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!
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.
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
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!!)
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 . 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...
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
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!!)
