Food Obsession and Significant Other

madgreek | May 20, 2008 04:06 AM

Without question, I live to eat, but my wife eats to live. For me, it gets a little annoying when I watch my wife eat bland and uninspired food, just because she's used to it. I pretty much do all the cooking, but It seems like every time it's her turn to make a meal, she makes the same thing: grilled cheese on white bread with american. Sometimes, she'll make her "homemade" chili, which consists of canned tomato soup, kidney beans, hamburger, S & P, and an undetectable amount of chili powder. She's annoyed and disturbed by change, and has a long list of things she completely refuses to try, which makes it difficult for me to get my kids to try new things. In fact, we had a discussion last night about how I have to go alone to an interesting sushi restaurant while on our upcoming vacation. She doesn't even want to go into the restaurant. I have to give her credit, though. She has no problem with watching me eating anything, she just often has to have something else. I can't really talk to her about new techniques or interesting recipes and ingredients, because she couldn't care less (probably the reason I joined this forum). So speak up! I want to hear from those of us whose SO's have very little interest in food.
