I am just wondering if he managed to eat all of that to please his MIL.

Her son in law must be very lucky to have such a wonderful mother in law.

Why are son in law so pampered?
Person with normal appetite can’t even get to taste all these 67 items.

The son in law should be taught to make all this items as well. So that he can cook for his wife and his parents later.
