    Hubby is adamant he does not like mango and avocado. I've never thought to trick him, he just doesn't eat it when I do. No skin off my nose?
    It affects me when people are so adamant about not liking a pivotal ingredient in most meals because:

    a) it makes grocery shopping more difficult and more expensive
    b) it makes menu planning a nightmare
    c) it means I have to miss out on the things I love because somebody else isn't a fan

    Mango, avocado, and plastic cheese are not quite as common in day-to-day meals as tomato, onion, garlic or mushroom. It's a little easier to pick avocado out of a salad or plastic cheese off of a sandwich than it is to pick tomato out of lasagne.

    Anyway, pretty sure this thread was supposed to be lighthearted

    Haha I totally understand!! I can tell if someone has poured the boiling water THROUGH the tea bag (as it should be ) or if they've just poured it on top

    My dad reckons he's lactose intolerant. Yeah BS. He drinks lite milk cos he thinks full cream makes him react (lactose level is the same between full and skim- it's sugar not fat) and yet he will eat ice cream and apple turnovers and cream. Just not proper milk! Annoying...

    DH used to tell me he couldn't eat cabbage as it made him vomit. Yet his favorite salad is the Changs Chinese Salad (made on Chinese cabbage) - he thinks it's lettuce.

    DH refuses to eat Tuna, however loved the 'chicken bake' I made the other night.

    My Df doesn't eat mushrooms or anything he classifies as "trees" - broccoli, cauliflower, green leafy veg other than salad. I'm a bit like - eat it, don't eat it, pick around it, make a sandwich, there's bread and jam.

    I love these. When I was a teenager my nan had a dog and I gave a friend dog chocolate, then told her afterwards she went nuts. But I asked a vet and she said its just older chocolate pieces from the factory.

    I love 'trees'!!! I would do this with DH, but he makes me feel so guilty! he just refuses to eat for the entire night because apparently there's no point if we're not eating the same thing.

    I can't wait to have kids so they can be on my side of the tomato war and we can overrule him

    How do people cope with fussy partners? A friend of mine is so darn fussy I actually have no idea how his wife manages to cook. If my DP were fussy I would have to seriously consider simply not cooking for him as it would drive me bonkers! Give me salmon! Give me broccollini!

    Sounds like you already have a child there…
