He was shopping for New Year's Day dinner while I did the housework. There will be 7 of us for dinner, all adults. We are having steak with pepper sauce and steak pie. He bought four sachets of pepper sauce and 14 sprouts. When I asked why he only bought 14 sprouts his answer was "who eats more than 2 sprouts?" If you were going somewhere for dinner would you not expect to at least have the option of having half a dozen?

Sorry no words.......

Ooh I'd have all 14 love them!

14 sprouts still more than the poor woman who received one individual sprout wrapped up nicely in her online shop grin

I wouldn't want any sprouts with steak or steak pie tbh I just don't think they go together.

Men really don't think like women.

We had three families over for festive drinks and my dh bought a bottle of Buck's Fizz and two bottles of wine hmm. Well he knows I can drink a bottle of wine to myself so I don't know what he was thinking....

At least you have lots of sauce! grin

Just snorted tea down my nose at this, op!

TroysMammy Fri 30-Dec-16 13:47:00

Crikey I'd eat 14 myself.

That's really very funny. But maddeningly frustrating for you I should think!

I like the idea of rationed sprouts.

"One sprout? Or two?"

It's fine.

That is funny grin

They are magic sprouts of course.

If you throw them out of the kitchen window, by tomorrow morning there will have grown a giant sprout stalk.

Your husband can then climb to the top of it, where he may be able to see over the fence into next door's garden - and possibly though the shed window revealing Mr NDN's stash of vintage Fiesta and Razzle mags.

Steak with pepper sauce, steak pie and sprouts.

Is it me or is that a weird menu?

Userhousequestion31 Fri 30-Dec-16 14:00:13

Steak pie & steak?

Passmethecrisps Fri 30-Dec-16 14:00:23

Especially weird with just two sprouts on every plate. Sitting there like a pair of castrated bollocks

No it's not you Blacksocks

Fluffyears Fri 30-Dec-16 14:06:22

14 too many if you ask me. I'm a super taster and they taste vile to me, so bitter and horrid.

pipsqueak25 Fri 30-Dec-16 14:09:14

i don't get the sprouts with steak bit

MrsPeelyWally Fri 30-Dec-16 14:10:15

I think its a choice of steak pie or steak.

blueskyinmarch Fri 30-Dec-16 14:10:37

We are having steak wth peppercorn sauce for Hogmany dinner. I love sprouts but they don’t go with this dinner. We are having green beans and carrots.

Why steak plus steak pie? Bit weird!

Toast3 Fri 30-Dec-16 14:11:06

That's so funny....

HappyFlappy Fri 30-Dec-16 14:11:31

Me 'an all, WiMo.

I love sprouts, me! They are the Brassica of the Gods.

(<begins to drool>)

I would have no sprouts at all. they are Satans bollocks.
