"Why can't you make it the way you've ALWAYS made it?"

Anyone else run into this? So far, my family loves the new ceramic cooker, except for one thing... Dad's research has turned up lots of new recipes, and Dad is the kind of guy who was a bachelor for many years, and doesn't mind trying new things, and when he has to he doesn't mind eating his mistakes.

"Tonight we're going to have 'Simon and Garfunkel chicken', I got the recipe from the internet and everyone who's tried it loves it!"
"Uhhh... what was wrong with the way you always made it before? Can't we have that?"

"Honey, try this new rib recipe. I got some tips on rubs, and this looks like it's going to be pretty good."
"Did you make one rack that way and one the way we like them?"

Sheesh. It's hard enough for anything new to crack my standard repertoire, but getting the girls to ask for anything new, that's impossible!

    Oh, but when they try something new at a restaurant, it's, "That was GREAT! You should learn how to make that!"

    Most men have a spirit of adventure that goes back to the Cavemen. Women don't.
    "Look Honey, I just discovered fire!!!" 
    "What are you going to do with that?"
    "I think I'll cook a T-Rex leg on it!"
    "Can't we just eat it raw like we always do?"

    What herbs are in the Simon and Garfunkel chicken, as if I couldn't guess?

    Harriet, how ya doin!
     
    Here's a link to the blend. Not that it's all that secret or anything, but Craig Goldwyn put a lot of thought and time (and probably money) into his awesome website, and I'd rather give him full credit by linking it rather than pasting it.
     
    Here's a link to the chicken recipe. The website itself is well worth the visit, there's lots of useful stuff related to cooking.

    I'm the same way. I like to try new recipes as much as possible. My wife, however, hates it. So I usually make a backup dish, too.

    I'm good! And my joke fell flat...I figured that the chicken was made with parsley, sage...you know...
