I mentioned in a previous thread that my husband keeps referring to my cakes with fondant on them "fondue" cakes, well my 4 year old son just asked me if he could eat the "vomit" off my cake, apparently yet another name for fondant!! He is a HUGE fan of Wilton fondant, YUCK!!!!

Gotta love the kids. They have unique names for everything.

Too funny!

My dh hates BC unless it's IMBC, and won't eat cake in general unless it has IMBC.

So he'll ask, "Is this the GOOD icing?" before having a piece...

as if I make any other kind lol

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!! "Out of the mouths of babes.....!"

I have this one casserole dish that I make very infrequently and here's why.

It was a dish my mom created. When I was growing up, we were poorer than dirt so my mom frequently had to make meals out of whatever she had. This casserole is a can of chicken thrown into a pan of bread that's been torn into pieces, with a cut up onion, and then cover the whole thing in sage. Bake. It kinda tastes like chicken stuffing, with lots of chicken.

Anyway .... when you bake it, the top is crispy but the interior is (to use my husband's word) "Gooey". *I* prefer to call it "moist"! It may sound bad, but it's really good! (Look, when I was a kid, you learned to like mom's creations or you starved! icon_wink.gif )

Hubby asks me to make my "Chicken Goo". I told him I was NEVER making a dish that he referred to as "Goo". He keeps calling it that. I keep NOT making it.

Men. You'd think they'd figure it out.

I have a similar story. Whenever I make chicken and dumplings my husband calls it "That chicken and boiled bread dinner". He drives me crazy sometimes. madhatter.gif

Indydebi,

That sounds pretty yummy to me. I like canned chicken. I use it to make chicken turnovers all the time (yes, just canned chicken, drained, in pie dough shaped like a turnover!). I keep the juice from the can, add some soup base, and make gravy with it.

I am going to try that one day soon. With some soup base gravy on it.

My husband shows a little more tact. he will just say " i wouldn't order it if i was at a restaurant!"

at least he doesn't make gagging sounds like my kids do.

MMMM, chicken goo, kind of makes me think of the fatty greasy part off the end of a chicken leg. The recipe actually does sound good but maybe your husband ideas for names shouldn't be used for your business!!! icon_lol.gif

My hubby is, in addition to his day job, a stand-up comedian, and most of his material comes from 18 years of marriage!

True story (that he used at the comedy club last month): A Victoria Secret commercial was on and I said, "I'd like to have that bra!" And he said, (i'm not kidding, he really said)........

"Does Victoria Secret have stuff in your size?"

And he wonders why I never get his input on my business stuff? icon_confused.gif

God luv him .... because SOMEBODY has to! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

I, too, have had people refer to fondant as 'fondue' icon_confused.gif When I started working with fondant, I used Wilton's, as it was readily available. Well, I made a practice cake and served to to my husband and some of his 'football friends' and they began calling cakes with fondant on them 'plasticakes' icon_sad.gif I now pretty much exclusively use MMF, but, much to my dismay, the 'plasticakes' title stuck!

In my family we don't have potatoes au gratin - we have potatoes all rotten. It's also not a hard boiled egg sandwich - it's a horrible egg sandwich. At least I know I'm not the only one with a nutty family! icon_rolleyes.gif

OMG...this post is cracking me up!

squarepair, i am cracking up that your little one took one bite of dinner and proclaimed that it was going to give him diarrhea! toooooo funny! icon_lol.gif

isn't it funny how our DHs can be such food critics. my DH is not picky... he will eat anything and everything... EXCEPT for canned peas. he is a "pea" snob!!
i usually use frozen peas but there is this one dish i make that my mom passed down that requires canned peas. i could try it with frozen but i refuse to since she always used the canned and i think they add a specific flavor.
well, he LOVES it. can't get enough. he has no idea the peas in it are from a can. icon_lol.gif icon_wink.gif

I make a mac and cheese dish with chicken and mixed vegetables, it's very brightly colored and looks sort of like confetti.. my fiance calls it "Confetti and Cheese" haha. When my mother came to visit she was so confused when my fiance told her, "Nikki makes the best Confetti ever."

When my husband and I were dating, I took my kids over to his house and he had made some no bake cookies (pretty much it's fudge with oatmeal in it). My oldest opened his refrigerator and asked, "What's the Brown Stuff?"

18 years later, they are still excited when dad makes "Brown Stuff" for them!

Squarepair, just wanted to say hi from Sterling!

My kids give everything the sniff test! Something new and they spend a couple of seconds sniffing it to see if it is edible!

What a cute, funny thread! I love these!!

One of my fave desserts is a peach crumb pie.
He likes, it but my dh always asks for my "crummy pie" in August.

And though it started with our fondue we served at parties,
FON--DON'T now has a whole new meaning since I started cake decorating! icon_lol.gif

Hi back at ya, Pucka!! My 4 yo gives everything the "lick" test. Give him something new and he licks it, it looks very strange.

Growing up my mom always made "Kelly's Rolls" actually they are butterhorn rolls but she got the recipe out of some church recipe book and the recipe was submitted by Mabel Kelly. So now 3 generations call it Kelly's rolls, sometimes I forget that isn't even the real name. Then there is Pink Salad, I have no idea what the real name is for that!!

All of those meals sound really good! Now I'm getting hungry!

I have a customer who always requests 'bouffant' icing. I said, "Do you mean fondant?" *insert explanation of texture, etc. to be sure this is what she means.* I don't care how many times I say fondant, she always said bouffant. Now it's a joke of course!! icon_wink.gif

I got a call from a lady today who was price checking for her daughters wedding. She wanted to know about dummy cakes. She asked, "And how do you price your dumb cakes?" Through the whole conversation, she kept calling it, "your dumb cakes."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mother once asked my father, "How'd you like dinner?"

He answered, "It was good,....please don't ever make it again."
