Speaking of beans, as you already know I just came back from 3 days at my s/DD's helping her with the new baby. DD abhors beans of any kind and she and her family are NOT healthy eaters. Everything in her frig and pantry was full-fat and processed. I was so saddened by it. I did the best I could fixing meals and preparing foods to freeze but her frig and freezer was already packed full of junk and I was limited in what I could make.

Anyway, back to the subject of beans, I brought my pc with me, Sass's book and a whole cart full of ingredients. I'd forgotten she won't eat any beans or legumes, so it made it doubly hard to find things she would like. I had planned on making 12 bean soup, chili, split pea soup, veggie soup and risotto. She read the book and wasn't thrilled with any of the recipes. Also, the weather was heating up into the mid-eighties so the combination of her apathy and heat won out of my best-laid plans. Oh well, I did make her my MexPie and SoyChorizo rice and that went over well.

I understand what you are saying about eating alone. My dh is in on my dietary plan and ds will eat anything (He's a teen-aged goat). 13yod is more particular and eats about 25% of what I make. *Sigh* I'm working on it.

Just keep cooking away and have them humor you by at least taking a bite out of everything. Freeze extra portions for yourself for those inevitable times when you can't bear to cook another meal.
