    Default How food fussy is your family?

    Last week I made DH a fruit salad to have for breakfasts, 3 days worth, on the 3 day he tells me that next time he wants all the fruit cut and packed separately and assembled on the day because after a while it all blends in and the fruit tastes like each other...
    He also refused to eat meatballs that I had warmed up with some vegetables because he was convinced I had steamed them!
    He won't touch veal if he knows it's veal, or tuna even tho he likes it.
    Anything frozen so I can't precook anything.
    So many things I can't be bother putting down but it sure makes my life so much harder!

    If my DH was this fussy, I'd be telling him to cook and prepare his own meals! I do a majority of the cooking but if my DH doesn't like something I have made he will make himself something else.

    This should be a fussy DH thread

    My hubby is seriously the fussiest person I have ever met. Where I do start... Ok, so he won't eat left overs. It doesn't matter what it is, he just doesn't do left overs! He wont eat tuna, eggs (unless in a cake/slice etc), beans (of any kind), peas, cauliflower, canned food... YES canned food! he says that its for 'poor people' um.. what else? oh he doesn't eat soups. He only recently started eating potato like as in roast potato and mashed. But only if he cooks it. I could go on and on!!

    Not fussy at all but I cook things separately as I don't eat red or white meat and the boys do - plus when my family comes over we have vegans, vegetarians, diabetics, some intolerances and a few kosher so I always cater for their needs!

    It's a very personal choice. Some husbands/wives are happy to

    DH and I are extremely picky eaters. It's been quite a challenge to prepare healthier meals for us all so DS eats well.

    My DP is not fussy AT ALL. It is truly a dream to cook for him. He has favourites if course, but will happily eat anything I put in front of him without complaint. He does a lot of the cooking though, which is lovely, and I'm not fussy either.

    I particularly appreciate DP because my exH was EXTREMELY fussy. To the point where I gave up cooking for him, it was just too frustrating and time consuming.

    Our kids are really good too, they'll eat almost anything we serve. We have 5 kids between us so there's no room for fussiness. It's a case of 'eat it or go hungry' here...we're not running a restaurant!!

    My husband used to be fussy but it was getting to the point where I wasn't getting to eat my favourite foods because he didn't like them! So now I cook something we both like almost every night, but if I feel like something he doesn't like, if it's not easily adaptable to his taste, then too bad, he can eat it or have toast! Usually he eats it though and he has actually expanded the range of flavours he will eat!

    DH will eat pretty much anything lol as long as you can't taste coffee or mustard in it then he will eat it! (Even if he knows those things are in there, just doesn't want to taste them).

    Pfft! If my husband was like that, I wouldn't be preparing him anything.
