Just eat the damn food. What are they going to do about it...tell your husband?
100% this. EAT the food in the house. Let your husband know exactly what was said to you, and then tell him you will be eating the food in the home. Be cordial though, and restock items that you use, not the expiring ones. (Milk, bread, etc.) Your eating of food costs her nothing compared to a dog spa. This will probably be the last time you ever do it too. Bon voyage!
too much is missing from this story. the food might already be spoiled, they don't want in law to get sick. they already left money with which to get food, multiple restaurants nearby or across the street. the no food clause was known weeks in advance, op simply forgot. or any combination thereof - maybe owners forgot to mention the money. op is actually a professional dog sitter and just wanted sympathy for another day on the job.
Eat the spoiling food, use the Internet, watch TV and take care of the dog. Move the furniture three inches to the right at the beginning of your stay so the dog has time to get used to it. Try the comfiest-looking bed, let the dog climb on it, eat their cookies in it, clean the linen afterwards and redo the bed using your method, not their. Buy new cookies, put it in their pantry, buy yourself food you like and cook it using their kitchenware. Shower, clip your nails and brush your teeth in their bathroom. Clean the place, do the dishes, put them back in a slightly different place, buy replacement food and some off-brand dog treats and restock the fridge. All in all, you will spend a great three weeks and your in-laws will never ask you to dog sit again.
