Every night I cook dinner. It's generally well balanced and varied. Most of the time, it's even healthy. Paul mostly eats whatever I cook without complaint, and without comment.
Pierce usually picks at his food and eats one or two things.
Cort generally eats the fruit, if there is any, and screams and throws everything else to the floor.
My dear, dear Reid eats everything on his plate, every time. And he doesn't object to seconds.
There is one thing, though, that Paul does.not.like.
Every time I make it, he comments about it.
And I say, "I know you don't like it, but you don't have to eat it".
And he says, "Well, it's just not my favorite"
The thing is, I just love it. So two or three times a year, I make it despite how Paul feels. Just so I can eat it. Comfort food.
What is this dreadful, despised dish?
It's your standard green bean casserole.
That's right folks, in this case, green bean casserole does NOT mean love:
I can understand why he doesn't like it. In fact, I don't know many people who are as enamoured by green bean casserole as me. Actually, when I think about the ingredients, it does sound kind of gross. But I adore green beans, and the casserole just pulls green beans into a sort of comforting goodness. Perfect for crisp fall days.
Lucky for Paul, I only torment him with the dish a couple of times a year. And, in every case, there are other options on the table for him to eat.
Do you make any meals that you know your spouse hates, or am I the only one?
