hamlet_, as others have said, try to introduce the more-scratch foods gradually. Hopefully your husband comes around to enjoying the foods as much as the packaged products. Sometimes it takes just a small change in one ingredient to make it taste "off". Himself likes spaghetti. I make a tweaked version of his Mom's homemade sauce in a 12-quart vat several times during the cooler weather. When we were first married, I was being the frugal bride and bought a different, cheaper brand of tomato sauce. All that work and he said it wasn't as good.
Turns out it was the Hunts. Eventually I tried other recipes using tomatoes even though he said he liked it just as sauce. I made sure I used Hunts each time for every recipe. He liked them! Now, after all these years, he enjoys dishes full of tomato made with various brands OR fresh - just so long as it isn't highly acidic. I don't like the acid-y taste either and now know which brands we'll both enjoy. Takes time, but don't give up! Good luck.

+1! The way I look at it he overlooks my one fault and I overlook his 20.
Actually, we're pretty even on things that annoy the other...
