I have trouyble with my nerves and can only eat certain colour foods on certain days. My husband is getting fed up of this but I can't help myself. I want to show him I can cook decent meals even while sticking to the proper colour for the day. So what can I give him that goes with sweetcorn and smash, as today is a yellow day?

Poached smoked haddock would be lovely with sweetcorn and mash. Not sure my husband would be convinced on the certain colour thing either, surely its a bit hard long term?
Good luck

Chickpeas are not yellow enough, we have them on a brown day.

-Chicken soup
-Vanilla sponge
-Bananas in custard
-Advocaat (kidding it's horrid stuff)
- cheese omelette
- lemon fanta?
- white wine
- double cream vanilla ice cream

Oh dammit, I'm hungry now!

omelette is a great idea, thanks. Yes it is hard in the long term but we manage to get along mostly. Am nervous about next week as husband's boss is coming for dinner on Wednesday. I should be ok as Wednesday is usually a red day so have planned beetrrot soup, pesto with red cabbage and jelly and straweberry icecream for dessert. But someitmes I wake up and find it is a different colour to what I expected and then I could be in real trouble,.

Thanks for all suggestions.

Do you have synaesthesia?

PestoMonster Tue 13-Mar-07 19:29:23

Can you cheat with food colouring?

Eg saffron rice?

We have not had a blue day for 4 years thank goodness but it was Christmas Day 2002

My husband took the kids to spend the day with his mother

pollychrome Tue 13-Mar-07 19:30:14

Hunkermunker no I don't think they have it in tescos.
