There's nothing wrong with green there!

Matt is one of those people who eats with his eyes...he's a food bigot. Excuse me, but I'm going to rant today.

All this was started by some innocent & delicious pistachio pudding. I said:
"Hey - I'm going to make some pudding. Would you like some?"
and he said "of course, duh..."
so I said "How 'bout pistachio? It's really yummy, it tastes just like the nuts"
he stops me here and says "I know what a pistachio is...sounds good."
And since I know the man I married, I had to add the disclaimer..."Great...and-it's-green" and with that I made a break for the kitchen...
to which he said "Hell, no. I'm not eating any green pudding. It's not natural!"

I know...if this is the worst of our problems I'm a lucky woman. But there are so many rules:
  • no purple foods (red cabbage or eggplant - which I really like)
  • double no for eggplant becasue the name creeps him out
  • nothing that looks "new" to him (he has volunteered to try new things if I don't tell him & hide it in his food...little does he know he ate feta cheese in the wraps I made us tonight - in the store called it my super gross stinky cheese)
  • no broccoli, no cauliflower, no cooked carrots, no brussel sprouts, no rice (and yes I do actually like these things)
  • everything "needs" a layer of ranch, mayo, red Tobasco or cheese (I get the cheese...but eeeew - slimy)
  • and now, apparently, no green pudding

Oh well, I feel better now...I might even go get seconds of the butterscotch pudding we made instead...

P.S. I love you, Matt!

And what exactly does he eat when you order chinese?

Greg is pretty picky too, but he has gotten much better with age. Or is it I have gotten less tolerable and if he doesn't eat what i cook, then he doesn't eat.....just like another kids :)

sweet & sour chicken, no vegetables...fried rice is OK since he drowns it in extra sauce.

I have weird eating things. Nothing white and creamy like Mayo, Sour Cream, etc. BARF! I also believe Meat should not be a "loaf", so I won't eat Meatloaf.

Oh and I wouldn't even TOUCH the green pudding. ;)

Wierd! Steve won't eat white stuff either. NO mayo, NO potato salad or coleslaw. Sour Cream and plain yogurt are out too (unless i mask them into what I'm making... ha ha on him). Green pudding... ALL the way baby! Sounds like a tasty treat for me tonight!

Hey girl-
Steve thinks that pistachio pudding is gross, too. That just leaves it all for me!!! I knew there was a reason I liked you......
