DH has invited FIL and SMIL over for Easter dinner.
Well FIL called this morning and he has decided that what I am going to prepare for Easter Dinner. Unfortunately it is not what I am planning. We also will have other guests as well.
When I told him that we already have the menu planned he got mad and told me that since he was the "head of the family" he had the right to set the menu for all family dinners. I told him to talk to his son abut it.
I was under the impression that the hostess set the menu for the dinner after taking into account any food issues. Or have I been wrong on this for years.
That would never fly in my home. I would have said, "Well then, YOU plan the menu, buy all of the food, cook it, serve, and clean up, because this lady is not doing it."
But then, I bet he doesn't do anything but sit on his butt at the gatherings, like at my DH's family gatherings, right? Typical "men work sooooo hard", so they don't have to cook, clean or watch their own kids.
I absolutely hate family gatherings because of those issues. If I wanted to spend several hours chasing our toddler and middle autistic son, serving food and cleaning up, I would have stayed home.
