how do you feel if people don't try your food?

Please help me with a really silly issue!

I made a lot of food at the weekend for a large family do. All went down well. But my mum mysteriously didn't touch any of my quiche. For some reason I feel really miffed inside she didn't at least try a small slice. She eats quiches she buys from her local farmer's market, so I know she likes them. And if I didn't try something she made, she would make sure I felt guilty about it! I asked her twice if she'd like some, and each time she politely declined (before helping herself to something else).

I know I am being ridiculous and I am pregnant so probably hormonal. Please stop me from thinking about this non-issue!

Maybe she wasn't feeling great so didn't fancy something so eggy? I'm sure it was lovely.

I keep meaning to make one, now i really fancy some grin mm...quiche...

Was there something in it she doesn't like?
I'll eat anything pretty much, but wouldn't try rice pudding or anything with large bits of celery in or red jam as I know I hate them.
Saying that I'd have taken some and disposed of them to make you think I'd tried.

depending on mood, I either ask if everything is alright or if I can get them something else. In other moods, I want to force feed them grin

I wouldn't take it personally, maybe she was just having an off day. sometimes you just don't fancy what's on offer smile

Am laughing thyme, I think that was my mood at the weekend. Declared to DH yesterday that I am going to cook her quiche every time she comes from now on, just to make a point, but that is perhaps an overreaction smile

It probably wouldn't be bothering me so much if I didn't suspect that it's because she saw me unpacking a packet of jusrol a month or so ago (I do make my own pastry, but I also cheat when I am lacking time). I saw her take a few crumbs of the pastry, and it wouldn't surprise me if she was testing it out!!

But you're right, could have been any reason that she just didn't fancy it on that particular day. (tho I still reckon she could have forced down a polite slither!!)

I'll definitely stop thinking about it soon now grin

She did eat some of your food though, right? Maybe she just wasn't in the mood for quiche?

I'd chalk this one up to pg hormones OP. wink It's definitely not worth stewing over - you made what sounds like lovely food - it's your dm's choice whether to eat it or not!

Funnily enough I've just had this. I made my first ever cake for a parents' event at the school today. I made a chocolate cake, every bugger that sat down had a piece of non-chocolate cake. I went from having the hump to being really upset blush. When I went back into the hall after fetching dd1 from class there were only crumbs of it left so they either ate it or tipped it into the bin...

Glad it's not just me Gwendoline! (love the name btw!)

I bet they were all just waiting for someone else to make the first move on the naughty cake - I'd opt for chocolate over non-chocolate cake every time smile

Definitely pregnancy hormones, presuming she ate something.
It sounds like the Jewish mother jokes where she buys her son two ties, he wears one and she says to him "you didn't like the other one?"

Gwendoline, I bet they were all doing that bloody annoying, 'ooh, must be good, must not eat chocolate', thing, and then scoffed the lot when no one was looking.

GwendolineMaryLacey Tue 16-Apr-13 17:36:39

Possibly. The dry old coconut loaf cake that even my 15 month old rejected went down quick enough.

My theory is that my cake really needed a fork, so possibly not the best idea for a school coffee morning type thing. I did see one boy covered head to foot in chocolate grin

GwendolineMaryLacey Tue 16-Apr-13 17:37:29

Or my cake was shite...

bunchofposy Tue 16-Apr-13 17:47:09

Definitely would have been a fork issue Gwendoline. They'd have been worried they would end up like the sticky boy! And I don't think you can go wrong when chocolate and cake is involved smile

And just to clarify, yes she did eat the things I made for dinner, but quiche was the only homemade thing on offer at lunch - where she ate what she had brought (and fished for us all to compliment) (perhaps I'm just turning into her!!)
