Don't spend your holiday in the kitchen

We've heard it far too often, that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Enough to conjure images of a doting wife, a dining table groaning with festive delicacies and an admiring husband. But let's take a step back and remove those rose tinted glasses. The domestic goddess who conjures an eight-course meal and emerges from the kitchen looking like she's stepping out from the pages of a glossy exists only within those pages. And she probably did not cook Indian food. You will most likely be tired and possibly irritable. And hubby dear? After tucking into all that food he's going to want to take a very long nap, not gaze into your exhausted eyes, still smarting after hours of slaving over a hot stove. Be realistic about what you want to make, else order in and use your time more wisely.
