I ended up not going shopping as expected last night because we took dinner to my MIL's house. She's been sick and we wanted to tempt her to eat, but she hates my cooking. So we picked up $60 worth of "dinner to go" from the market - there were eight of us, so not too bad, I guess - and went over there.

So I still have that chicken, which is roasting right now, and we'll have that tonight (with dry-roasted okra, roasted diced potatoes, and homemade applesauce). Over the weekend I made bean soup so we'll have that tomorrow and half will go into the freezer. The rest of the week will be:

Wednesday: garlickly beans, kale and pasta (trying a new corn pasta - keep your fingers crossed!). This is a basketball night so I appreciate that this cooks very quickly and is a complete "one bowl" meal.
Thursday: falafel in pitas with lemon tahini sauce, shredded veggie salad
Friday: Nachos (tortilla chips smothered in taco meat, cheddar cheese, salsa, homemade pickled peppers, diced black olives)
Saturday: Pork chops, saurkraut, glazed carrots, socca
Sunday: the guys are going skiing, so my daughter and I will make some cajun shrimp pasta as a treat (my son and husband both hate shrimp - crazy!)

How do you know she hates your cooking? Did she tell you or tell your DH?

I wonder if my inlaws hate my cooking too cause I bring food over there sometimes for their freezer yikes! (MIL is sick)

She's never said anything directly, but has made comments over the years that are pretty indicative of her feelings. For example, a while back she mentioned that she'd been craving "a nice rice pilaf" and hadn't had one in a while. So I made her a pilaf using a recipe my grandmother always used - toasting the rice, diced veggies and so on - and brought it to her as a surprise. She brought the whole casserole back the next day uneaten because it was "too different from Rice-A-Roni" (which is what she'd really had in mind).

Our tastes are just different, that's all. I've learned that when I cook for her I need to really tone down seasonings, use canned veggies over frozen or fresh, and stick to convenience boxes. It's how she was raised and isn't likely to change at this stage of her life, so when we take food for her it's either supermarket takeout (which she likes) or something like Chick-Fil-A, and Red Lobster for special occasions.

We changed our mind on dinner. We ended up having leftover chicken and dumplings. My mom has the cold I had last week and it was the only thing that sounded good to her. I am going to make up the breakfast casserole tonight to have tomorrow for dinner.

Awww man, she brought the whole thing back to you and you did so much to make it for her. I would have given you back an empty dish. But I guess in a way, she did you a favor. You won't spend all the time to make things for her and then have it thrown away or returned. What an awful feeling that must have been. Yeah, stick with take out for her LOL

Now, I wonder how I'm ever going to find out if my inlaws eat my food LOL

Sat - http://www.plainchicken.com/2008/04/...casserole.html But I will double the recipe.
Sun - I think we're going to inlaws
I think I'll try the cheesy chicken casserole tomorrow, as I have the ingredients on hand & I still have no menu for the week! I just finished making 3 batches of bars for dd12 to take to school for her half birthday, so dinner was scrambled eggs, toast & oj.

I so hear you! We have lived with my mil since her husband left and it's great now but food is one area that is till touchy. We ave way different tastes and it's really hard to please her. She enjoys plan bland food. For instance she will only eat canned green beans not fresh and carrots for veggies. Which Akers it hard my my dd's to eat veggies cause if mammy won't try it they don't see why they have too.
Another time I made pulled pork and she tried it bt she actually spit it bak out into her napkin at the table
I've learned now if I make Mexican lets say I always grill her a pain chicken breast.
Oh well gotta roll with life
