Do you like to cook or be cooked for?

Over the weekend I had a family BBQ and did all the cooking. Smoked Brisket, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Cornbread, Blueberry Cobbler and Vanilla Ice cream. At the end I was exhausted and my husband asked me why I do it....well, I love it! Yes, I could have had a potluck but for this particular day, I WANTED to do it all....I love to cook for my family and do it quite often. So which do you prefer? Cooking or being cooked for? Is it a control issue to sometimes just want to do it all so you have full control of the menu?
