Foodie Wednesday: Ideal Marriage

I had never learned how to cook when I was young. I have an older sister who does all the cooking in the house. And sometimes even my younger sister would also cook. I am not the type of person who would stay in the kitchen.

Hubby knows that when we got married, and in the beginning, since there's just the 2 of us, we just eat out a lot. When my son was born, I made sure that the nanny that I hire knows how to cook. That's 2 of her chores, baby and cooking. I have a maid who comes in once a week to clean the house and do the laundry.

It became a challenge when we decided to move to Canada. We can no longer afford to buy cook food and with 2 toddlers, I can't feed them with canned goods. So I started cooking. Not once did hubby complain about my cooking... even if its way too salty or spicy for me. He put up with all my bad cooking and not say a word. My kids, what do they know, right? That encourages me to cook.

Even when I made the mistake of mixing 2 leftovers - the Sinilaga - my family still ate it with no complains. But I threw it all out since I couldn't make them eat it all.

They say that the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. I disagree! Hubby loves to eat, his whole family loves to eat, and yet, that didn't stop him from marrying me.

This is my first entry to Wifespeaks' Foodie Wednesday: Ideal Marriage edition.

how hubby (and the rest of your family) ay so sweet!

ako naman, in a way i'm lucky that my husband is a great cook so hindi naman kami nagutom nung hindi pa ako marunong magluto. :D pero syempre, noong ako na ang nagluluto, heto na po ang critiko, haha! ang hirap pag magaling yung nilulutuan mo, laging may extra comment. pero syempre, constructive naman :D

thanks for joining WS! :D

Hi Meeya,
I wish my hubby will cook for me too. But if I left him in the kitchen, we will all be eating corn beef with fried eggs and instant noodles.
