Food, glorious food!
We're anxious to try it.
Three banquets a day --
Our favourite diet!
The day I've been waiting for has finally arrived - I cooked one meal for my family of four and everyone ate! It was a quick fix dinner from the frozen food section to boot - 15 minutes from freezer to table. Not my favorite way to cook, but it beats prepping three separate meals every night.
Diva has been very good about trying new things over the last year, but Frog remained steadfast in his five dish diet (Ego waffles, PB&J sandwiches, Mac-n-Cheese, Chicken Nuggets and French Fries, and Turkey and Cheese Sub with lots of Olives). A few nights ago, something amazing happened. Frog flat out refused his PB&J sandwich at dinner time - pushed the plate away. Then he went after his Dad's spicy penne and shrimp. Dad held him off, warning him that it was hot and asking him what he wanted. Frog said
"Nu, Nu, Nu, Nu, Nu".
Since that night, Frog has eaten spaghetti with meatballs, Fettuccini Alfredo with chicken and broccoli, white rice (I thought of you Charlie) with Thai sweet and sour sauce, Gnocchi with tomato and cheese sauce, hamburger bun with ketchup (he left the burger behind), popcorn, and muffins. Last night I made homemade rice pilaf and a gourmet pork chop dish with a red wine, rosemary, and Dijon mustard pan juice reduction. Little Frog mostly tossed the rice around, but he did climb onto the counter after dinner and enjoyed the remaining pan juice reduction. Tonight - chicken vegetable stir-fry. I cut the vegetables and chicken really small for him and he ate most of them - even finished what Diva left behind. Diva even surprised us by asking for peas in the pod which I had left out of her serving because I though she only liked carrots and broccoli.
For a Frog Mom who loves to cook, this is happy news indeed!
