Can you just "lie" and not inform him of what you put in it?
That's why I would do. My DH *thinks* he doesn't like some things, but little does he know....he actually eats them sometimes.

(Coconut milk doesn't taste like coconut to me.)

It's really yummy. Just put some olive oil and garlic on a skillet and start throwing stuff on. My chicken was cooked already, but you can just cook it first before you throw anything on. Then throw the veggies on and cook them. Then some cooked rice...then add the coconut milk and simmer. Then the arrowroot to thicken (or flour) and then the spices. Enjoy! This is one of our favorite dishes...I love throwing skillet dishes together.

Re: What are you making for dinner?

Some friends gave us some steaks. I rubbed them with McCormick Steak Seasoning and put them on my George Foreman. Served it with mashed taters (seasoned with the steak seasoning and a little salt) and steam-in-bag broccoli and cauliflower. It was yummy.
