To think 'arse' and 'bugger'

So, friend coming for lunch today. We organised it last week and she said she doesn't eat bread at the moment as it makes her feel bloated. Ok, thinks me. So I get out the freezer some pumpkin soup I made last week. She called this morning to confirm today is still on, and I said 'Oooh you like pumpkin soup don't you'. No she doesn't. In fact, she only likes to eat her home made leek and potato soup. Grr. Some fresh pasta in the fridge? No, again the wheat makes her feel bloated. Jacket potato? No. Too 'carby'.

FFS. WHAT THEN??! It's going to be a few bits of green salad at this rate. I can't 'nip' out and get anything as you can't 'nip' anywhere with a toddler and a baby and a sprained ankle.

Bugger and arse. And help!

Ask her to bring something in. She is being ridiculous.

Call her back and ask her to pick something up. If you could pop out I'd suggest getting a ready-roasted chicken and salad.

Tell her what you have and if she can't eat any if it would she be able to grab it on the way over as you can't go out.

eggs? maybe an omlette?

LRDtheFeministDragon Mon 05-Nov-12 09:34:20

She's low carbing, isn't she?

Have you got any meat in the freezer you could cook and serve cold with salad?

I'm judgy about people who're fussy. If she really minds what she's eating so much she should offer to bring something.

Yeah, just say that it seems you have nothing suitable in, so could she bring something with her as you're unable to get out before she gets there. I wouldn't be offended to be asked in similar circumstances. But then I wouldn't be so picky in the first place if going to a friend's for lunch confused

Yes as mummy suggests if she is on low carb she can eat eggs till they come out of her ears so go with the omelette.

Ask her to bring something

I don't like soup. I eat most stuff though just not soup (and can't eat fish though I like it) I do t think people's aversion to soup is odd

Woofsaidtheladybird Mon 05-Nov-12 09:48:46

Omelette a possibility. Might call her and tell her to bring summat. Warm chickeny thing sounds good but I'd have to drive to tescos and can't drive v well at moment due to the amazing technicoloured swollen ankle angry

See, if I 'do' a lunchy thing, it's either soup or warm ciabattas stuffed with lushness (hams or mozzarella and avocado for eg)

DH says fish fingers. We have plenty of those smile

Woofsaidtheladybird Mon 05-Nov-12 09:52:54

Ah ha. Chicken breasts in the fridge. Fresh salad. That's doable I think!

I hope it's free range chicken wink

do not inflict your faddy diet on your friends - BYO if necessary.

Woofsaidtheladybird Mon 05-Nov-12 10:07:44

Oh bollocks. She might not eat meat. That rings a bell...angry

IwishIwasmoreorganised Mon 05-Nov-12 10:09:50

Tell her lunch is off for today in that case.

JackThePumpkinKing Mon 05-Nov-12 10:13:45

You've got a busted ankle and you're running around after your friend who's coming for lunch? hmm

SHE should be the one cooking the food and bringing it over grin

IWipeArses Mon 05-Nov-12 10:13:51

If she doesn't eat carbs or meat, then she's nuts. Have you got any nuts?

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 05-Nov-12 10:15:40

What on earth does she eat?! And I thought I was a bit picky :/

DawnOfTheDee Mon 05-Nov-12 10:15:50

Your first mistake was telling her what was on offer...grin

HeadlessForHalloween Mon 05-Nov-12 10:17:32

Just do the omelette! Low carb and veggie. And if they aren't free range, chuck the box and lie grin

LadyClariceCannockMonty Mon 05-Nov-12 10:20:02

I hate fussiness. 'she only likes to eat her home made leek and potato soup.'

She can fuck off home and eat her own soup on her own then.
