So what is a mom supposed to think when her son calls and asks how I make my gravy and then informs me that his wife doesn't have a clue!

They are in the navy and live in va! I don't think she wants to know how to cook much! It's convenient for her that way! She's a bit lazy

It wasn't her idea! My son wants her to but it's hard to teach gravy making over the phone! She's probably relieved!

So in other words you don't like her for shallow reasons to whatever extent. Who cares if she doesn't know how to cook. A lot of girls don't learn because they are raised in single parent homes and the parent is working a lot to raise them. Some don't because single parent is a piece of crap and some don't because they just don't get it or have little experience. They love each other and she makes him happy. Deal with it. If you don't accept her you will most likely see less of him when he's able to be home. You can't rule his life. And if you try to shun his girl you will be the one to lose.

And perhaps it isn't that she doesn't know how to cook, but that she wasn't raised in a home where lard is a food group. You should take pity on her and teach her the ways of central Ohio coronary clogging cuisine.

She just asked about gravy lol and it looks like she hit a nerve. There is a lot of girls that do not know how to cook. It isn't the early 1900's anymore. I even do the cooking in my house. Lazy is the norm with most people in general these days.

I can't teach her! She lives in va! When they come to visit she isn't interested in any kitchen activities! My son just bought her a brand new $250.000 home with this huge fancy kitchen and I wonder what she's gonna do in there!

Wo now! You pretty much did by the comments of "she's a bit lazy" and "she's probably relieved". You show it even if you didn't say it. And if you do like her you wouldn't have made this thread. So don't come posting this sort of stuff and then pretend you like her. Does your son and his non-cooking wife know about your postings on Topix about being so confused on what to think of non-gravy-cooking daughters-in-law? Maybe you should ask her why she doesn't know how to cook rather than say stuff on here about it and secretly feel pity for your "poor boy"

I didn't say anything on here that I didn't tell her on the phone earlier! I don't tiptoe thru the tulips! She said Mexicans don't make gravy

My son is the one who told me that she's a bit lazy and that he does all the cleaning! I'm just taking his word for it

It is very possible. Boys don't look for good qualities in a woman other than usually one thing.

She told me that if she has to be pregnant and give birth that he will be the one who deals with the baby at night! She seemingly thinks that no other woman has given birth or pregnant before! He's gonna be in for some long nights!

So, Meg, she's Mexican? Is that the REAL problem you have with her? If you're stuck on the gravy thing, buy her a Betty Crocker cookbook for Christmas. Hell, gravy's just meat drippings (fat), flour, and milk or water that's stirred, BFD. And there is good gravy at many stores. It would be nice if we could sit at home instead of working, so we didn't have to buy a pre-formed pie crust and could roll on out, but this isn't 1940. When I go visit the Amish bakery, I told them we could bake any one of their items if we had the time and they were floored that non-Amish knew what an oven even was. If you don't stop being so snotty to your daughter-in-law, you'll have grandkids you'll never get to see. For the last 20+ years, girls in HS take shop, and the boys take Bachelor Survival (Home Ec). I have a friend I worked with almost 20 years ago and she confided to me before the wedding that the only thing she knew how to cook was brownies, but she hadn't told her fiancee yet. I said "Well, you can cook bacon, eggs, burgers, pizza, and use the microwave, can't you?" and she said no; almost 20 years later they are still happily married. Lighten up, Meg.

I am not the one who referred to being Mexican she did! My son knows how to cook and take care of himself because I taught him to! He's a good kid and he's the only e-6 chief engine man in the world! I'm just saying she doesn't seem interested in learning! I think it's nice for a woman to try to do things to please their husband and he likes to eat! He's 6'7"" hes hungry!
