I am going to cook vs I will be cooking in a while


How to say I am going to cook in another way? <-----Question from original thread title added to post by moderator (Florentia52)----->

Is “I will be cooking in a while?” Sounds wrong? What is the other way to say i will be cooking in the next few hours?

    Speaking for myself, usually I use “cook” with an object: I’ll be cooking/making something for the picnic in a while. I’ll be cooking supper in a while. I plan to cook supper in a while/pretty soon.

    "Cooking" is often used without an object, to mean an activity.

    What's mom doing? Oh, she is cooking. She seems to spend all day in the kitchen.
