First time at the in laws for Christmas dinner. They served MUSHY PEAS as one of the veg. Grounds for divorce or AIBU?

We're they tinned nonsense or freshly made with fresh mint cos one isn't fit for rats the other is at least edible but neither have a place on an Xmas Meal.

Divorce is the only option

I suppose you are in the bathroom, sobbing and fuming over a ruined Christmas?

Nottalotta Sun 25-Dec-16 21:17:43

Ltb. Although this is the second thread mentioning mushy peas with Christmas dinner. .

I hope you stormed out of there straight away. The cheek of it!

mylittlephoney Sun 25-Dec-16 21:18:36

God that's just as bad as overlooking the sprouts. Bleugh......

msgilbertblythe Sun 25-Dec-16 21:22:41

They were tinned. @nottalotta at least I'm not on my own. Maybe it's a thing.

I quite like mushy peas, but it just wouldn't occur to serve them with Christmas dinner, I mean, there's just not the room!

The diiiirty bastards!

How very very wrong!

My husband makes pea purée with Sunday roast, didn't do it today but that is basically posh mushy peas, really nice veg side.

And here was me still feeling sad that I didn't get to eat any pigs in blankets today at the in-laws. Mushy peas!!!

My dd is breastfed and allergic to milk so I can't eat milk. So I couldn't eat the packet bread sauce thank god they usually have so I offered to make and bring some using almond milk for everyone. Nope, mil insisted they all have their packet bread sauce as apparently her 32 year old daughter loves it, she doesn't, so I bought my own little Tupperware for one of yummy home made bread sauce grin.

Could be worse. The first Christmas I was with DH MIL served fried mushrooms. confused

I love a fried mushroom. On a fry up. I was utterly bemused to find them on a Christmas dinner. MIL was most offended that I refused them (to be fair, I'm not very good at hiding my facial expressions) and has basically only just forgiven me six years later.

Andrewofgg Sun 25-Dec-16 21:35:20

Peas, mushy or not, should be part of every meal. YABU!

MouseLove Sun 25-Dec-16 21:35:27

Holy shit. Nope. It's almost as bad as tinned sweetcorn on a Christmas dinner. Shudders

And also... totally divorce.

CloudPerson Sun 25-Dec-16 21:38:50

Dh's family always serve mushy peas with christmas dinner (bachelor's quick soak peas).
Therefore we have to serve them when we cook a Christmas dinner. I avoid them.

53rdAndBird Sun 25-Dec-16 21:40:24

Mushy peas are fantastic. Send them round here and I'll swap you for sliced carrots.

TheSlaughterOfHerodificado Sun 25-Dec-16 21:41:00

Never mind divorce - it's grounds for murder!

Smilelikeyoufeelit Sun 25-Dec-16 21:45:36

I was behind a man buying mushy peas today in the garage! Maybe they were for your lunch 😂

BackforGood Sun 25-Dec-16 21:47:03

My first ever.....

Ltb wink

Well, DH is still horrified we eat pasta, reindeer and elk.

But still... from a tin?! shock

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sun 25-Dec-16 21:49:41

We are not having roast potatoes. We are having mash. No mushy peas but no pigs in blankets either. heathens

The diiiirty bastards!

This made me chuckle grin

Did they bleed into the gravy, OP? So grim.
