Mine, too, but my recipe adds a tbsp or so of balsamic vinegar.

We're having penne pasta with homemade roasted tomato sauce, Italian sausage, ground chuck, mushrooms, fresh basil and freshly grated parmigiana reggiano, with toasted buns on the side.

That's interesting. I wonder how many other couples cook two totally different meals in the evening based on different tastes?

Nothing special here, we had chilli-con-carne.

Essentially never here. There are virtually no differences in the things Buck and I like and/or dislike. Makes cooking very, very easy. And, thankfully, this was true when the children were at home.

I sure don't I make salads in individual bowls and will prep, say, a bowl of chopped raw onions when we're having tacos, since he likes them raw and I don't. But not two different meals.

At first, I was gonna say not here but then I got to thinking about it and that kind of happens at my house too. When I was growing up, children were expected to eat everything on their plates. I understand that better now, but it was awful for me as a child. I didn't develop an eating disorder, I just ended up having a bad feeling about mealtimes. (Maybe it has something to do with my terrible cooking skills now.) Anyway, as a parent, I have never made any of my 7 children eat anything they didn't want to. However, it's difficult to make a meal where 8+ people like every dish. So I make one meal (trying to make sure there is at least 1 thing everybody likes), and then those that don't care for anything served will make themselves something else. So yeah, there have been many times that several people had different things for dinner. (But mama bear only makes 1 meal ... period!)
