Why I Cook For My Husband Nearly Every Day

Why I Cook For My Husband Nearly Every Day | What Joy Is Mine

Growing up my mother always made sure my father had a home cooked meal at the end of his work day. I can’t remember too many evenings she didn’t have something prepared. My father always appreciated this effort of my mother. He knew he could count on something delish, warm and ready when he walked in the door.

In my own marriage, I have followed my mother’s example. Honestly, I truly love having a meal ready for my husband at the end of his work day. It makes me smile when he walks in and says, “You can smell that [whatever I’m cooking] before you walk in the house. Mmmm….what is it?” That encourages my heart and reminds me how important it is to him.

So, is it true that the way to man’s heart is through his stomach? I say there is more truth to that statement than not.

Having a meal prepared for our husbands at the end of the day demonstrates servant’s heart. We are called “through love to serve one another.” (Galatians 5:13) Serving our husbands in this way is a blessing to them. We make them feel important and worthy. “She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.” (Proverbs 31:12)

Another positive thing about having a meal ready for our husbands at the end of the day is we express thankfulness. We are telling them how much we appreciate that they work hard to provide for their family. It would seem a simple meal wouldn’t mean much but it does. We send the message that their work is not in vain and that we are grateful for their daily diligence. “In all toil there is profit.(Proverbs 14:23)

Lastly, this is an act of love! It is another wonderful way to tell our husbands we love them. “Above all, keep loving one another earnestly.” (1 Peter 4:8) Another word for earnestly is purposefully. To me, it is a great way to purposely spoil my husband and communicate I care about his well being. Plus, I know he feels loved knowing I would greet him with a home cooked meal after a long work day.

Here are three ideas to bring about this awesome way to love our husbands:

1. If you love to cook, then cook! Prepare favorite meals along with trying new meals here and there. Don’t forget to make note of the meals your husband enjoys the most.

2. If cooking is not your thing, then take time to learn or at least find recipes that don’t require much ingredients and are easy to whip up. There are so many easy peasy delicious recipes online and on Pinterest that can be done in 30 minutes or less. Keep it simple as you learn to cook better.

3. Plan a menu and stick with it as best you can. This is just a great idea period. I plan our menu weekly and shop accordingly so that each evening I know what will be prepared. This saves me the stress of trying to come up with something last minute.

Cooking for our husbands is a reflection of our heart for them. It isn’t about a gourmet meal but about having something prepared…even if its something as simple as sandwiches or something more elaborate like roast. (Check out my easy roast recipe.) So, what will you whip up for your husband this evening?

(PS. I say nearly in my post title because sometimes he treats me to dinner out. I am truly blessed.)
