Ahh, the "what/where do we eat" run around
At home it's pretty easy, the default is pasta. But then you have to choose which pasta and which sauce. It's not too hard and we don't always consult the other about which pasta or sauce.
Carbonara takes more time so that's usually whenever I feel like it.
We just instituted the fact that each week one of us has to choose a recipe and we try it during the weekend - drove me bonker that I had to be the first one to come up with something when he's the one that wanted to institute the rule. grrrr.
(that's a spin off of our 'rule' that we have to decide what we do for the weekend in turn - I hate when it's my turn )
Once or twice he tried to have me choose which of the 20+ Japaneses restaurants we where going to, when he was the one who wanted Japanese. I quickly put my foot down on this.
- You wanted it, you choose -. Just like - You want to go out, you come up with something then.-
