I’ve been out of town for a little over a week leaving my husband to fend for himself in the cooking department, two more sleeps and I’ll be back in TO. After talking with him on the phone last night it might be just in the nick of time.
In a nutshell all he’s eaten for the past nine days is whatever he could find in the house. As of yesterday he is down to crackers (he found another package of RYVITA’s in the pantry) and peanut butter. To read about the other days click Day 1 Day 2 Days 3 & 4
I am happy to give a big shout out to what he ate on Monday. He picked the rest of the green beans in the backyard and then stir fried them. He even got all creative and added in some freshly picked grape tomatoes. The only problem was the green beans he picked were really old. I was actually letting them age on the vine so I could use the seeds next year, anyway – he did say they were sort of tough….
Which brings us yesterday – all he’s had is crackers and peanut butter, oh, and a glass of milk.
Throughout the past nine days (there was the weekend reprieve at our friend’s cottage and Michale’s fabulous cooking) he has dabbled in the veggie department but aside from juice there has been nary a piece of fruit in the mix. And all I can say is, “What the?” After eighteen years of eating with me, cooking with me, and being a part of three healthy cookbook testings with me, you’d think the guy’d been brainwashed in the health department to want to eat something that had a colour to it.
Not even my salad loving husband has ventured out past the pantry to eat a big mix of fruits and veggies.
Why didn’t he eat like we eat when I’m there?
I have no clue.
His eating habits went gone to hell in a handbag in less than a couple of days.
Is it eating alone that contributes to lousy eating habits? Have I have spoiled him beyond belief with all the fabulous food I make? (Insert a big pat on own back here) Or is it gender based? Women leave – men eat crap.
I don’t know, I have many theories, but no answers. Anybody? What do you think?
