A woman has shared how she avoids her mother-in-law’s meals because she ‘hates’ the way she cooks.
Posting on Mumsnet, the woman explained that she can’t stand her MIL’s kitchen habits and that she tries to do everything to avoid going there for lunch or dinner.
“My mother in law defrosts food, especially meat in the plastic packages or clingwrap that it comes in, in the microwave. Or sometime she will pop it in one of those ziplock bags and take it out of the freezer and pop it in the microwave for 10 or 20 minutes to defrost,” she wrote.
The woman then that the food comes out of the microwave ‘so hot’ that she claimed it’s ‘so bad’ for their health as well.
“And it is not like she just pops it in plastic Tupperware (which is bad enough), it is literally clingwrap. I know we can not side step every health hazard, I mean there is pesticide and microplastic in probably all our food, but I feel like we should try and sidestep those that we can,” she continued.
The mom also explained that she has two young children and is pregnant with her third child.
Other Mumsnet were quick to offer some advice, with one mom commenting: “Depends how often you eat there. Once in a while, I’m sure it’s fine and I wouldn’t stress about it.”
Another said: “Is she the type of person who will change her ways once given the info you intend? If yes, then of course say it. If no, then there’s no value in saying it. You’ll have to find an alternative such as not eating there.”
