Steph and I have a deal, she cooks, I do the dishes. Last night she fried up some free-range chicken, made some scratch mashed potatoes and gravy, along with some corn. There are sauce pans and a variety of other dishes and utensils under this pile as I re-discovered while putting them away this morning.
I do the dishes because I’m better at it than Steph, and I have no patience for cooking, so it works out well. Sometimes I wonder though if you give a cook the option to use every dish in the house without repercussions, will she do it?
