    Default Let's Talk About Picky Eaters Again <G>

    I consider myself to be a picky eater since I don't like raw vegetables and
    much prefer hot food. If I'm going to have a ham and cheese sandwich (for
    example) I want it served hot with melted cheese on toasted warm bread...
    the type of bread doesn't really matter. Just make it a hot sandwich,
    please

    My oldest brother left here this morning. He and his girlfriend came to
    pick up some furniture. The weather and other events conspired against us
    so they wound up staying here for a week. My brother will pretty much eat
    anything. His g/f is another story altogether. If she even *thinks*
    something has seasoning on it, she'll shun it. OMG, what's that green
    speck? If it has any hint of seasoning she wouldn't touch it. She won't
    eat fish or sea food, only dark meat chicken and well done beef or pork.

    I bent over backwards trying to accomodate her. I didn't dare sprinkle
    oregano or basil on the pizza I made (but she will eat pepperoni, and was
    snacking on braunschweiger on crackers, go figure). My brother told me not
    to tell her I'd put any cheese other than mozzarella on the pizza. And for
    gods sake don't buy that fresh mozz! If the cheese doesn't come shredded in
    a bag there will be hell to pay!

    I made breakfast one morning last week. I like to make omelets but
    apparently that's too exotic. Okay, scrambled eggs then. I said I could
    put some cheese in the scrambled eggs; Mom made them that way for us when we
    were kids. OH NO! Okay, I can make plain scrambled eggs. Or boiled eggs.
    She got in a snit because I mentioned cheese and eggs in the same sentence.
    Then she said she wanted hash browns. Hello, does this look like a
    restaurant? I didn't have any potatoes, I don't know how she expected me to
    make hash browns. I had tater tots in the freezer, those sufficed. She
    still refused to eat any eggs, she just had tater tots. My brother and I
    had eggs, bacon *and* tater tots. <G>

    I did manage to make a pot of chicken & dumplings with chicken leg quarters.
    She ate a couple of bowls of it without any complaints. I didn't tell her
    I'd added poultry seasoning to it. God forbid she knew it had sage, thyme
    and marjoram added to it. Not to mention I put some bay leaves in when I
    was boiling the chicken to make the broth.

    We were trying to come up with dinner ideas the other night. We'd already
    had chicken & noodles before the chicken and dumplings (she freaked out when
    she saw specks of green in the noodles... I'd added some of Penzey's Tuscan
    seasoning. OOOPS).

    Since we'd already eaten chicken a couple of times and I'm not really a fan
    of chicken I said how about some beef? She said, "I want those instant
    [mashed] potatoes." Okay, for that we'd need some gravy. How about swiss
    steak? My brother said "YUM!" She said, "I don't like swiss steak." Okay,
    meatloaf? No, she doesn't like meatloaf. Huh. Okay, how about pot roast
    with potatoes? She didn't want pot roast. She wanted instant potatoes!
    Lady, I'm getting really tired of your demands. You want instant potatoes,
    buy some and knock yourself out. You have free run of the kitchen, make a
    buttload of instant potatoes. We wound up broiling steaks - hers had to be
    well done - and I boiled new potatoes. But I didn't dare put anything like
    parsley or dill weed on them.

    Thank Bast they're on their way now to TX now. They'll be dropping off
    furniture in TN at my other brothers house on the way. Now I can cook
    whatever I want to without a fear of someone freaking out about green specks
    on their food You'd think she was 3 rather than 63.

    Yet you say that Olive Garden is one of her very favorite
    places to eat, right? Or does she just go along and not eat
    anything. Because I'm pretty sure everything on their menu
    involves green specs or other seasonings.

    What is her problem. If you're going to be so picky, why get
    involved with what's for dinner discussions anyway? Just have
    your instant potatoes and let the grownups have their swiss
    steak if they want it.

    Maybe she has hidden attributes other than just being bitchy. My
    youngest child decided at age eight that he was going to be a picky
    eater. "I don't like that, I can't eat that, That's nasty." Just some of
    his comments. After being told he could eat what was on the table or go
    hungry he changed his mind. He's 45 yo now and will eat about anything,
    including snake, rabbit, whatever. You just gotta get them young, at age
    63 the woman obviously is set in a rut she will never climb out of.

    Yeah, she's 63. Her idea of a good restaurant is the Golden Corral buffet
    or Olive Garden. I'm surprised she eats that pseudo-Italian food. It
    probably has herbs in it

    LOL Too true. For me it is my brother's son who won't eat anything red
    and a lot of other things. I am still pissed about the time he came for
    Christmas and we had about a dozen different things for dessert and he
    whined that there was nothing he liked. Too bad, so sad. My wife wants
    to invite them for Easter because we have lamb and my his wife both like
    it. I vetoed that because they will expect us to invite their 36 year
    old child and I refuse to cater to him.

    You can probably expect that she would not have a sexual appetite to
    compensate for her picky eating.

    He's no picnic either But really, I don't go to someone's house (much
    less spend a week in it) and bitch about the food. She had the opportunity
    to go to the grocery store with us and pick out whatever she wanted to eat.
    She opted not to. She had free run of the kitchen; help yourself to what's
    in the the pantry, the freezer. I sure didn't see her break her neck trying
    to cook anything. LOL

    We must have been lucky. Our son was always pretty good about eating
    just about anything. When he was about 5 he loved fish and if he dis
    balk at some things I just told him it was fish and he would eat it. His
    favourite vegetable used to be broccoli. He wasn't crazy about lamb, but
    he would eat it.

    Jill, you have just run into a person who wants to be 'special' and 'catered
    to'. Such people at the extreme are often trying to control the enviroment
    and make everyone pander to them. Yes, it's how a 3 year old acts when they
    are first establishing independence. Some, never grow out of it. There is
    no evidence she even offered to cook.

    Any isolated one of the above and i'd not react. Collectively, I'd show her
    ass to the door and give directions to the nearest hotel. 'Here's my number
    when ready to pickup the furniture'.

    To hear her tell it she loves chain restaurants. Surely they use herbs and
    spices at Olive Garden? Or at the Golden Corral, which is a buffet place?
    I don't get it.

    Invite Big Niece and she can eat his share, like Jack Sprat
    and his wife.

    She probably saves the picky routine for when she can get
    the most attention out of it. Like when she's at someone's
    house.

    Usually this means a person thinks of food items as their own
    entity rather than being composed of ingredients. So something
    like focaccia seems acceptable, whereas adding oregano to something
    does not. Chicken pot pie is acceptable, paprika is not. Etc.

    It must be a common attitude, otherwise how could all these
    big-box chains even survive? Their food is so predictable.

    We just didn't deal with picky eaters. If they wanted to starve, fine.
    Let them starve. Trust me, when the time came, they never starved.
    There was always peanut butter and jelly.
