YABU. Maybe he is like me...I cannot BEAR people who "Mmm" during meals. It puts me off hugely.

Also, cook if you want to but to expect praise smacks of...something I can't put my finger on.

To be honest if someone is scraping every last morsel off the plate then nothing needs to be said, its obvious they are enjoying it.

i think thanking someone for cooking a meal is basic manners

soemthing like a roast which takes time and effort deserves a thanks at the barest minimum IMO

YANBU. He should show some fucking manners and gratitude. It's not too much to ask.

MammaTJ Sun 17-Nov-13 18:17:16

My DP always says thanks, as do my DC now. Only polite, imo!

Surely its good manners, when someone has cooked especially a roast to say something?

"that was lovely, thanks."

I would hate to cook a meal and not get any appreciation.

ICameOnTheJitney Sun 17-Nov-13 18:18:17

Saying thanks is different to saying "mmm" or commenting about how nice something is. Maybe he doesn't think it's that nice...maybe he's just starving...maybe he should be told to say thank you.

Chef should always be thanked even if its crap.

I'm sure your roast is not crap op.

Why especially a roast? You bung it in the oven and a few hours later you serve it up. It's hardly difficult cooking.

But, yes, a thank you is the polite thing to do.

Yanbu op-I cook every mean in our house apart from when we have a takeaway. Dh has never once said thanks that was nice and quite often has been very crtiticalangry But he is a giant arse.

My dh always says thank you for every meal I make for him and if hes particularly enjoyed it he will say so. I don't think it takes much to say thanks that was nice! Yanbu.

HairyGrotter Sun 17-Nov-13 18:28:20

He sounds rude. I'd tell DP to shove it up his arse if he never thanked me for cooking a lovely meal. I wouldn't dream of not saying thanks myself! Do you not talk over dinner? We often converse, and mention the wonderful food, and not so wonderful food ha

Tee, a roast is a lot wolf work if you peek suds prepare two types of veg and make gravy frim scratch which O am happy to do for my family but would be very pissed off if they didn't say thanks and that it was lovely, whether it was or not ;-)
It's just manners to show your appreciation and most people I know would do the same. Scraping the gravy isn't good enough :-)

MysterySpots Sun 17-Nov-13 18:36:23

Bloody ph

MysterySpots Sun 17-Nov-13 18:37:15

Gah phone
Just to be clear I don't roast actual wolves

Fairylea Sun 17-Nov-13 18:37:27

I also agree a roast is hard work... lots of prep involved and faffing about. Its not exactly pasta bake or frozen pizza is it? smile

MysterySpots Sun 17-Nov-13 18:38:03

Or peek at potatoes

MysterySpots Sun 17-Nov-13 18:39:04

Spuds! I'll get me coat

Tee2072 Sun 17-Nov-13 18:42:23

Sorry, I don't find any of that all that hard. Maybe I'm just that good.


sooperdooper Sun 17-Nov-13 18:42:25

A thank you I'd expect, but I don't think a roast is difficult really and I don't really get why you'd want a particular mmmm for it more than any other meal?
