I am SICK and TIRED of trying to make my husband like my new way of cooking! I went to ALL THIS TROUBLE of making vegan potato pancakes this morning, and they turned out nice. Shredded potatoes, a little tofu, some onion, seasonings to make it taste egg-y (mustard, a little curry, salt & pepper) a little corn starch and flour for binders, and water. I didn't to serve dry pan fried hash browns again, you know?
He took one bite and SPIT THEM OUT! They were made of Yukon Gold potatoes instead of the normal russets, is all. He also hates homemade mashed potatoes, and prefers boxed, because they have no lumps. He hates homemade cake, prefers boxed, because it's lighter, etc.
I see why my 70 year old mother refuses to cook for my father anymore. He gets only TV dinners. When someone ONLY complains about your food, it gets old really fast. You know, my husband used to complain about my cooking when we were newlyweds. I used to be in to health food, vegetarianism, etc. I cooked this totally vegan Indian feast once, chana dal, curried cauliflower & potatoes, papadums, chutney, basmati rice, even gulab jamun for dessert (deep fried milk balls in rose syrup.) I spent all day, probably 12 hours total. After eating, he complained that he was hungry, where was the main dish?
If it doesn't have a face, he won't eat it! He won't stop eating tuna fish, even though I've told him time and again about the mercury it contains. He can sit down and, I kid you not, have six tuna fish sandwiches! I've seen him eat 12 blueberry muffins ALONG WITH DINNER. He'll go to Red Robin and have a burger, fries, and a shake, still be hungry, order a SECOND entire meal, then stop on the way home and get candy bars. He's NORMAL WEIGHT too! I'm seeing red, I must stop, my heart is palpitating,
