dinner is not my favorite time of day

I know most mom's out there LOVE to cook, well I DO NOT!" I actually HATE IT!  I would rather do laundry the old fashion way with a little bucket and a scrubby tray thing, than make dinner.  If any of you reading want to take me up on it, I will gladly trade you laundry duty for some cassaroles. 

It takes imagination, creativity, and someone with time management skills.  I can't ever come up with what food items go together more or less a meal I created on my own.  Everything I make was either invented by my mom when I was little, or I saw it on TV.  I am what you call a copycat dinner maker.  And nothing I make is really creative besides the fact that I live with three of the most picky eaters on the planet.  So if you are wondering what a picky eater looks like, here it is........

Are any of you familar with this look?  Probably not, because I know no one else can cook as bad as me.  I made steak this night and Nathan has the smallest piece on his plate along with 2 little green beans and some white rice.  You might notice the half eaten watermelon which is the only thing he actually ate that night.  So sad, I was NEVER EVER allowed to not eat my vegtables or allowed to even "think" that I could not eat my vegatables.  I don't know how you force someone to eat something, I certainly am very weak at this type of dicipline and I know I have two boys just laughing at me while they sit back and not eat what I gave them for dinner.  Did I say I hate dinner? 

Now I am going to go and paint something out in the finish shop, at least the cabinets can't say no to me and I don't have to fix them dinner!

  2. I just found the magazine "Clean Eating" (they have a great website too with free recipes). Their recipes are pretty simple with normal ingredients and don't take too long to cook. I am trying very hard to learn how to cook better :), and these recipes are awesome! I don't have any picky eaters though, and I don't envy you on that one!! :)
