1) Baby carrots sauteed in butter (lots of it) then add brown sugar to it and cook the carrots a little longer in the butter/brown sugar mixture. I hate cooked carrots but I will eat these.

2) What about eggplant parmesan or something like that?

3) Tell him that you HAVE to bring something, but that HE'S making it so he'll eat it and he better get his butt into the kitchen. You'll be happy to go to the store and get him what he needs, but he's in charge of making it. Maybe then he'll realize what a task this is and stop being so fussy.

simple solution:


Make him cook.


we have a rule here, "If you dont' speak up when I ask what you have for ideas when i'm making out the monthly menu then you either eat what i put in front of you or go hungry."

I'm MOM, not maid, not short order cook

You're much nicer than I am, if they don't like what's on the table, dinner's over. Yep, eat it or leave.

However, having said that, a guy we consider to be one of our best friends won't, can't, eat tomatoes. Craziness, but I cater to him.

None of us like turkey, so we're having our son's FIL's handmade gnocchi, they're ethereal, lighter than air, marvelous. He's making two sauces, I'm making dessert.

Will he eat a squash where you cut it open and bake it then add brown sugar?
What about rice?
Pumpkin Pie??
We always have a vegetarian Thanksgiving too, will he eat a Tofurky? They come in a box with some other fixin's and you just follow the directions. Not my favorite but my husband and daughter love it.

Not sure about the squash, but definitely rice and pumpkin pie! We were living off of rice burritos for a while there when money was super tight...lol

lol...Well, I ended up making this stuff called Pickled Mostaccioli...Earlier in the month, I asked my mom if she thought that would be Thanksgiving-ish enough but she said she thought it would be too summery as it's a cold dish so that's when I tried finding other recipes...Then, right before Thanksgiving, she found her menu from last year and saw that I brought it then so she then decided it would work...lol...Thank you everyone for the recipes, I've added them to my recipe stash!!

Oh, and the Pickled Mostaccioli is: cooked mostaccioli noodles, diced cucumber and onion, salt, pepper, garlic, vinegar, sugar, pimentos, parsley, yellow mustard, and Accent...It's sooo good...If anyone wants the recipe, let me know!!
