My brother doesn’t like people to play around with things that are not broken or already good. “Just leave it alone!”, he’ll growl at you. When I prepare food, I am always screwing around with things. He hates it. He always tries it, and often will eat it, but happily watches me get back on a plane or in the car so he can just eat food how it should be. No “hippie” food, no vegan crap, just left alone.
I made dinner tonight – a stir fry with marinated tempeh and chicken served on grated cauliflower. Todd ate it. Said he could have done without the tempeh, but ate it. Dessert? Well.
