Quote of the Day


Angry 8-year-old daughter says:
"There's never anything I like to eat around here. It's always, homemade, homemade, homemade..."

I love it! My kids said the something along the same line yesterday--"sometimes we just want to eat junk food and you won't buy anything, you always have to make it!"

Too funny!! I go through the same thing with my middle child - never seems to like anything I make.

Seems hard to imagine in your house though - your meals looks and sound delish!!

I remember a similar fit several years ago from ME. We were at the check out line and I looked in the cart my (wiser) wife had filled, at all the bulk bags and vegetables and exclaimed "There's no FOOD in here!".

Of course what I meant is that there was that there was very little to just reach in an eat-no convenience food. What I was doing was looking at a pile of lumber and appliances and saying "There's no house there!"

My how I have grown!

I laughed out loud at this one. Take heart. That was my daughter's reaction (more or less) when I served her homemade macaroni and cheese. Somewhere along a very short line it became her favorite thing and something she bragged to her friends about.

That's hilarious!

Melissa, I hate to say it, but I think our daughter would eat junk for 24/7 if she could. The food scientists know how to make it taste good.

Late Bloomer, we do make a lot of great food in our house, and our daughter is always trying to order a la carte. Go figure...

Amanda, I'm sure you know whereof you speak.

Rob, I think we all have those junk food jags. Sometimes after eating healthy day-in-day-out, all you want to eat is a bag of chips, a big fat hot dog, some chili cheese fries...
