I cook mostly during the week, since till my GF moves in this fall she is usually here on weekends only. Don't think I am a bad cook(though my girl should be a chef she is that good), but other than something like my meatloaf dinners, which for some reason I've gotten obsessed with perfecting(especially as its one of the few things my GF thinks I am actually pretty good at cooking ), I have the get er done and et approach.
Meanwhile, when she makes say, pasta or her amazing chili recipes, its an all day affair. And she NEVER uses jarred pasta sauce. She always makes it from scratch. The look she gives me when I reach for my Ragu jars is priceless.
