I can’t decide. I feel like it might be bordering on rude, a little bit. Anyway, here’s the situation.
My aunt and uncle are coming in from NC on Monday and are planning to come over to my apartment on Tuesday night after I get off work. I am very close to them, my aunt especially, and this will be the first time that my aunt has seen my apartment and my new car.
I invited them over to my apartment and I offered to cook dinner for them. Money is too tight for me so I can’t afford to go out to dinner with them so I offered to cook instead. Now here’s the issue. My cooking skills are a bit limited. I only have like four dinner meals that I can cook very well. And they’re not exactly healthy lol. I can do Hamburger Helper, my “famous” spaghetti, tacos or meat loaf.
So I’m texting my aunt right now and I tell her that they can come over on Tuesday night and I will cook spaghetti or tacos for dinner.
My aunt replies with and I quote, “Um pass. We are trying to eat healthy. :)”
I was a bit taken aback at this. I replied with “Lol well as you remember, my cooking repertoire is limited :p”
She hasn’t responded to that text yet.
But y’all, I can’t cook anything else for her. Certainly not anything that she would deem healthy. I’m just not much of a cook. And I can’t afford to go out to eat. But I guess I can try to find something to make that is easy and healthy…sigh.
I feel like it was a little rude of her to just shoot down my offer to cook spaghetti or tacos, even if it’s not healthy. They’re getting a free meal! I understand wanting to eat healthy but…I mean, for one night, can’t you just suck it up and eat whatever I offer you?
What do you think? Is she being a little rude or am I overreacting at this? Also, healthy dinner recipes that is EASY and has just a few ingredients for me to make would be welcomed 🙂
