I am the meal maker in the family and so far my success rate has not been that good.

I have made a few meals from the board. My husband is not a big fan of chicken, doesn't care much for Asian cuisine, and has been told to steer clear of tomatoes. He is also just plain picky! (Odd thing; the only meal that as made it to the "you can make this again" status is the Yakisoba chicken)

Upon the suggestion of a co-worker (I think he has celiac) we are trying to also avoid MSG and maltodextri (I think it something like that). I wasn't aware that the broth had MSG in it and dh didn't seem bothered by it, but the more I can do to help the better we both feel.

We are trying to gently drastically change our diet. Going from beef as the main part of the evening meal 5-6 nights a week to nixing it is not an easy task.

Now for some whining, as a wife and mother, cooking is one of the areas that I earn my gold stars, so to be having meals that are not appetizing (+/or filling) is a bit of a blow.

I want to be able to support my husband and encourage him in making this change in his diet. But when your daughter and husband look at the meal that liked good on paper but doesn't smell or look good in the pot, the local fast food joint is really tempting.

I just need to get a better score.

Wife to a teriffic husband. Mother to 6 awesome kids.
