cook….well, not me! Yeah, I CAN cook, but I don’t necessarily LIKE to cook…there is a big difference in that statement!
I am a firm believer in the “Let’s Order Out” philosophy…and I think it is because it just seems to be SO much easier to order, and eat dinner together at the table (we still eat together, I just don’t cook it), than it does to cook for 30 – 60 minutes.
Well…Wednesday morning I had a meeting with some really COOL chicks and we got on the topic of cooking and feeding your family, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I tried to convince them of the “Let’s order out” philosophy and they battled with me on the “You Make It to Show your Love” approach. Well…whatever they said worked, because I have cooked dinner for the last TWO nights. (TA DA!) Nothing major or super difficult…I work all day and get home after 5:30pm, so let’s not get crazy, but I cooked, and the kids noticed!!! It felt really good to be able to provide like that for the family, but I also have to tell you…there is something that can be said for throwing in the towel on hectic/crazy days and ordering out too!
What about you? Are you a let’s order out and enjoy the quality of our time together type of person, or are you of the I want to cook it, prepare it, and provide for my family type?
I think both have advantages, I am just curious as to what you do at your home. I have the timer on (like in cooking to see what cooks up with your answers) waiting for you…
