you may want to kindly suggest to your mother that maybe if she had put in a little more effort in the kitchen, everything would have turned out a little different.

I've thought of that, gome. Although, I suspect the room that was the real issue had a bed in it. She fed us all very well, regardless of her cooking skills.

The wrong impression? Sink me! I dare say that's impossible.

The women of the latest (my) generation IME have poor domestic skills. I blame the baby boomers for pampering their "princesses."

Often I'm trying to impress her. She is comfortable with her skill level and the dishes she knows, and they are often great. If she experiments it is in a pretty limited way of changing little things she always does, or by applying a technique she knows to something new.
Girls are like that. I can have the best camera, having studied the pictures from the greatest photographers, my wife who is an art major will still casually take better pictures than I ever will with a f*** iphone. !luc

I'd concur. How old are you? Most every woman I know my age (20) only knows how to use the kitchen to bake cupcakes. I do suspect that this isn't merely a limited and narrow worldview, but rather a microcosmic example of the state of our current culture, at large.

I think that the OP presented it crudely, but he has a point. people in general, if it isn't their proffession of their hobby, don't cook as much or as well as they used to. middle class families don't eat that many home cooked meals around a table, unless it is a special occasion.

In conclusion: women should by the time they're 20 have a solid range of culinary skills established, and then develop these skills until marriage where they should combine them with post-meal sexual favors as a 'retainer' of sorts to the husband. I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that they should also have well-honed dish washing, ironing, and mopping skills as well.

But too bad this current generation of women don't know their places, and because of this the 'merican family is weakened.

Actually, it seems to me that the 20-30 year old American male is pretty lucky. Female domesticity is all the rage these days. Thank (or blame) too little direct experience with condoned sexism and too much direct experience with divorced parents.
