I think it's just needing something to bitch about. Perfect example: Robert had been wanting pigs in a blanket for a couple of weeks, so I made some ("gourmet," though). Johnny showed up completely unannounced, but luckily I had made enough. He proceeded to, very loudly, bitch to Robert that I apparently couldn't make anything more than "baby food" for him. I was so angry that I left the house for a couple of hours and went over to a friend's house to cool off.

FWIW, I'm making chicken pillows tonight (my aunt's recipe). Chicken, sour cream, cream cheese (and some other stuff...don't have the recipe handy lol)...all wrapped up in crescent rolls and baked. Not sure what else to make with it, though. Any ideas?

Drafty...I "don't" cook...and one...ONE...night I made spaghetti (about eight years ago) for DH & DS. Well, DS was too young to happily eat "unfamiliar" tasting spaghetti and DH politely expressed he didn't care for it so much, either.

Guess who has not cooked A MEAL SINCE? And, conversely, guess who has learned to cook all the meals SINCE? YUP! DH definitely regrets that comment...but he's a ****ed good cook for it!! :0)

You complain in my house, you're DONE! Harsh...but gotta draw the line somewhere...now, I will occasionally make something simple, but its not a common occurrence, and my husband would kill for a wife who cooks! I told him that when we retire or when he can support me and I no longer have to work, I'll gladly cook nightly!! :0)

Maple...I'm with you. A job is a job...nothing is beneath me, and I've done some pretty tough/"degrading" jobs in my life when necessary to support myself before becoming a nurse. If I could no longer work as a nurse, what I would do is precisely as you have. Have a "main" job, providing the majority of the income, and a second job if necessary that was as mentally "non-taxing" as possible, and just glide through it, being happy for the added income...people astound me with how "job snobby" they can be while their family has to go without. I don't think anyone on this thread has an ounce of that in them...we ALL seem to work harder by far than what we are paid, comparatively, and we all are happy to bring home pay...end of story!

Hang in there tonight Drafty! I agree with whomever suggested to hide out in the bedroom! (my total m.o.when my brother in law comes around)!

Hugs guys! :0)

Aaaaaand he showed up early. Threw the dogs in the house so he could pull his truck in the yard and unload some stuff, so now I'm dealing with Abby (who somehow managed to find a nasty old piece of chocolate in the back room and would not bring it to me), Cash (who, as usual, is being an angel, but he's blowing out his winter coat, so he's shedding EVERYWHERE), and Cosmo (who managed to stink up the entire house with one poop in the back room and now I can't find the air freshner...and he and Abby are tearing through the house) all inside, just as I was leaving to go to the store and to pay my board. Who needs kids when you have crazy animals and crazy "in-laws"?! (BTW, Cash and Abby are only allowed inside for bedtime or if it's inclimate out.)

They are amazing. If he doesn't like them, not my problem.

Dang, Drafty. I hope you get around to sharing that recipe. I can't speak for anyone else, but it sounds divine!

Ok. Here ya go.

-One large (12.5oz) can of chicken breasts (or you can make your own)
-One package cream cheese, softened
-One pint sour cream
-Grated cheese (your choice...we usually use cheddar)
-Two packages (6 each) crescent rolls
-4 Tbs melted butter
-Bread or cracker crumbs (optional)

Combine softened cream cheese and sour cream. Fold in remaining ingredients. Spoon into separated crescent rolls. Roll or fold up crescent rolls. Brush with butter and sprinkle roll in bread/cracker crumbs (if desired). Place on greased baking sheet(s) and bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Variations:
You can also add ham (roughly chopped).
Or sprinkle with cheese on top.

Drafty, if he doesn't like it tell him to kiss your ass and go somewhere else to eat! If you are going to be kind enough to house him then he can have the decency to have some respect.
Actually, imagine you made something really nasty on purpose...hahahahaaa

Maple, I love how you talk! Sod him...lmao yes!

It's so nice to come on here and see how "human" everyone is. There's so much fluff and bs on this forum it's ridiculous. I have this and another thread where I can say what I want and not have to worry!

We're working on polishing up out 30 ft turd!! Well, DH is mostly, but I'm supervising of course...hehehe. He is repairing some places and primering and all sorts of things. It is going to be beautiful when it's done, can't wait to share pics!
