Do you ever make meals that you KNOW your DH/SO hates?

Do you ever make meals that you KNOW that your DH/SO hates because you and the kids love them? Do you make him a seperate meal or make him fend for himself?

I used to make this shrimp pasta with curry in it...I know it probably doesnt sound all that great but just thinking about it is making my mouth water lol plus since I'm a beginner cook it was one of the VERY few meals that I knew I could make well and my daughter LOVED it.

DH hates it lol he doesnt like the taste of curry and no matter how little I put in there he could taste it but if I left it out completly the pasta didnt taste as good to me...so some days I just made it anyways and he ate whatever lol

Have you ever done something like this?

  • Dh doesn't like meatloaf very much. It's just not his thing. I still make it though and I am actually making it tonight. I'm 99% sure he will eat it as he always does, but if he doesn't, it won't hurt my feelings, just do not expect me to cook a separate meal for you. He knows how to make himself a sandwich LOL

  • As of yet I have not made anything he "hates"... He's not afraid of food, and eats what is put before him without complaint. If I know he doesn't like it, I avoid making it because we cook at home to save money, and his lunch the next day is supper leftovers.

  • Impossible! My husband will eat anything that doesn't eat him first! I'm the picky one, so I make whatever I'm in the mood for & he likes it no matter what. If I make him something that I don't like, I just make myself something else. Not a problem.

  • Sometimes. There are also some meals that I can't stand but that he and the kids love that he makes sometimes. We're both ok with that, and if either of us makes something the other dislikes, we just make sure to make extra on the sides so there's enough food that we do like to fill us up.

  • I actually haven't found a food that my hubby dislikes so if and when I do, I'd still make it if it was something the kids and I enjoyed.

  • I use ingredients that he hates and just don't tell him. He hates mushroom- I made chicken with a cream of mushroom base sauce. He loved it.
