Sorry, I just read to rant.
I do most of the cooking at home & 1 of the reasons is that my H is soooooo slow at cooking. He also puts our daughter to bed everynight as otherwise all she wants is more milk from me. So last night he went upstairs with her at 8.30 & she wasn't in bed until 9.15 which I consider late for a 14 month old. But I mentioned this to him & he seems to think that the later she goes to bed the later she'll wake up - which hasn't been true so far. Tonight he started cooking chilli just before 7, I just went in to see him & he's only just put the rice on. Now I'm no cook & have no idea how long it takes to cook chilli but surely this is ridiculous.
Sorry, his time keeping always drives me crazy & I feel like I'm the only parent, as left to him who knows what time she'd go to bed.
thanks for letting me rant

If I was doing chilli from fresh, I'd give it an hour start to finish. If it was a fry the mince and add a packet job then much quicker I imagine. Hope you get fed soon!

Not fresh, mince & jar & beans oh & rice which is obviously the trickiest bit. It's the fact that Isobelle was too tired to eat too much. Feel like I have to parent him sometimes!

I sympathise, when I cook I usually manage to empty dishwasher while things are cooking on the hob, tidy up after myself etc... H somehow only manages to get the food cooked.
He also took half an hour to get our bags down from our flat and into the car the other day... How?!

Well in that case I can see your frustration!

My H always seems to take twice as long as me to do anything too

A husband who cooks?! I'd just settle for that regardless!

I wouldnt have an issue with the length of time between cooking necessarily but I do.find it quite late for a LO to be eating? Perhaps thats just because O is always in bed around 7ish though x
