So true! My partner isn’t too bad but he can happily go until dinner time without food. I can’t, I need fuel but it irritates the hell out of me that he’ll happily eat what I make during the day but not reciprocate sometimes. But I feel bad if I only feed myself🙄

I also had two teens and an adult son home from the start of lockdown and decided early on I wasn’t going to be the house skivvy. So, I gave the kids a food budget and mostly let them sort themselves out for meals. It took a load off!
