My Mother-In-Law Doesn’t Want to Eat Thanksgiving Dinner I Cook, Plans to Bring Her Own Meals

A 32-year-old woman eagerly planned a Thanksgiving feast, investing time and effort into crafting an extensive menu. However, her excitement turned to frustration when her husband revealed that his mother, a “grade A picky eater,” wanted to bring her own dinner.

The woman had prepared traditional dishes like turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes, alongside unique additions like roasted carrots and stuffed mushrooms. Despite the wide array of options, her mother-in-law insisted on bringing her own food.

The woman felt hurt by this request, viewing it as a commentary on her cooking efforts. She contemplated uninviting her mother-in-law but ultimately chose to take the high road, focusing on creating a perfect Thanksgiving for her other guests. She hoped her mother-in-law might try something new and enjoy it but was prepared for the possibility that she wouldn’t.

The woman’s decision received mixed reactions from Redditors, leaving the question of whether she handled the situation correctly unanswered.
