    hahahahhahahahaha!!! very productive way of not tempting yourself! lol

    I find im cooking things my family do like! my brothers are constantly asking me to cook their tea - allbeit sometimes just an omlette (i think they think im their slave now i have decided i want to cook constantly! lol) and i am always asking my bf what he wants cooking for tea etc.

    Like last night i made my bf a spicy tortilla lasagne. Smelt divine!

    And am always baking scrummy naughty foods lol

    So no, i cook things they like lol and the things i cook that they have never tried i hope they like! lol

    I'm also cooking things I love to eat but don't mind that I can't have any. I will make more when I have finished and watch my portions.

    I cook whatever they want. The food doesnt bother me and I know that the food isnt going anywhere, it will be there when Im finished dieting, it will be there when Im old and gray ( actually thats now hmm:rolleyes:) So, I cook just about anything.

    Hey Summergirl, I still adore cooking, like you. I get very disappointed if my OH tells me I don't have to do him a dinner!! Mind you, he sometimes get so involved in making music on his Mac, he sometimes forgets his dinner is on the table.......that's when I get the hump!!!:flamingmad:

    some great responces

    i love to cook and bake and my family eat anything i cook, but i'm mega picky so there's certain things i don't cook very often.......so i'm cooking those meals at the minute......won't be long before i have to cook something i love live lasagna or meat and potato pie yum yum,

    anyway i do agree the food will be there after i've finshed as well

    i'm so impressed at all you who have to cook for others. i genuinely believe if i had had to do that i would have failed on LT.

    However, 7 weeks in (WI 7 tomorrow, yay!) - and with absolutely no intention of cracking before I get to goal - and i'm about to start asking my friends if I can cook for them! i live on my own and before this I cooked from scratch all the time, so I really do miss it.

    Am going to stay with my mum for bank holiday weekend and I've already told her I'm taking over the catering, lol!

    I am with Elle-Emm I think I would definately of cracked if I cooked the same things as usual.

    When I started I went shopping with my OH to buy all the things that I hate that he loves so it would not tempt me like anything with peppers and mushrooms in. Plus its a bonus as he is learning how to cook now :D.

    Maybe I will get the bug for cooking again soon.
