Coping with a picky eater

RE: Coping with a picky eater
Hey Janie,
That is such a hard situation, because I’m like you, I love food, and to see someone close themselves off to a new flavor experience is really sad. And it doesn’t help when you work so hard on a meal and he turns up his nose.
In my semi-humble opinion, there are 2 options.
One, which was the one I grew up with, was if you did not like what was served, you know very well where the kitchen is, please feel free to make something that suites your tastes, and if you forget to clean up after yourself there will be hell to pay.
Two is the Jessica Seinfeld option (you know that cooking for kids cookbook), which is look for recipes that disguise some of the possibly more offensive foodstuffs to get a little more variety in the menu.
If he persists, I would suggest laying in a supply of Banquet frozen dinners, they can be counted on to supply the requisite meat/potatoes/corn/green beans combination and make him happy. Then you can make what you like and he can still find a meal to his liking.
Good Luck!

Books got somebody writin' 'em and tryin' to entertain ya.
Life is more like a set of Legos.
Unless you take care of 'em, you lose a few pieces and you end up steppin' on 'em with bare feet.
You gotta take care of your life."
