    He's actually pretty good, but doesn't consider things like soup a meal so I tend to make these on his nights out.
    He doesn't even mind me trying out new recipes that I try and create - and often fail at

    My family is polish and soup is entree and not a meal! Could he have had a similar experience growing up?

    I consider it a meal though!

    Extremely, extremely fussy.

    To save myself a few hours listing the food he won't eat (EVERYTHING!) here's what he will eat...

    Plain white fish. Filleted, such as basic flake etc. Grilled, as he doesn't like greasy batter.
    Tuna.
    Potatoes. But not mashed.
    Pasta, eg ricotta and spinach filled cannelloni (minimal spinach or he won't eat it), Mac n cheese, gnocchi with a mild pesto/cream sauce.
    If the pasta sauce is tomato based, it must be completely smooth/pureed.
    Plain cheese pizza
    Corn
    Toast with Vegemite and real butter

    No meat. I use the alternatives like "fake" schnitzel/burgers/sausages.
    Rice (plain white).
    No fruit. Oh wait, he'll very occasionally eat an apple, peeled and washed.
    Cereal.
    Chocolate.

    That is all. Pain in the a$s!

    Wow! Did his family eat a pretty narrow range of food growing up or is this just your dh's taste


    Eta: I'm glad he eats chocolate. I would have had to judge him harshly if he didn't.

    No fussiness at our place. DH eats anything and will roll with whatever (including bludge dinners). He loves to cook and makes much nicer dinners than I do.

    My DH also likes pretty much everything, eats anything, won't waste food, never complains and always says thanks (I do the majority of cooking here).
    He says he eas his family was poor growing up so there were no treats you just had what you were given. He went to boarding school aged 10/11 and he said he often went hungry as the portions were tiny so he ate what he could get and there was obviously no choice in food. Then he had to do a year in the army so was on army food! He must have felt liberated when he finally had some control over his food.
