The freshly stuffed type you buy from M&S? We had an agreement that all meals would be freshly cooked. I take ages making each meal for him from scratch and have never given him pre-prepared or convenience food and bit annoyed she has.

oh yes she should have spent all night making fresh pasta with free range eggs and italian 00 flour.

Is this a joke?

KatyMac Fri 15-May-09 23:10:12

What nothing prepared?

What about beans or sausages?

Snippets Fri 15-May-09 23:10:19

why? Part of our agreement was freshly cooked food not pre-prepared crap.

Don't be ridiculous.

How would you feel if she had given him dried pasta?

Or do you make all pasta from scratch?

am assuming this is a piss-take?

A little bit unreasonable, I'm afraid. It's hardly Findus Crispy Pancakes (Disclaimer: I love them). And it's M and S, darling; how bad can it be?

Yes. If you want your CM to be making fresh pasta by hand rather than looking after her mindees then YABVU!

It was M&S fresh pasta not spaghetti hoops from a tin!

I think you should go one step further, buy a pasta machine and insist she makes the pasta by hand herself, using organic ingredients. And it should be boiled in dew collected by tibetan monks.

Has to be

Freshly prepared means not yesterdays reheated!

Snippets Fri 15-May-09 23:11:21

What about them? He's never had baked beans, if that's what you mean, and I woudldn't dream of giving him sausages.

FGS - if you are that precious get a nanny. There are much worse things to stress about than this - you have obviously had a very easy life so far. Lucky you.

I hope you harvested and threshed the wheat yourself. God forbid that you should use pre-prepared flour when making pasta

This is a wind up right?

oops I was too slow...

fryalot Fri 15-May-09 23:12:31

Actually, I think YABU. Does she have a strict list of foods she is allowed to feed him?

Do you actually expect her to roll her own pasta and stuff the ravioli herself?

It's not like it was a tin of ravioli or meatballs or something

How old is he and are there any allergy concerns?

KatyMac Fri 15-May-09 23:12:33

OK we live in different worlds

llareggub Fri 15-May-09 23:12:34

Very funny. This is a joke, right?

KingCanuteIAm Fri 15-May-09 23:12:37

I think you need to define freshly cooked, I would call M&S stuffed fresh pasta freshly cooked and fish fingers and oven chips or microwave lasgne pre-prepared crap.
