I always cook the fucking dinner. Every night.
Dp kicks off over combination, makes me feel like shit.

AIBU to just not cook tomorrow --or ever again--and when he asks when dinners ready give him a blank stare grin or is that too petty?

I'd never cook again either OP .. but I'll always cut off my nose to spite my face.. grin

I'm interested to hear the combination before i comment!

He’s just come in huffing and saying ‘I didn’t eat the broccoli but I ate the rest.’

Hun, starve.

Combination of what, please, OP?

@kinkyafro
Literally a veggie crispy bake (which are delicious), new potatoes, carrots and broccoli with some gravy. Not like I gave the family a bowl of beans and ketchup ffs.

He doesn't like your food so cook for yourself alone. Let him sort himself out

It doesn’t sound petty to me!

PinkHeart5914 Fri 10-Aug-18 18:03:58

Depend what your dishing up I suppose? If it’s ice cream and broccoli on the same plate he should LTB

Medea13 Fri 10-Aug-18 18:06:37

Well, it sounds like the meal lacks protein. So that is a bit unreasonable -- a plate of just veg in various forms is not a meal.

My DP thinks my cooking is bland (granted... my forte is not in the kitchen, but I’m ok 🤷🏻‍♀️).

Now, he does about 85% of the cooking.

He is better at it though.

I think you deserve a break from 'wife work' op.

foodiefil Fri 10-Aug-18 18:09:31

Mmm sounds yummy

foodiefil Fri 10-Aug-18 18:09:59

Oh sorry, YANBU.

What was wrong with the combo?

Cook for yourself and don’t bother with him.

When he asks where his food is, reply simply oh I thought you decided you didn’t want me to cook for you. Then enjoy your meal and never cook for him again.

My DP doesn’t ever criticise my cooking even on the occasion when I’ve experimented and failed miserably and the food is unpalatable.

If you don’t like it cook yourself, is what you should be saying. Then stick with that. The only thing that would bother me is someone else putting gravy on for me.

He’s just come in huffing and saying ‘I didn’t eat the broccoli but I ate the rest.’

How old is he? 5? Are you suppose to reward him for eating dinner? confused

longwayoff Fri 10-Aug-18 18:23:21

Hmm. Hope u told him no pudding unless he eats the broccoli

Flyme21 Fri 10-Aug-18 18:24:39

Make him a star chart. Knobhead!

Gemini69 Fri 10-Aug-18 18:26:58

Make him a star chart. Knobhead!

PMSL... This grin

chuckiecheese Fri 10-Aug-18 18:27:21

I would cook enough for you both and he can choose whether to eat it or not. If he behaves like a child, treat him like one! wink

LeftRightCentre Fri 10-Aug-18 18:28:46

I wouldn't cook for him again.

MelbourneClown03 Fri 10-Aug-18 18:32:13

YNBU What a cockwipe

I would simply say tomorrow, "you don't like what I cook and I don't appreciate my efforts being poo-pooed by you, so paddle your own canoe"

I hate cooking and am not great at it but my DH is even worse. Literally if it was left to him we would all be either obese or malnourished. So I have a go and do the best I can. However DH has never once complained about any of my meals. I think he knows that as soon as he does that will be it. I will never cook for him again. Your OH is being VVU. Oh by the way thanks for the meal idea!

Rottweilers1 Fri 10-Aug-18 18:42:43

He’s just come in the bedroom and asked why I’m moody and when I’ve said you’re an ungrateful fuck I’ve had the response ‘if that’s how you feel’.

Ready to bung him out of the door tbh. Doesn’t realise how easy he has it.
