I agree with everyone else.
I think you are right to tell her that was unacceptable.
I'm trying to think in what possible capacity would she think talking about the food would be harmful to you. As THAT would be the only way I could see her justifying telling you not to talk about it.
Also, I think the discussion about the romantic gesture should be okay if you want to talk about it. You should not feel limited, especially in therapy. And moving forward, I would urge you not to apologize for the subjects you bring up. Therapy is about your comfort, not hers.
I often have social teas, and of course we talk about guys, gestures, kids, previous stomach flus, weight, etc etc etc. Whatever you want to talk about is open discussion. And worst case scenario, that's what asking "TMI?" is for.
:-) good luck rnny!
