She Hated Her Mother-In-Law’s Cooking, but When She Finally Told Her, Things Took a Turn for The Worse

A pregnant young woman recently wondered if she was wrong for telling her mother-in-law that she didn’t like her cooking. They were from different cultures and this caused a huge rift in the family. Here’s what she had to say.

Their Different Cultures and Different Tastes

She and her husband were from totally different places. They each grew up with their own way of doing things. The biggest challenge for her? Adjusting to the food from his side. They had their own tastes and dishes, which was a whole new world for her.

She Didn’t Like Their Food

To be honest, she just couldn’t get into the flavors. Some of the combinations felt odd and just lacked the zest she was used to. And her mother-in-law had this weird thing for using mayo in places you’d never expect – like on a tortilla pizza of all things!

To keep the peace, she’d dodge eating the food her mother-in-law cooked. Whenever food was offered, she’d come up with a reason to pass on it. She wanted to be nice and didn’t want to upset anyone, especially family.

Then one day, she invited her mother-in-law for dinner. Naturally, she got an invite back for the next day. Her hubby broke the news and asked her to go, even though she wasn’t keen on the idea. Normally, she’d just grin and bear it for the sake of family, but this time was different.

Because here’s the thing: she was expecting a baby! And she was in that early phase where just about anything could set off her stomach. So, eating food she already wasn’t fond of? Not a great idea.

Her husband seemed cool with all the different dishes because he grew up eating them. But even her own family noticed the unique flavors. Like that one time her mother-in-law made pasta and the sauce tasted like someone dumped a ton of ketchup in it.

Confused and needing advice, she had a chat with her mom and sisters. They told her to just be straight up and talk about it. So she did. She told her mother-in-law about the whole being pregnant and sensitive to certain foods thing. She even threw in the idea of sharing some recipes from her side.

But things didn’t go as planned. Her mother-in-law got super upset. She said she was done cooking for her and called her ungrateful. And then she told her son, who wasn’t too pleased either.

So now her husband’s a bit miffed. He thinks she should’ve just kept quiet and not rocked the boat. And because of this whole mess, her mother-in-law isn’t too keen on inviting her over.

One person said, “We can all agree that what you did was rude but what would have been better? No one has provided a solid solution other than suck it up.”

Another person said, “I mean, you called her up to tell her that her food sucks. You wouldn’t be offended if she did the same thing to you? If she was like “The food you make is really unfamiliar, and I honestly can’t stomach it at all” wouldn’t you be offended too? I would be.”
