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

    Gosh I'm lucky. DH isn't fussy at all!
    He will eat anything I cook. He's not a fan of pasta but will eat it of I cook it.

    I've always been the more fussy one. I have always been a veggo so I got used to making 2 foods every now and then, DH would eat a lot of veggo foods too though. Now that we are both vegans it's sooooo much easier to cook!!

    My son won't eat cabbage or mushrooms but will happily eat (and ask for seconds) "labbage" and "brushrooms"

    No. No you don't.
    Yours is like mine.

    On the short list of things I must avoid...

    Onion
    Salad dressing except for on Caesar Salad
    Any lettuce that is not Cos or Iceberg or Butter
    Spinach
    Rocket
    "Fancy" lettuces
    Cabbage
    Zucchini
    Cooked Carrot
    Anything Semi-dried tomato flavour
    Fresh tomatoes (he'll do tomato pasta sauces, but not have fresh tomato chunks in anything)
    Egg
    Lamb
    Kangaroo meat
    Most pork (he will occasionally be okay with pork mince)
    Cheese, unless it's melted on top, like on pizza or enchiladas or something
    Beans (green and small beans, like kidney, baked beans, etc)
    Any "fancy" cheese (eg. other than parmesan or tasty)
    Any chicken other than drumsticks or thigh
    Thick Sausages
    Flavoured sausages (other than Italian or herbed)
    Marinade of any sort
    Seafood other than calamari
    Any sort of antipasto type ingredient
    Bread that isn't white
    Any sort of sauce
    Casseroles - he can't stand dishes where food is combined together
    Most cooked vegetables
    Potatoes (except hot chips)

    And the list just keeps on going and going...

    What do we eat? Yeah... not much. lol. I used to love to cook. Now I just read cooking mags and websites and daydream. It's like my p*rn... looking at something I'll never get.

    IF all we ever ate was Caesar salad and sausages, takeaway, tacos (soft shell only) and nachos (the most morning basic ones - corn chips with melted cheese and jar of salsa... no meat, no beans, no guac, etc)... he would be happy.

    Luckily I managed to convince him to try steak... which he now eats... but he wastes so much food because he simply won't eat a lot of things I put before him.

    He doesn't evne like homemade lasagne... he prefers Sara Lee mush...

    I wish I could do that... DP only likes Eagle Boys... but I can't really eat pizza... it makes me sick... but Domino's healthier individual pizzas are fine. So we mostly just don't get pizza. lol.

    Holy cow!! I'm so sorry you have to deal with that! It must be torture. I'm so lucky my DH is pretty easy-going with food.

    Hmm, see if someone did an *experiment* on me by sneaking avocado into my food, I would be p!ssed off. I am not fussy, it is one of my few dislikes, it doesn't impact anybody so please respect my choice. So as much as dh's strange quirks frustrate me, I won't do that to him either.

    IKR? It's so annoying.

    I WISH I could just CONVINCE him to try things. I have a few things I loathe and will no matter what... but he seems to hate everything and I think a lot of it is due to his mother's not-so-good cooking of those foods.

    It's why he thought he hated steak... he didn't hate steak, he just didn't like a bit of cheap steak cooked over low for 30 mins turned over a million times until it hurts your jaw to chew it.

    I managed to convince him to give steak a go, and I'm working on making him try fish... but I don't think he's willing to try much more.

    I had lots of things I thought I hated due to the way I first had them prepared, but I'm not a stubborn person who will say, "Nope, hate it, go away from me." I'll take a tiny bit and try it and then go, "Oh, okay, actually that was quite nice..." DP doesn't. Very frustrating indeed.

    So sometimes, I hide stuff in his food so that we can all eat it. I want meals healthier and full of veges... so I hide them, so DD at least gets the benefit of it.

    I've tried cooking seperate meals, but there's no point if the only people I'm feeding is DP, DD and me, who can't even eat a toddler-sized portion.
