I do ALL the shopping in my family. I also do all the cooking. My wife hasn't used our kitchen since we moved into the house three years ago. We're both very happy with this arrangement.

My wife and I do the grocery shopping together. It's a "thing" we have. I enjoy the time with her, and she is gracious enough to tolerate me while being the ruthless shopper she is.

What's the big deal. Is there something wrong with a man shopping for groceries. What is this supposed gender bias: Only women are capable to shop?
I worked my way through college working in a grocery store. Consequently, I am more that qualified to shop for groceries and do the majority for our family.

I think the advertising spokesperson is mistaken and that men really are cooking and shopping more. With all the food shows and competitive cooking on Food Network and other channels I think that more men want cook, and when you want to cook you want to choose your ingredients.

When my wife does the grocery shopping, we always seem to run out of beer and Slim Jims. When I do the shopping, no problem.
