Hi Chowhounds,

I just moved in with my boyfriend (last week). I want to know what other people do about weeknight dinners. Does one person cook and one person clean? Who does the shopping? Who decides what's on the menu? Do you guys eat together?

We both love cooking together, but in the past, we would eat more home-cooked meals when we were staying at my place because I tended to be better organized about having the ingredients we need on hand, etc. Also, I get home about an 1-1.5 hours earlier, so it's easier for me to get a head start on dinner prep. At his place, we would realize there's nothing in the fridge, get too tired to run to decide what to make/run to the store, and just end up ordering in.

This weekend, we made a menu for the week, put together a shopping list, and did groceries together. I think as long as we worked out the meal plan/did the shopping together that would work for me... I'm just curious what other people do.
