When I was 18 and a new young wife (and very pregnant) I told my husband I was going to attempt to make lasagna for the first time because he loved the dish so much. I went to bring him lunch at work and told him my plan. He looks at me and says, "Baby you know
I only eat my mom's lasagna." Filled with hormones, I started crying and ran out of the office and called my grandma. She told me to not let that stop me from trying to learn something new in cooking. I refused to make it that day, but eventually caved in and made lasagna.
HERE is the kicker...we ended up divorcing after a decade and he actually paid me to cook him lasagna once a month for almost a year after the split. And funny thing is, that I took a big big pan of lasagna over to his house when picking up the kids the other day just to be nice.
So don't give up. I would invite them over for dinner and make Asian again but different dishes.
