  • I would rather cook it myself, those places use the micro wave to much. Also they use to much garlic I hate garlic (bad breath for 3 days is not for me). To much fat to be healthy. I am very persnickety. Good Question there Mr. Ice. Nov. 16

      Please, no need to be so formal ..just call me Ice. (if we ever get a private message system - I'll tell you my real name). I am a cook (among other things) and I rarely use my Micro Wave for anything but thawing (that can be disastrous as well). I do like garlic but it should be used in moderation, as you said - a breath problem. It's rare that I dine out, but when I do it's a treat and I generally know the person cooking my supper.
  • Yes, I like to cook, in fact it is part of my job. I work in a cafe.

      I've always said that to be good at it .. you have to first like doing it. So I have no doubt that you're a good cook. In the winter (when I'm not truckin') I volunteer my time as cook at my local veteran's club. I know 1st hand what it is to stand over a hot grill. Generally 2 months before I quit the road, the gang starts asking when I'll be back in the kitchen, because they can't wait.
  • When I was younger I liked to cook and to bake - I still cook every day but the fun is gone... the work in the kitchen is tiring, more than I like. We avoid dining in restaurants because I have no control over the ingredients of our dinner - secondly- we have no money for it......

      I hear you load and clear, you need a helper. The prep work can be a mountain of work and I agree about dining out, although when I do dine out I generally know the people doing the cooking and I'm always welcome in the kitchen to say hello or to give them a hand. When I show up with my own apron under my arm they know I mean business. Cooking for myself is not fun for me either, but I do still love cooking for a crowd. The folks at my local Veterans Club like my cooking and that's reward enough for me. : )

      Why did I not marry a cook ??????????????
    • Ice man
      I'm pretty sure "D" can be handy & make you a mean grilled cheese. LOL
  • I was asked this a while back and I had to think about it and it occurred to me that I never really thought about whether or not I liked it I just assumed it was my job so I did it. I would rather cook than dine out.
    • Ice man
      Then you must like doing it ... cooking, that is ... in the kitchen ... Doh! that still doesn't sound right. lol
    • Linda Joy
      I think maybe you just want me to like doing it. In the kitchen lol Truth is I'm too cheap to dine out it's expensive and I really don't have much money to work with. Okay, I admit there's also the fact that I like things done exactly the way I want them done and it's unfair to ask a restaurant to do that for me, besides they probably wouldn't get it right.
    • Ice man
      I understand your position and usually cook myself too. Oh Jeezuz, that didn't come out right either.. lol
    • Linda Joy
      And here I thought you were in a committed relationship! Lol. Maybe I don't completely understand your position! ; ) lol
    • Linda Joy
      I've worked in restaurants all my life I've probably fed millions of people.
  • 9-27-2017 Yes. Raw veggies are hard to take.

  • I like to cook ! I am bored of dining out
    • Ice man
      Dining out gets expensive after a while too.
    • Abha
      Yeah, really.
    • Abha
      And sometimes you don't even like the food, because it's not like what you are used to....
  • Kidding?
    • Ice man
      No, the question was straight forward. Some people (like myself) like to cook and some people don't.
    • Vittorio 'Sam' Manunta-Lowell
      You answered your point!
    • Ice man
      Yes, but you didn't answer the question ...as to whether you prefer to cook or dine out.
