    Simple :-D Take away food for a week did it for my hubby

    I refused to cook at night when I was working full time, by the time I got home I was exhausted and the last thing I wanted to do was cook then clean up while he relaxed. So I made us have take away for a week straight then on the weekend after cooking a lovely meal I asked him if he wanted that every night. He said he did so I told him to let me buy a slow cooker and explained to him that the food would cook while I was at work and he'd be able to come home to a lovely meal every night. It worked a treat

    thats a good idea, my DP works away during the week, so would be hard doing it that way though!

    I'd just cook your husband really bad food when he's home. Then you can cunningly explain that a slow cooker would do it all for you. Make sure you have an adorable innocent look on your face.

    If that doesn't work, just buy the darned thing while he's away. Present from your MIL?

    I find it very bland without the olives. There is a simple fix though - add a little salt and a little pepper.

    Don't forget the parmesan to serve
