Thankfully, my mister was raised by a mom who was into eating some weird shit (there's a story about boiled seahorses) and hasn't eaten 'four-footed critters' in 20-something years, so he graciously accepts whatever cooked meat I put on his plate. I prefer my steaks on the way rare side of medium, and he's grown to appreciate it.
Chicken, though - different story. If it shows even the slightest hint of pink near the bone, he asks I cook it more...then whinges a bit that it's dry when he does eat it.
For the record, mine doesn't call anything gross - except to kid around with me about the amount of meat I'm eating/losing weight on - but he does request that his food gets cooked longer. I just let him cook it. Putting mine in at the very end is a great suggestion, and one I should have thought of long ago.
She totally copped to it, although she said used it as tea, never ate the seahorses.
I'd like to know where the hell to buy dried seahorses.
When the kiddos were little we trained them to say, " I think that might be too sophisticated for my palate", rather than "gross". Completely hilarious coming out of a 4yo!

GW- Goals are no longer weight-related
Early on in our marriage we had a friendly competition each week to try and get 'meal of the week', just to stop us from sliding into an half-assed rut. Now we have kids, they have taken their appreciation of our cooking to another level, from 'meal of the week' -> 'meal of the century', or even 'meal of the millenium'.
Of course, that usually correlates with days when they forgot to have afternoon tea....
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

I couldn't even salvage the meat since the joe sauce was thickened with corn starch and flour.
