dealing with food-related comments

<< < (2/8) > >>

bopper:
"More for me!"
or
"And you are commenting on  my food because..."'
or
"Don't worry, I won't make you eat any."
or
"You said that out loud, you know."

Hmmmmm:
Response to an "ewww gross" to me will be met with a raised eyebrow with a bemused look and a "Excuse me, did you just call my lunch gross?" Then a short laugh, a shake of the head, and a return to my lunch.

LadyJaneinMD:
I usually come up with 'I don't recall asking for your opinion on my food'.   
Coldly.  Very coldly. 

nayberry:
i tend to take a bite bite and make yummy noises :)  and if they persist reply with "did i offer you any? no? then stop commenting on it!"

Phoebelion:
When DH's close and extended family visit, it's usually for the weekend.  They are from rural areas.

He always tells me "Don't cook wired stuff".  About the fifth time, I asked him what weird stuff I cooked.

His answer - lamb stew, cheesy garlic biscuts, waffles, bruschetta, steamed veggies, ya know, weird stuff. 

And yes, I have had his family turn up their nose at the cheese garlic biscuts.
