How do you get your husbands to eat that stuff?

Alright my roommate/husband is the pickiest eater known to mankind. Seriously. I know 4 year olds who eat better than he does. When we first started dating, it was the worst! Now, I will give him credit where much credit is due...he has grown his taste and will eat things he never dreamed of eating before. Like avocado...who hates avocado?

My first experience trying to get him to eat a healthy substitute, I tried sneaking it into a normal meal. I made spaghetti with meat sauce. Instead of ground beef, I used ground turkey. Oh the horror. I couldn't tell the difference, it didn't look any different. So when he came home from work I set it in front of him thinking I might just get away with this. After his first bite..."Mia, what is this? This is not beef." Oh ok macho man. Busted.

Well this got me thinking as I came across this post this week, how would I ever get my husband to eat that?! He would see the orange and the sauce and freak out! It's too bad, because it looks oh so delicious to me!

Well...I finally surrender and figure...this is what I have girlfriends for. My girlfriend Lindsay made me the most insane dinner this week. Hamburgers with smoked provolone, basil mayo and sauteed onions and mushrooms. For sides she had a cucumber salad with tomatoes, feta and red wine vinegar and soft homemade pretzels with pimento cheese. I was in heaven. 

Let's all go nudge her for the recipe!

Oh my gosh, that sounds/looks so delicious! And I agree - men need to eat better! I always try and trick Nate into eating something "healthier" and he never falls for it!
