To think I should be allowed to have a mushroom free meal?

(87 Posts)

I know it's petty but here goes.
I don't like mushrooms, never have. I'm 22+3 weeks PG and DH is cooking lasagne. He asked if he could put mushrooms in and I said if you absolutely must then can you chop them really small cos I really can't bear the texture. He just sliced them. I'm pissed off. I'm hungry, was looking forward to lasagne a d now I'm just going to be miserable and ungrateful that he cooked. AIBU or is he a selfish arse?

PS last night he put mushrooms in peppercorn sauce so I had steak with no sauce - which was fine with me...

I hate mushrooms; I would detect and pick them out at ANY size. I will never, ever eat them.

You are being a precious snowflake though, you can't be THAT fussy if you'll eat them if they're small enough to be hidden. That's just lazy.

And no, pregnancy is NOT an excuse to be princessy, it's annoying and nobody thinks it's cute or even acceptable. A woman also makes the decision to carry a child, it's not a 'favour' so no reason to behave as if it is.

mmm mushroomssss.

oops sorry, yanbu. why would anyone deliberately include something someone else hates?

Blardy mushrooms are in EVERYTHING. I am allergic to them (stomach cramps and vomiting) but I actually really like them sad

But if you don't like them, from the 2 dishes you described, he could have added them afterwards. I do this all the time for my mushroom-loving family.

He is a selfish arse, yes.

I agree with HollyBerryBush. Mushrooms go in bolognese and therefore they go in lasagne.

They also go in peppercorn sauce.

This is the LAW.

How can you add mushrooms to a lasagne after it's been cooked? Sprinkle them on the top?

Annunziata Fri 29-Mar-13 19:48:02

Mushrooms do not go in lasagne or bolognese!

I am Italian, so I win wink

HumphreyCobbler Fri 29-Mar-13 19:48:17

cantspel - no, I think your situation is different. People should be allowed to dislike some foods, I dislike sprouts intensely and I would not expect my DH to deliberately make food containing them.

fussy beggars should do their own cooking

YANBU I love mushrooms, DH hates them. I never cook with them!

dingit Fri 29-Mar-13 19:48:57

Yabu. He sounds like a really fungi.

ArtemisiaGentileschisThumb Fri 29-Mar-13 19:50:28

Yanbu! Mushrooms are the devils toe fungus and a pregnant woman should be able to dictate the menu. Ltb!

Okay maybe not ltb but def spit in his tea the next time you make one (which should be sometime after you have the baby because a pregnant woman should never have to make her own tea either)

littlepeas Fri 29-Mar-13 19:51:14

YANBU! I think if someone really doesn't like something then nobody has it. I love pesto, but dh hates it, so we never have it at home. I have it if he is away or when we go out.

ElphabaTheGreenAndBlacks Fri 29-Mar-13 19:51:57

As a vegetarian, I only have mushrooms in my lasagne - bechamel, pasta, garlic mushrooms, cheese, pasta, tomato sauce, repeat. Dee-lish-uss grin

An Italian would have a conniption at the idea of mushrooms in a meat lasagne sauce or bolognese, though.

Mumsyblouse Fri 29-Mar-13 19:52:22

I cut them bigger so my dd2 can pick them out, surely it's worse to have them chopped up finely?

Toasttoppers Fri 29-Mar-13 19:52:26

I like mushrooms but tell him he has committed a culinary crime putting them in a lasagne. He is also mean.

crashdoll Fri 29-Mar-13 19:54:34

If you eat too many biscuit you won't have mush-room for lasagne. Sorry! grin

whilewildeisonmine Fri 29-Mar-13 19:55:43

Maybe there's not mushroom in the fridge and he's trying to make space?

aldiwhore Fri 29-Mar-13 19:56:22

Always always ask for gross stuff (whatever it is) to be chopped BIG so you can take it out.

YABU for that alone.

YANBU to wish for at least one mushroom free meal every now and then.

mamij Fri 29-Mar-13 19:58:04

I love mushrooms!

Although wrong of your DH to deliberately put it in your meals when you dislike them.

And YANBU seeing as you're pregnant! And being pregnant rules over any mushroom loving husbands smile

Mushrooms are the devils food. They should be avoided at l costs YADNBU. He can have fried fungus on the side if he wants them THAT much.

Fortunately for me, DP hates mushrooms as much as I do

EuroShaggleton Fri 29-Mar-13 20:04:54

Surely it's better for him to leave them big so you can pick them out? That's what Mr Euro does (I like them, he doesn't; he cooks).

hugoagogo Fri 29-Mar-13 20:07:08

Mushrooms are disgusting, if he really wants them in the lasagne (which is WRONG by the way)

He could sprinkle them in the layers on one side only, or make individual lasagnes one with the evil little rubbery fungi and one nice one.

I love peas, dh hates them, therefore I don't put them in fish pies, or soups or curry even though I would like to, because that would be selfish and mean.

YANBU

YANBU. I hate mushrooms, my DH loves them. If he wants them, they will be cooked separately, it doesn't matter if it's me or him doing the cooking, we have an understanding about it! Similarly, he can't stand sweetcorn, so I won't ever put it in a meal for us to share.

Pozzled Fri 29-Mar-13 20:10:49

Oh, and cutting them into big pieces does NOT make it ok. They will contaminate the rest of the meal.

DragonMamma Fri 29-Mar-13 20:11:27

My DH doesn't like mushrooms. I do and I'm the cook so they go in whatever I want them to. I cut them big enough that he can pick them out easily. Simple.

Bue Fri 29-Mar-13 20:12:17

YANBU. It's just a bit rude to cook with an ingredient you know your partner actively dislikes, when it's mixed in and difficult to extract from the dish! DH actively hates a couple of foods that I love (peanut butter for one). It sucks that I don't get to make proper pad thai or peanut noodles for dinner, but I can have them on my own when he's not there. It would be pretty mean to make something I know he's not going to like.
