Dinner in my home: Spaghetti, Salad and Rolls(reduced fat/vegan)
Sounds easy, right? Not in my family. We have not ate yet, but this is how it is going to go.
This is the break down . . .
Scott (vegan): pasta with vegetarian sauce, vegetable protein substitute (fake meat), salad and a roll. He will ask why there isn’t more onions. I stop cutting onions once I start crying. That’s my rule. Why are the bottoms of the rolls burnt? They’re not burnt, just crispy.
Caden (hates vegetables): Spaghetti? Why do we have to have spaghetti? I HATE spaghetti! I hate fake meat! He will end up eating plain pasta with butter and parmesan. He hates the sauce or anything with vegetables in it. He will NOT eat salad and will eat more rolls than pasta.
Calder(mildly likes vegetables): Only give me a little tiny bit of the sauce. Not from the pan, it has onions in it. Give it to me from the can (I never pour the whole can in) No parmesan. This kid hates cheese. He will have some salad, but mostly pick at it. No ranch dressing? Ugg! I hate fake meat! He will eat a roll.
Callie (Vegetarian): Only give me a little tiny bit of sauce. No parmesan. She loves cheese, just not this kind. Loves salad. Will not eat a roll. She will ask me a hundred times, Is this real meat? I will answer a hundred times, no.
Angela (meat eater): At this point I don’t care. I’m not hungry any more.
**Fake meat does NOT taste like real meat.

I can relate on soooo many levels, except my kids have no excuse for disliking my food. No vegans or vegetarians in my house. Just whiners and food wasters. I actually love to cook, and think I'm pretty good at it--until my kids look at my creations...not fun.

We have a rule in our house. This is dinner. If you don't like it you don't need to eat it but this is all their is until breakfast. Also, the person who complains makes dinner the next night.
