I hope this post is allowed.
I'm a bit stuck in a dinner rut, my husband is a very 'selective' eater (I am too but I'm more open to foods). Our basics revolve around beef and chicken and the same recipes get a bit boring. Anyone have any tips or recipes they could share? he's a no go on most vegetables so those are always side options (thank you everyone for these amazing ideas, looking forward to trying them)
So I (25) have a boyfriend (24) and the two of us live together in a very nice flat. I make dinner for my boyfriend everyday. He is a lawyer and I'm doing a PhD so I guess I have more free time than he does hence the dinner making arrangement. (Also I do like cooking so it isn't that much of a chore)
So earlier this year he got a new job and at first I was thinking "good on you". The increased income was what allowed us to move into our current flat and he seemed really happy with the work he was doing. Tuns out he was mostly working with clients who were landlords to help them with "troublesome" tenants. At first I would joke about him working for the bad guys but more and more often recently when he came home the stories he'd tell about what he was doing really did start to make him come across as the bad guy.
So at some point I thought I better confront him about this - ask him if he really does think what he is doing is right and why he wants to keep doing it. The first time I tr... keep reading on reddit ➡
I believe that having dinner together at home is a valuable opportunity to connect as a family. Furthermore, preparing the food at home allows me to be sure that what I serve is of good quality for my loved ones (taking into account their preferences like vegetarian, but also intolerances/allergies like glutenfree).
But as we all know time is scarce (esp. as a parent!) and preparing dinners for the family can be a struggle each week. I want to help us, to make cooking at home easier.
So i've started to create an app which helps with meal planning and shopping, which often held me back from cooking at home. I hope that with this app, it will get easier and more fun to cook at home, and by that having greater dinners with your family.
Want to be part of my mission and help me to fine tune the app? I would be more than happy to have people join me in my cause. I've setup a list where you can register here:

Hi my name is Hiro, a 28 year-old-guy, living inTokyo.
I want more people to know about Japan, so start a YouTube account.
Today, my wife and I made Japanese Gyoza. Gyoza is originally made in China, but Japanese people changed it to suit Japanese taste over the years. As side dishes, Fried rice and Rice vermicelli soup are prepared. Anyways, I recently purchased the shotgun microphone. It enhanced the quality of sound dramatically. Please put on earbuds and enjoy the comfortable cooking sound.
Since I was little girl I have always, and I mean always despised aubergine (eggplant) and avocados. I don’t know what it is about it but I absolutely hate the texture and taste of the two vegetables. I’ve never ordered not even ate any meal that contains it, and often tell people I’m allergic if forced to eat. The texture of the two vegetables makes my insides crawl and I would rather starve to death than eat it. My son and husband decided to cook dinner whilst I was busy in a conference call. Now my husband knows about my intense dislike for avocados and eggplant but unlike me, him and my son do not share the same opinion. My son loves avocado toast and eggplant lasagne, as well as my husband. When they have that for dinner I will make something else. Now for yesterday’s dinner my son and husband decided for something healthy and made aubergine pizza slices with avocado slices on top. They combined 2 of things I hate the most. Of course the issue arises when my son begs me to try the... keep reading on reddit ➡

My stepdaughter is 16 years old and is a new vegan. She’s been vegan since January, and her mom is also vegan. They are vegan for diet reasons.
They cook interesting dishes that I enjoy but I prefer to eat the things they eat as a side, NOT as a main meal. My wife is tiny and she doesn’t eat much to begin with and my stepdaughter also is very short and doesn’t eat a lot.
Last night was spaghetti and meatball night, they had vegan spaghetti and meatballs made out of what tasted like falafel tbh but it wasn’t to my taste at all and made me feel sick. It was the flavor and texture that was just wrong.
I prepared my own meatballs and my own marinara because I like to put butter in mine.
My stepdaughter and wife were eating theirs but being even more picky than normal cuz they both hated the flavor of their meal. My wife started laughing and told my stepdaughter they’d just order vegan pizza and call it a night since they both agreed it was nasty.
My stepdaughter said she wanted spa... keep reading on reddit ➡
For the last two weeks I’ve been staying with my boyfriend and his family at their vacation home (because it would be safer for us up here than back home in the Bay Area). His mother isn’t a bad cook but all she makes is stew, pizza, or burritos. Literally. She makes dinner maybe 3-4 times a week. Absolutely no variety in her cooking and my BF and his dad always complain about it. So lately I’ve been making dinner for them here and there. My mom always cooks something different everyday and her meals consist of a lot of meats/veggies so that’s what I’m used to. My boyfriend’s mother usually cooks canned food and it has been making me feel ill. So today we asked what she’s making for dinner and she said nothing. I said okay, we can make dinner. She snuck into her room and didn’t say a word. I ended up making pork chops, roasted carrots, and mashed potatoes. His dad went into their room to offer her food and she was on the phone crying. So he came out and ate with us instead. He then tel... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey all. So this is my first story on here that is squarely just a revenge. I honestly think it's a bit more pro than petty, but not really critical enough to go full nuclear, so here I am!
This story is one of how a lowly delivery driver got to royally irk a dispatcher, waste his time, get 4 hours of overtime, meal paid for, and a free beer. TL;DR below for your pleasure.
So I was a driver for a little company that rhymes with Slamazon. I had been there for several months by this point, and had developed a reputation of being very anal about vehicle maintenance. We aren't talking like washing them or whatnot, but cleaning out urine bottles, fixing broken wiper blades, installing lights to replace the burnt out ones, or other stuff that would indicate you actually remotely care for your driver's wellbeing. (Seriously guys, I had a van once with no working lights of any kind, and the passenger side door fell off its hinges right in front of my dispatchers, and they still sent me out)... keep reading on reddit ➡
