Is it just me, or did someone actually forget to send the memo warning young people that one of the BIGGEST changes that comes after marriage is your new husband’s tastebuds!
Suddenly this man, the one who used to be your boyfriend, who got promoted to fiancé and finally reached hubbyhood- that same man who would be able to pick any darn thing off a restaurant menu and CLAIM to absolutely “LOVE” it- his tastebuds become HIGHLY SENSITISED after you put that ring on his finger!
The moment you say “I do”, is the moment he says “I don’t” to your cooking!
Guess what baby girl- he FAKED IT!!!
Every single time that man ate a meal you cooked him prior to marriage, and stated that he “LOVED IT”- he LIED!!!
He didn’t love your cooking!!!
He loved the thought of you cooking.
Just like all those times you went and ordered food from a fancy restaurant and he claimed he “LOVED” that too, he didn’t love it at all!!!
He loved the concept of eating nutritious food, but deep down inside his belly he was thinking about his Mama’s chicken curry!!!
Let me fill you in on a little secret:
That new age health food restaurant you take him to every week? The one you assume is ‘your place’, your ‘hangout’, the one special place that you two can go to and enjoy a meal without feeling guilty about the calories?
Girl you’re the only one feeling it!!!
Back To His Mama
Your man is going to go back home to his Mama and enjoy a proper home-cooked meal with her right after he finishes up having dinner with you.
Now, at first it might feel like he’s cheating on your food with his Mama’s meals, but it’s not like that at all.
I think it’s a common misconception that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but girl, unless you can cook exactly like his mother your cooking isn’t even close to his heart!
See, men want the reassurance that their soulmate can cook, but unless you can recreate his mother’s soul food, there’s going to be drama.
Here’s What To Do
Avoid marital indigestion, cut the crap and just sus out how much of a culinary genius his mother is right from the get-go. Because if she can cook, you’re in a world of strife if you can’t, because fussy children are one thing, but until you’ve had a fussy husband, you don’t even know what “fussy” means!
God speed with your cooking skills, and may you find yourself a life partner whose mother can’t cook!
In fact, to make life easier for my children’s partners, I refuse to complicate my children’s tastebuds or cook anything excessively challenging.
My children will grow up with basic tastes, all my recipes are written down and they cook with me so you know it’s basic if a child is helping to create it.
Future partners of my children, you’re welcome!
… I could never really cook anyway, but my children don’t need to know that…
