Well, so much for the menu plan I just posted Monday. My children continue to express distaste for whatever it is I fix. We just finished what I think was a great dinner of beef stew, fresh homemade wheat rolls, and spinach salad dressed with red peppers, banana peppers and red onions. Well, only one of my children ate the entree. This seems to be happening every.single.night and I am sick.of.it. There is nothing wrong with my cooking, but morale in the mess hall is way down. All three of our kids are in a picky streak right now and we have not and will not cave to their desires in this area. They really do not even know how good they have it! But it ruining our mealtimes, so the only topic addressed is the food and not the rest of life that should be shared around our dinner table.
I will not fix two dinners, one for the grown-ups and one for the kids.
I will not serve hot dogs, mac and cheese, corn dogs and petrified pizza on a regular basis.
I will press on.
I will stay strong.
I will not allow my kids' opinions to cause me to feel I am useless mother.
I will rise tomorrow to cook again!
Lord, help me cook and serve with a cheerful heart!
