21 Things All Couples Who Are Slightly Obsessed With Cooking Will Get

So many Instagram pictures of food.

Posted on

1. Your Instagram feed is basically just pictures of meals you have cooked together.

And why shouldn't it be? You're proud of the things you've made.

And why shouldn't it be? You're proud of the things you've made.

2. And you spend all day at work messaging each other about what to have for dinner.

Then you make a plan for who has to go to the shops and who has to get home and start chopping.

3. You genuinely enjoy doing a big food shop together.

Walking around your local supermarket gives you so much recipe inspiration.

4. Although you've probably signed up to an organic vegetable delivery service.

They're the best because they force you to cook with new vegetables.

5. The best feeling in the world is when you wake up on a Saturday, and your S.O. has already started cooking.

6. But it's equally good when you wake up together, and realise that you've got enough time to make a fancy brunch.

Bonus points if you have all the ingredients in your house and don't have to go to the shop.

7. You'll often set aside a few hours at the weekend to try out a new recipe.

You'll drink as you cook, obviously.

8. And cooking a big roast is your favourite way to spend a Sunday.

With extra Yorkshire puddings ofc.

9. You love hosting dinner parties for your friends.

Especially if you have time to make pudding too.

10. But you also love just cooking for each other.

There's nothing nicer than spending an evening together eating good food and drinking cheap wine.

11. And you have your cooking routine nailed.

One of your stirs while the other chops, and then one of you lays the table while the other washes up.

12. When you're feeling lazy, you just bung a load of ingredients into a slow cooker in the morning and come home to a ready made dinner.

Coming home to the smell of your dinner ready to eat is the best.

13. But you're also not against ordering a Pappa John's and scoffing it in front of the telly.

Just because you like to cook doesn't mean you always cook.

14. You always buy each other cookbooks and kitchen gadgets for your birthdays and Christmas.

15. And you ask your parents for fancier things like ceramic knives and a food processor.

16. If it's a really special occasion, like an important anniversary or one of you just got a promotion, you'll try a new restaurant together.

And then spend the journey home working out how you can replicate what you just ate.

17. You've definitly gone through a joint ~phase~, like an infusing phase or a pickling phase.

And you'll learn that some things are worth the faff, whereas others are not. For example: making your own hummus = worth it; but making your own gnocchi = not really.

18. And you've at least tried to grow your own herbs before now.

But keeping herbs alive is actually really hard.

19. You love visiting food markets.

20. And you always pick self-catered homes whenever you go on holiday so you have an excuse to visit a foreign supermarket.

This is legit the best part of going away.

21. But best of all, you know that there's always an easy way to cheer each other up when you're feeling down.
