Spanish term or phrase: un buen cocido guarda al marido
THis is from a text about cantinas en Argentina. The Spanish expression is cited:

La existencia moderna, en que el detalle presenta a menudo parecida importancia que lo fundamental, ha sutilizado todavia el arte del bien comer, y por consecuencia, el del buen cocinar … .sirve con frecuencia para dar calor a las amistades y sabor al hogar. Y aquella del certero dicho español, “un buen cocido guarda al marido …”

I understand what it means...Is there anb analogous expression in English?

Thanks
