    Example, when I stay at my Grandma's she'll sometimes make stew and dumplins or something with this disgusting flakey steak.

    I always eat it though, despite not liking it much, just out of courtesy

    Yep, happened to me once.

    The girlfriend, as wonderful of a cook as she is, made a pie with the hardest, blandest, most impenetrable pastry I've ever witnessed. Kevlar would have been easier to tackle.

    I somehow ate some of it, but then realised that she may want to cook it again; that took SOME egg-shell walking to voice to her, believe me.

    I don't exactly hate stew, but I'd rather not have it but if it was physically something I don't like (although they know most things I don't like) say cheese and mushrooms than I wouldn't eat it, unless they want sick everywhere after

    If I can force it down I will, parents taught me it's rude to leave food on a plate, not to mention wasteful. But some things I just can't handle the taste without gagging, so I'd have to politely decline.

    I know exactly what you mean. I find myself in this situation very often. Someone cooks you food that you simply do not want to eat. But I still try to eat at least some of it, maybe not all of it. I don't like carbs, I'm interested pretty much only in meat...but my stepmum prepares a HUGE, MASSIVE amount of carb-rich foods...and I'm like...:no::nooo: . I don't mind eating it, but she prepares it in such enormous quantities, I feel bad only being able to eat small portions, she expects me to stuff my face and I just can't do that. But I still have to eat it

    Yeh I get that, like I only want to eat mostly meat but as I don't have a job to buy the meat I can't exactly demand them to buy bulk meat, and some things my mum or grandma make is just no meat at all and it's like ugh

    How does she feel, does she get upset? I wish I could just say no.

    Sadly virtually everything my mother in law makes - she is the world's worst cook. Her speciality dishes include over boiling all veg until they wilt. Baked potatoes that are burned. Her made up flan called oat flan bake - which is hideous - tastes like how I imagine sawdust would taste. Grated carrot mixed with raisins. I eat it out of courtesy because it would look terrible if I didn't. I had to shell out £31 for lunch with her the other day to avoid her cooking me lunch.

    She doesn't really care, she knows I don't like certain things - she'll just tell me to make something for myself if I get hungry

    lmao all this is common courtesy. You can't tell the person that made the food that it sucks! No way, you just eat it now and puke later if you want to or just pop a chewing gum after you eat it

    My wife's grandmothers both make some really bad food. I try my best to eat as much of it as I can but sometimes it doesn't matter how hard I try it just won't go down (I'm not a fussy eater at all btw) :yucky:
