I do understand the ordeal of doing kitchen routines daily and from my side I almost help fifty percent to help my wife as the children and myself would be leaving early for the college, offices. Since I wake up at 4 am and do get ready for cooking spade works by 6 am so that she gets into final touchings by 6.40 am so that the children get ready in time. We are not giving any holiday for the kitchen works and during festivities and other occasions would be full of work and she needs huge help. Though the relatives come and enjoy the dishes prepared by her, no one would turn to the kitchen or look at the sync which might have gathered too much utensils for cleaning. We do not have the services of the maid servant and hence the kitchen works has to be done on own. I feel concerned for her often and reach out to help.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Frankly writing. I don't enter the kitchen unnecessarily and disturb my wife. If I enter, she would say, 'Stay Out'. This is my area. Yes. She is purely a housewife, a homemaker and an excellent chef, and a wonderful lady as you said..

Many men indeed take them for granted and just order but time is changing and even they are learning to help them in the house chore and a little in the kitchen. It will take time but yes changes are seen everywhere. We have many world-class men chefs working in international levels but for a house, it is the women who overpower. My brother-in-law makes finger licking non-veg items, my nephew-in-law (niece's husband) makes biryani, etc so things are changing and we will see the change in the society.

These days my sons are spending their time in the Kitchen on Sundays and cooking some special items and they are not allowing ladies into the kitchen for that half-day. I hope many people may be doing this to keep their ladies happy. We all should make her feel happy so that we will also be happy.
Yes, I know cooking to some extent ad on many occasions I had helped my wife in the kitchen not only in cooking but dishwashing, cleaning etc. There used to be occasions when I took these tasks alone also. In our house whenever and wherever it is needed I also share the work. But still it is to be admitted that we would like to be pampered. So once in a while I also make tea or coffee and take to my wife
On regular days and for regular meals, I prepare them myself only. Some times he helps me in chopping and other little work when he is free from his work.
