Well I am finally getting back to the daily grind of things, life sure has been a bumpy ride the past couple of months. But they say whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger...or go completely insane. I know its one of the two! ;-)
The hubby and I have found ourselves staying with his parents until we get things situated. Which I don't mind, they are great people! I feel very fortunate to have in-laws I get along with, I know some of you are not as lucky.
There is only one obstacle I am discovering...my MIL is a VERY picky eater! Now I know where the hubbs gets it from! At times it can be a tad frustrating...MIL doesn't like peas, carrots, celery, sweet potatoes, likes cooked broccoli but not raw, likes raw cauliflower but not cooked and that is just a few items from the veggie corner of the food pyramid! What is worse is she isn't willing to try anything if it contains anything she doesn't like or is off the norm. I think that is the most frusterating part of it since it is easy to mask the taste of certain foods while you are cooking and others have a change of flavor during cooking. >.<
I am picky about certain things, but I am willing to try them. Currently I am a point in my life where I am not even sure if I really dont like certain foods anymore since it has been SO long since I had them. Yet I am still scared to make something containing those items because if I dont like it, there is a high chance no one else will either. And I HATE wasting food!
So now I have the challenge of getting creative with a slightly limited variety of foods. In a way I am looking forward to being more creative with your everyday average foods. However I can't get too creative since that runs the risk of her not trying it either. Hmmm, this is going to be interesting.
Now of course I could just continue to make the same foods, the same way and she will be completely happy but what fun is that?! There are too many flavors out there to stick to same ones all the time!
Anyone else have picky eaters in their lives?
