I have gotten completely rotten since retiring as far as grocery shopping. DH works right by a grocery store, and he goes off a verbal list (and habit), calling me as needed, and thus, we have the regular staples.

When I go, (usually alone), I'm shopping for meal ideas as well as just restocking, so I might come home with stuff he's never heard of, but he likes it when I cook it.

Or things like specialty beer. He hates it when he asks me what kind of beer I want and I tell him to get something interesting that I haven't had before, but looks like it would be good (we did this a few times over seasonal beers this winter).

That gets a "Sounds like you'll be buying your own beer" reply.

He's not a cook, and I don't think he's ever brought something home and said "this looks like it'd be tasty." maybe a little, back when he was buying frozen dinners and pizza...but that's another benefit to me being retired.
