Don’t tell him I told you, but my boyfriend can be a *bit * of a picky eater at times, or at least he was when we started dating 5 years ago. Nothing too spicy, nothing that sounds too strange or exotic, not too many vegetables or bold spices, nothing creamy white or overly saucey. All my favourite food traits! But I took well to the challenge of cooking dishes that he loved and that I could still make interesting and appealing to my tastes.
Things have changed now and I barely have to consider his previously long list of dislikes anymore, as he tends to eat almost everything I do, but every so often I try to appeal to his tastes and challenge myself with making something simple, delicious and undaunting. I consider it good practice for the day that I might have little ones and don’t want to feed them buttered noodles or chicken fingers for every meal.
