    Picky-eater husband. HELP!

    I have a super picky husband. He is Indian so he grew up on rice and curry. Its safe to say he rarely ever eats Indian unless his parents are in town. He hates whole pieces of meat (wont eat steak or pork chops) because of a childhood incident. I have been doing my best to make things we all can eat, instead of two or three separate dishes for dinner, but I'm having a super hard time with it.

    He doesn't want to eat meat, pasta or rice dishes for every meal.

    I grew up eating a 'slab of meat' (as my hubby says) with two veggie sides, bread, and salad almost every meal. I eat almost anything besides cooked spinach and ground goat. icon_wink.gif

    So I thought maybe you guys could help me out. Any advice would be super helpful.

    What else is there besides slabs of meat, pasta, rice or veggie sides?

    Thank you all!!!

    Welcome to the site, Zeneca. It's very nice to meet you! icon_smile.gif

    You'll get a much wider response if you post this query in our Recipe Request forum here:

    It's not clear if he doesn't eat Indian frequently because he doesn't like it or if it's because he doesn't get it unless his folks are in town. I can recommend these very highly rated, tried-and-true recipes:

    Thanks! I will definitely try these! I've actually already done the Bourbon Chicken one and he really enjoys that one.
