To think I should be allowed to have a mushroom free meal?

(87 Posts)

I know it's petty but here goes.
I don't like mushrooms, never have. I'm 22+3 weeks PG and DH is cooking lasagne. He asked if he could put mushrooms in and I said if you absolutely must then can you chop them really small cos I really can't bear the texture. He just sliced them. I'm pissed off. I'm hungry, was looking forward to lasagne a d now I'm just going to be miserable and ungrateful that he cooked. AIBU or is he a selfish arse?

PS last night he put mushrooms in peppercorn sauce so I had steak with no sauce - which was fine with me...

I LOVE mushrooms and my husband hates them. I don't out them in anything I'm cooking for both of us.. That's just common curtesy.

Ps I'm vegetarian and mushrooms are deffo not an animal ;)

My partner doesn't like cheese. Cheese for gods sake the weirdo.

I don't cook cheese in meals we eat together, and add it separately at the end.

Mushrooms are the snot of the devil. Vile, vile, vile. Even the smell of them is enough to make me retch. YADNBU. In fact offering to pick them out is far too accommodating. Next time eat them and vomit them back into his face. That will give him some approximation of just how disgusting the little blighters are.

Now, you see, I've had to go and look up mushrooms and muslims haven't I?

This is the mushroom thing:

Truffles, like mushrooms, fungi, and plants that have no roots, symbolize foundlings, natural children produced by adultery, persons of unknown origin, and those who cannot stand on their feet, or money that comes spontaneously and without effort, like a gift, a donation, a grant, or any sudden and unexpected source of gratification

However if you dream about mushrooms all manner of things will happen to you:

•A poor person collecting and eating truffles and the like: Will become rich.
• A rich person collecting and eating such plants: Will get richer.
• An ascetic person unearthing and eating truffles: Will come back to the pleasures of the flesh.
• Moving from one truffle field to another: Will undertake pleasure trips or move from one market to another or from one trade to another.

Holly that's it! The Muslim lady said she couldn't eat them because they are a parasite.

yanbu, it wouldn't kill him to make lasagne how you like. I'd do it for DH & I don't even like him very much.

Thanks for all the support. It's good to know there are other 'shroom haters out there.
Oh, for the record, I'm not princessey cos I'm pregnant but I do struggle with food making me feel ill more than when I'm not PG.
I'm also not passive aggressive and didn't get arsey with DH either.

YANBU. FFS, he knows you don't like them if they're left big (I like shrooms but I know what you mean about the texture), you asked him that if he HAS to include them in the meal to please chop them up small. How hard would it be either for him to leave them out or to cut the sodding things up small?! It's not rocket science is it.

I think as the other poster said upthread it's just plain rude to deliberately add a food he knows you dislike. Although he did ask and you did say yes, so you have to let him off this time.

I'm the same with onions, horrible slimy little things. Nobody ever cuts them small enough for me to tolerate, their version of 'small' is not mine! So now you know he will still cut them large when he adds them, next time he asks if he can add them you know your answer!

I'm a vegetarian and HATE mushrooms...this makes eating out rather hard as ALL vegetarian options WITHOUT FAIL have mushrooms in them...

My vegetarian lasagne has red lentils instead of mince....it's delicious grin

pick them out? Whats the problem.

GreenEggsAndNichts Sat 30-Mar-13 21:11:20

I dislike the texture of mushrooms, myself. I would be the same and could tolerate them if very small.

However, if I were asked, I'd say please leave them out. DH loves mushrooms, I do not, and he knows that. He doesn't like raw tomatoes, I try to keep them to a minimum. It's just courtesy isn't it?
