Coping with a picky eater
(Thought maybe this would be a good spot for this thread since, technically, I am looking for tips and tricks!)

My husband is more of a picky eater than my 4-year-old. I love food. Anything. I'll try whatever and love to explore foods and taste different dishes and experiment with flavors. The husband grew up in a house where dinner was always: meat, mashed potatoes, green beans or corn. That was it. THAT WAS IT! And, that's what he's used to and that's what he wants. He'll eat pasta too but is picky about the kind of pasta (example, he won't eat spaghetti, only tube-like pasta). This drives me crazy. Even if I try and sneak some things in, like sautéing carrots or zucchini (chopped fine) and putting them into the spaghetti sauce, he'll say the flavor is off and won't eat it. His mom's spaghetti sauce was thinned down tomato paste. No herbs or anything. No flavor! And that's what's he used to.

Anyone else share my pain or have tricks, tips or ideas of turning a picky eater into someone who will eat more of a variety? I'm two meals away from losing it.
