Househusbands who stay at home in lieu of collecting the weekly paycheck still have a heavy responsibility dealing with the domestic chores that can become very time consuming without a plan.

Face it, there are some things we didn't learn to do well if at all. These can eat up valuable modeling time if you don't learn some new techniques.

Learn To Fold A Shirt

3 Sheets To The Wind

One of those things I have always left for my wife's homemaking expertise again involves "folding".

I thought I was doing pretty good at folding "flats", blankets, sheets and the like until I encountered the "fitted sheet"

Make Dining For Two A Regular Happening

There are few things you can do for your full time working spouse that mean more and actually can be more important than preparing a healthy evening meal.

Eating out all the time is expensive and not conducive to a healthy lifestyle. Without taking the time to investigate, you may feel there are limited options when it comes to home cooking for two; you get sick of the leftovers and you end up throwing away a lot of good food because packaging is geared towards families of four.

This is often the case when you venture into the cooking world for the first time and start looking for things you like to eat as opposed to what is more healthy. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

• Purchase foods which are individually frozen or packaged such as fruits, vegetables, chicken breasts or fish fillets. These foods allow you to prepare only the amount you need. Also, keep on hand low-fat frozen meals and prepackaged single-serving foods, such as ready-to-eat, low-fat, reduced-sodium canned soups.

• Utilize your freezer to its fullest by storing foods to prevent waste and keep it fresher longer. Most foods freeze well, including breads, meats, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts and seeds. You will get the best results by freezing good while it is fresh.

• When possible, cook up some meals in advance and freeze single portions like casseroles and stews. A good practice to get into is dating items in your freezer and rotating from rear to front when adding new items.

• Strive for one dish meals to speed and simplify your cooking. Healthy examples include beef, barley and vegetable stew; chicken, vegetable and rice casserole; turkey and bean casserole (made with turkey breast, white beans and tomatoes); and vegetarian chili with diced vegetables.

• Make wise use of the extras by planning meals that make use of the leftovers. For example, you can cook rice as a side dish and utilize in a future casserole. You can make chicken breasts go further by baking them for an entrée and then using slices for sandwiches.
