My mil is flying home from a trip this evening. We have been picking up her mail and keeping an eye on her house for the 4 weeks. Dh will be bringing her home right around dinner time. I know she will be tired so I thought maybe it would be nice to leave her something to eat at home. The problem, she is an EXTREMELY picky eater. She hasn't liked anything I cooked. When she eats out, she complains about everything. I am stumped as to what to leave her that she will actually like. Do you ladies have any brilliant ideas? I asked DH and typical man response, "don't worry about it". What would you do? Maybe DH is right and, I shouldn't worry about it. Ideas?

If dh said don't worry about it, I wouldn't worry about it . .

I know. I just know there is literally nothing in her kitchen.

Then get her a gift card for a restaurant or grocery store and let her get what she wants.

I know you're trying to be considerate, but if she's that bad you'll just end up causing yourself more stress over something that doesn't need to be an issue to begin with.

Your husband said don't worry about it and you admit that she's probably not going to like whatever you make/get. Just don't worry about it. She's a grown woman and can feed herself.

I guess you're right.
