thescrappyhomeschooler Posted December 20, 2011 Share Posted December 20, 2011 Okay, so about 3-4 times a year, we host a gathering that includes dh's stepmom and all the relatives from that side of the family. First, let me say that I love these people dearly and enjoy spending time with them. This year's annual Chanukah get together at our house is on Friday. They come here every year after work on a Friday. We eat, exchange gifts, then go to the family service/magician show at temple. I will make latkes- some with onion for the normal people, and some without onion for the picky weirdos! :D The thing is, I eat and cook very, very healthily. They do not. BIL's children eat almost nothing but chicken nuggets, sugar cereal and candy. Not kidding. They all eat the cheapest processed food available. I've made what I considered healthy party food and they just don't eat it. Vegetables seem to be foreign objects to them. Beans/hummus/legumes of any sort are unmentionables. They won't eat fresh salsa or guacamole, or anything fresh, for that matter. Once when I was babysitting my niece, I made her try one bite of stew and she threw up all over her plate. So, for the past couple years, I've gone against ever fiber of my being and bought processed cold cuts and white bread for them to make sandwiches to eat along with the latkes. They are the guests, after all, right? I feel like I'm condoning this food by purchasing it. Why am I so tormented by this? It kills me to see them putting this junk in their bodies. Do I need to see a psychiatrist about this? :tongue_smilie: :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
