    Ahah... this sounds familiar to me

    I spend 2 hours (because that's what it takes) to make a tasty bouillon from grass fed beef which I buy directly from the farmers, plus all the roots and herbs... and the critique is that I should have added some of that synthetic universal spice...

    I think that all of you with rude partners should remind them of this:

    "I'm sorry, but your tongue wasn't inside my mouth when I was cooking to taste and adjust the seasoning specifically to your liking... that's why I placed the salt and pepper shaker right there in front of your plate." *sweet smile*

    Seriously.
    Salt and pepper.... directly in front of them.

    Goodness gracious...
    Rude partners!

    Oh hilarious. I'm sure he'd love to put his tongue in my mouth while I'm trying to cook.

    I just love how I made him lamb chops with spearmint pesto sauce, a baked acorn squash and some sliced tomatoes and he raised his eyebrows and picked at it delicately in case it would kill him. But what did he make for me? Corn on the cob nuked in plastic wrap, nuked Trader Joe's flavored rice with soybeans and nuked Trader Joe's brined beef brisket. A cornucopia of processed food and starch from Mr. Hearthealthy.

    As in... I don't taste things the same as you taste things.
    Different tongues different taste buds and all that.

    I wasn't really suggesting french kissing while cooking dinner... though perhaps that has merits too. Though I can't say I've never done it as I'm often cooking when husband comes home from work.

    Also, I understand the foods that husband eats and doesn't eat because of his preferences.
    And he understands the foods that I eat and do not eat because of preferences or dietary restrictions.
    I don't cook for him the ones he doesn't eat and serve them to him, and he doesn't cook for me the ones I don't eat and serve them to me...

    This goes right back to "rude partner" IMO.

    I don't think it's "bashing" anyone to be frustrated and/or looking for solutions to a relatively minor relationship problem.

    Exactly!

    Recipe-wise, my only faux-pas was to err on the conservative side with spices & other ingredients (herbes de provences, and of course carrots, onions, celery, and apple cider vinegar) AND not adding salt... But you know what, even then it tasted salty to me!!

    At the end of the day I can only wish my big-baby husband would eat at least as well as our toddler (<-- I can at least control/incentivize/bargain with the latter).

    This morning I saw in the trash the leftovers from my husband's dinner: Milano cookies and a root beer.

    OF COURSE chicken broth cannot compete with THAT!
    ::sigh::

    Hey no worries. I just try to be easy enough to live with that my wife can complain about me to my face if she needs to, y'know?
    Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

    Right. Because I didn't tell him how I felt about his disappointment.
    This isn't husband-bashing, it's called problem-solving.

    Today my husband isn't tuned into primal and therefore I am working on keeping my sanity. Venting helps.

    But most importantly if you've found ways to help your significant other turn the corner (wife or husband!) I'd love to hear how you did it. Of course I want him healthier and stronger than ever before!! I love that darn big baby of mine

    Bottom to top, my husband's food pyramid =cookies, lemonade, corn, pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs baked in grandma's beans (a Wegmans atrocity), root beer.

    He hates eggs, anything green except green beans, anything dairy except cheddar and roquefort (woot!).
    Did I mention he loves SUGAAAAARRR!!?

    How do you fix that?
