I’m sure I’ve mentioned it in previous posts but my boyfriend is one of those types that says he dislikes something … until it’s put in front of him. Tomatoes for one. He hates tomato sauces, marinara sauce, or any time I cook with diced tomatoes (which is often), but he only hates them until he eats them, then they’re “good” “decent” or “tasty”. Fish is the other one. He doesn’t like bland, tasteless fish but he doesn’t like super fishy fish either. Sole is a good midpoint so I made some tonight. When I told him what I was making, his response was “sad”. Really boyfriend? Sad? You’re sad that you’re coming home to a delicious home cooked meal? Huh, interesting. So, just to spite him, I cooked the fish in tomato sauce. It was delicious and I got a “tasty” out of the deal. He’s a master of mixed messages.
