Not About Food 78

Help with the in-laws

I wouldn't have guessed it based on how my husband eats, but I have married into a boring food family (their "caterer" of choice is Sam's club). I try bringing foods that I enjoy but that I don't think are too crazy (to their lasagna and and meatball Christmas dinner I brought petite toasts with hunks of good parmesan drizzled with honey), but typically my husband and one other couple are the only people who eat them. When people do eat it they then go on and on about how "gourment" it is (in a way that makes me uncomfortable). Should I give up and stop bringing anything?

I guess the bigger question is "how do you blend the appetites of two very different families?"
