Married To A Non-Foodie, How To Cope?

From reading many of the postings on the Chowhound boards, it appears that many of you are either married to or have sig. others who are also Chowhounds and "foodies". That's great, because you can discuss and obsess over wonderful food.

However, my (wonderful) husband is not into food at all. He's a very picky eater and will not eat: raw tomatoes, cooked tomatoes unless pureed, onions, any color bell pepper, anything spicy, brocolli, shrimp, scallops. Let's just say that the only veggies he'll eat are lettuce (not too dark green either!), peas, green beans, and sometimes carrotts.

I cook most meals at home...
how in the world can I remain a Chowhound and cook something that my husband will eat?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
