I'll try to sum this up. My BIL's wife is an evil shrew and no one can stand her. She makes every holiday and get-together miserable. They always host Thanksgiving at their big fancy house. Last year, she made me dry her dishes and then complained about the way I did it! Anyway, out of respect for my husband's parents, we suffer through this every year. I Facebooked the shrew last week and offered to make a sweet potato casserole with a yummy crumble topping and bring it. She said sure so we bought the stuff, including a bag of pecans, which are expensive! This morning, she sent me a message saying that she's going to make a sweet potato casserole with marshmallows because that's what one of her daughter's likes and she promised her!! So now, do I make the cassserole and take it anyway, even though it probably won't get eaten, or just not take anything and be stuck with the stuff that we bought? Believe me, if we could get out of going without it causing a big ruckus, we would!!Answer Question

I agree with the others, make yours and I am sure yours will get eaten. My DH loves the ones with marshmallows, but I hate them. I made a sweet potato casserole with a crumble topping and it's freaking fantastic. I have hated sweet potatoes all my life and this dish puts all others I have tried to shame. Yours will be wonderful and even if they don't get eaten you fulfilled your 'obligation' to bring something. What would be even better is if you were helping clean up and she had leftovers of her own dish. You could ask her with a sneer, 'what do you want me to do with these?'
sorry, I'm feeling a little catty today.
