Please help. I need serious advice on how to go about an issue that is upsetting me and threatening the peace and love that my husband and I share. My mother in-law insists on cooking huge pots of soup for my husband every week. When she started some months ago, she cooked like 3 different pots of soup and sent them over. I wasn't too bothered because I thought it was a one off thing. But she continued. Every single week, she will send one or two pots of soup over. I'm unhappy because it has just brought back unhappy memories of when she was living with us and made me so miserable by cooking endlessly in my kitchen (among other things). Sometimes, she would cook six different things and insist on leaving them in the pots on the burners. And then when my husband arrives from work, she will make sure she rushes to the door to get there before me and start telling him all the things she cooked for him. It was as if she was competing with me for his attention and affection. I don't mind if she sends cooked food over once in a while but when she cooks such a large quantity and every blessed week that means my freezer is always stocked with her soup and my husband now asks specifically for his mother's soup. And no, its not because she's a better cook than I am. Without bragging, I cook very well and my husband loves my food. All the members of his family look forward to my meals whenever they come over to visit. I don't know how to raise the issue with him because he is extremely sensitive about his family but its making me so unhappy. I'm not a whiner and I know how to be stoical and face up to issues but I just dont think this is proper. Please, what should I do? Should I let it be or should I talk to him? Thank you.
