Spinach and ricotta cannelloni (from a packet) with salad. DP is furious. Says when he asked earlier what was for tea I should have said 'nothing'. There is also fish in the freezer but that takes half an hour so apparently is unacceptable at 8pm. I've had enough of his mood and gone upstairs with my half packet of spinach and ricotta cannelloni & he's ordered a take away!

No YANBU, he's being a tosser! I love spinach and ricotta cannelloni. If I were you I'd eat the other half as well!

The next time the answer is "I don't know, what are you cooking?"

He's "furious" because tea is either not to his exacting standards or not served 'on time ?? Does he realise it's not the 1950's anymore? Twat.

That's a perfectly lovely tea and we have the same about once a fortnight. Although I do add a tomato sauce too.

Tell your H he's cooking tomorrow.

If it's a ready meal version they are rather, um, slimy and bland.
But if it's not to his liking he could always stop being an arse and make something else.

Nicnak2223 Tue 10-May-16 20:44:58

Did you know he didn't like it?

CremeEggThief Tue 10-May-16 20:45:34

I'd love that! I bet he would have turned up his nose at the jacket potatoes we had too. YANBU.

He's in a huff because he still has work to finish for meetings in London tomorrow and 'how do I expect him to concentrate?!' with this inadequate meal. There's plenty of food in the cupboards to so he's unlikely to starve

chickenowner Tue 10-May-16 20:47:11

He knows where the kitchen is doesn't he?

My Dad used to behave like that towards my Mum, and even then, 20 years ago, we all laughed at him for being so old fashioned!

roleypoley Tue 10-May-16 20:48:57

Pretty sure he does like it just doesn't consider it substantial enough

TendonQueen Tue 10-May-16 20:49:26

Ah, 'nothing' = 'not the exact thing I felt like eating and expected you to know about telepathically'. I'd say 'nothing' every time he asks what's for tea for a while now.

Not really a dinner though. More of a crap lunch.

UmbongoUnchained Tue 10-May-16 20:51:57

That wouldn't be enough for me let alone my husband!

caroline161 Tue 10-May-16 20:52:44

God I'd be furious that my husband was furious about a meal. There are so many more important things that are worth being furious about.

roleypoley Tue 10-May-16 20:52:49

Excellent idea TendonQueen grin

MumOnTheRunCatchingUp Tue 10-May-16 20:53:32

I'd be happy with that!

Yellowsun11 Tue 10-May-16 20:53:47

Who's turn was it to cook ?i would be happy with it !

Seeyounearertime Tue 10-May-16 20:53:49

I would hand you notice in for the position of "head chef" if I were you OP.

OSETmum Tue 10-May-16 20:54:06

With no sauce? Tbh I'd find it very boring, sorry.

roleypoley Tue 10-May-16 20:56:38

& even if it's not the best meal in the world it's the behaving like he's going to starve that annoys me. If you're still hungry have a bagel or bowl of cereal or something after. He only has to open a cupboard to find food

I dare you to watch Shirley Valentine

The day her DH comes home and deems his tea inadequate (throws it on the floor, she cleans it up) strengthens her determination to escape, even if just for a holiday.

Watch it grin

willconcern Tue 10-May-16 20:58:39

Regardless of whether it's a decent meal or not, OP's DH is behaving like a sulky child. THAT is the problem.....

Scholes34 Tue 10-May-16 20:58:49

Nip that attitude in the bud now!

NapQueen Tue 10-May-16 21:02:13

Gosh that's my dh's favourite dinner! With sauce, baked with cheese on top and garlic bread

Tbh I'd not be bothering cooking for him any more purely for his ungrateful Ness.
