August 28, 2009: Mr. H is a Butt-Head!
*Second post today, scroll down for the first one.
I forgot to mention earlier that Mr. H is a butt-head. Remember the lovely butternut squash that I baked this week? Well, I made a "pumpkin" pie from the leftover squash. It was a lovely, delicious pie. Even better, I thought, than the ones I made with the pumpkin. Mr. H took one slice and won't eat any more. He says it tastes like squash. It doesn't......if he didn't KNOW it was squash, he wouldn't have known the difference. I had a couple of slices, and I gave half a pie to my neighbor, Pat. She said it tasted just like pumpkin pie to her. Mr. H will be real lucky if he gets another pumpkin pie from my kitchen anytime soon.

Poor Mr. H in the doghouse-LOL!ReplyDelete
But, if he's like most husbands , he has some cute pouty thing he does, and next thing you know you'll be in the kitchen making him a pumpkin pie. Men! No matter how naughty they are, they know all the tricks to get back in!
Just happened to come across your blog in a link. :o)ReplyDelete
My mama taught me the importance of never, ever letting anyone know what is in a food until it has been eaten. (And sometimes then she'd still keep it a secret!)
Glad your neighbor enjoyed her pie!
All the more for you!!! And me. I'll be there shortly.ReplyDelete
Cukes grown out of waste baskets huh? They are obviously pleased with their residence, good thinking Grannie!
LOL That so sounds like my husband. Not that he would ever eat pumpkin or butternut pie, but he is so picky about what he eats. He always wants it the way his is used to it.ReplyDelete
Sounds like Mr.H is in trouble. If that shed wasn't so nice you could have sent him there for the night, hehe. I bet your squash pie was great. Although I have not tried butternut pie before I have heard it is a better substitute for pumpkin.ReplyDelete
I have SOOO "been there and done that" with my husband on things. What is wrong with these guys?ReplyDelete
i've been there! john doesn't like mayo (and that carried over to not liking the vegan mayo that i use, though he never gave it a chance), but he'll love the dishes i put it in until he finds out that i used it. then he'll refuse to eat the rest. now i say, "i don't care. more for me!" but really it gets on my nerves! i call him worse names than butt-head under my breath...ReplyDelete
Kelli, so did I, but I try to keep my blog "family friendly". LOL!!!ReplyDelete
LOL! Somewhat comforting to know my hubby isn't the only butt-head. Doesn't make it any less frustrating, though.ReplyDelete
Ouch! Mr. H really blew it this time. Ha!ReplyDelete
I never, ever tell until after. Seriously, if they want to then tell me they "didn't like it but just ate it," that's their problem.ReplyDelete
Butternut squash pie sounds pretty wonderful to me, but then I'm partial to them.
Poor Mr. H, I hope being a butt-head was worth having to give up pie for months now! 0.oReplyDelete
BTW I made apple pie yesterday and didn't peal it. I didn't tell my husband because he would not have eaten it then. He ate it and then had a second piece. Shhhhhh!ReplyDelete
Daphne, my lips are sealed ;-)ReplyDelete
Granny - I'd make sure to slip a squash in every pumpkin pie from here on out if I were you and let it be your dirty little secret - LOL. Farmer B says he can't eat onions because they give him heartburn. I sneak onions in the food periodically without telling him and oddly sneaked-in onions do not cause heartburn. Did you know this? LOL - only "announced onion" cause heartburn. I should tell a doctor about this. It has to be valuable medical knowledge.ReplyDelete
Kate, if I'd known the man wouldn't eat squash pie, I'd have left him years ago ;-)ReplyDelete
I think you have something there. Patent that thought! I know I could mix that squash half and half with pumpkin, mark the bag "pumpkin", and there is NO WAY Mr. H could tell. Actually, I'm quite sure I could mark a bag of squash "pumpkin" and he'd not be able to tell the difference.
LOL Granny. Someone should write a book about Wifely Food Deception. I'm sure wives all over the world sneak "forbidden" foods into their husband's dinners without them knowing. LOL.ReplyDelete
