    My DH is fussy so I don't cook. There's no point, he won't like anything. So I let him cook most of the time. He's not a good cook, but he does ok. I'm not fussy so whatever works for me On the odd occassion I do cook, I just do meat and 3 veg (mash potato, brocolli and carrot generally) or a pasta bake with a bought sauce.

    Default Does anyone else 'experiment' on friends and family?

    My partners the same! He's a vegetarian because he 'doesn't like the taste of meat'. I don't have a problem with people who have strong views about animal cruelty or whatever and that's why they're veggos, but jeesus, he'll eat ham but not bacon, and fish. That's it.

    I'm sugar free but I love chicken and beef and ham, etc. I went paleo for a few weeks earlier in the year and we couldn't agree on a single meal to cook or place to go out to eat. In the end I gave up paleo eating so that I could actually cook a meal for us both.

    He does the same thing 'oh ill eat anything, I love everything you cook,'. Not True! I made a gorgeous zucchini rice for him and he hated it. I offered to make him bacon and eggs for brekkie and he said no thanks I don't like bacon. That was news to me. It's damned frustrating.

    I never muck around with allergies, and I never muck around with people that I don't know extremely well. I mostly do it cause I am actually interested in psychology and just how much of an effect the mind can have on the body. it bugs me when he doesn't like certain brands because I do the groceries and it irks me to spend so much on something like toilet paper.

    My dhs nana will only let my dh make her coffee when he is around. If my fil makes her one she gags and refuses to drink it. I watched my fil make nana a coffee one day before nana noticed and told him to tip it out and get dh to make it. Dh pretended to tip it out and make it again but then served her the coffee my fil made. Nana raved about how good that coffee was all afternoon.

    I can imagine that might get annoying but that's actually sweet that she loves your DH's coffee so much. It's lovely he'll always have that little bond

    I use Rick Steins beef stroganoff recipe. No tomato past, just paprika and so nice.

    ETA I can understand not liking 2 minute noodles. They taste like cardboard, im pretty sure they're not food.
    They're the foods he flat out refuses to eat.

    I LOVE 2 minute noodles!!! Mmmmm ... Mi Goreng goodness

    That's what I do too. I'm not going to miss out on things I enjoy, if I'm the one cooking then I'll cook what I want with what I want. Hubby is fully aware of what I use, he can either eat it or not. He doesn't eat zucchini either, I still use it in the vast majority of my pasta dishes (in the sauce, it makes it so creamy). I don't let it control me.

    This thread has made me realise how fussy I can be whooops haha not with food, I'll pretty much eat anything when it comes to meat/vegies.

    But I'll only use one type of toilet paper, tooth paste, body wash, I only like weetbox and not the homebrand version (I swear they taste different), I only like Brownes Hilo milk and get annoyed when DH buys another version, I hate lollies that aren't Allens and chocolate that isn't cadbury. Oh god I wonder how annoyed my DH gets at me?!?!

    I don't put brands in the same category - I am fussy about the brands of certain staples I buy. Tinned tomatoes are a good example of this. As are tissues and toilet paper (sometimes).

    There's that Sex and the city episode were Carrie says she is allergic to parsley when she just doesn't like it. I think that's why some people "test" allergies, which is so dangerous.
    Im vegeterian and have had people lie about stocks etc. its just mean.

    I didn't like the tuna story, I always buy ethically farmed tuna (not for me!). And would hate to be lied to about it. Same goes for eggs
