not to let DH eat the crumble?

whilst getting the apple crumble out the oven this evening I dropped the le cruest dish on the stone floor sad. The dish split in three big pieces, half a dozen smaller bits and a lot of tiny shards.

My DD1 is happy, she'd vocalised to great length how she did n't want crumble but DH insisted that the crumble would be unaffected by the surronding pottery explosion and could be scooped from the floor.

I said I'm gonna up his life insurance before I'll let him eat broken glass.

AIBU for putting the broken dish and crumble in the bin. DH thinks so, he was siting 6 metres away, on the far side of the table when accident happend and won't budge from his initial assessment that it would be ok to eat.

YANBU but he doesn't surprise me. My DH would still eat apple crumble if the cat had pissed on it.

YANBU. I wouldn't risk DC eating tiny shard for sake of crumble.

Thing is this is why we use plates if he starts eating off the floor I'm gonna have to start washing it.

I wouldn't let him, he might be full of bravado now but imagine the moaning if he's ill! And he'll blame you.

My DH says that if I told him not to eat a crumble that had been on the floor like that, he would ignore me and eat it anyway.

I however, would not be able to do anything but drink a large glass of wine to get over my dismay at breaking a much loved oven dish.

Just checked with my DH and he too would eat the crumble. With a spoon, on his hands and knees if necessary.

My sympathies on your le creuset.

DH will eat pretty much anything and would probably have eaten at least the top bit. In his defence though he has never been ill/injured as a result of eating something i have rejected.

Thankyou for your responses, DH is still in a strop, I'm toasting the loss of my beloved cookware with a G&T.

My dh would do the same. Our cats regularly bring in whole cooked chickens through the cat flap and he suggests we eat them even when I remind them they have probably been dragged through several gardens. He also went on and on about eating a pigeon they caught even when we put it in the bin and went out in the car he spent the whole journey saying it's only been in the top of the bin I am sure it will be fine and I do love pigeon breast salad. Yuck yuck yuck men are weird and revolting!

My cat used to bring me leaves. I didn't eat them though.
