    What Are Your Kids Eating Tonight?

    Dude, I don’t blame you! My big went back Wednesday and then my parents showed up as a surprise for my birthday, so she took of Friday to be with them. My little wasn’t due back til tomorrow so that was going to be a mess regardless. Hubby is still active duty so he’s not furloughed, but we know too many people who are to feel good about it.

    This pretty much sums up my entire state of being right now. I hate winter break. #sendwine

    After two weeks of nonstop whining and bickering, I gave up on self-respect at the store today. Hence, my kids are eating noodles shaped like princess gowns, castles, and crowns. At least it’s covered in spinach and vegetable marinara. 🤷‍♀️

    I think I’ve mentioned the turkey pumpkin pasta sauce before...well I made it into a lasagna, with some spinach for good measure. My kids ate like food was going out of style.

    Tonight the kids ate leftover mushu pork*, with a side of supermarket sushi**, which I also had, and yes we are done with dinner at 5:35pm, because TIRED. *We have epically mediocre Chinese takeout up here. I'm seriously bummed. **Wegmans does a decent job on the supermarket sushi. I prefer our local place, but I'm solo-parenting after the holiday weekend -- hubs has a work trip -- and I couldn't be arsed to do separate stops with two small humans in tow.

    I actually totally think this is a great approach. As kids get older and can understand nutrition, I think mandating "nutritious" foods -- even if it requires a small incentive -- in the long run makes them more mindful, balanced eaters. I'm a fan of Satter as well, but I do think at some point you're actually doing your parental duty by saying, "You can't live your entire life avoiding the vegetables on the plate" (well, ok, technically you could, but it's a wickedly bad idea). It's vastly different from requiring a child to clean their plate of a food they abhor or using the withholding of treats as a punishment. For your little one -- how old again? If under kindergarten age, I'd probably just stick with what works for now. Logic about nutrition isn't going to help. Include whatever non-processed foods s/he WILL eat with most meals, and maybe start to increase the proportion of those to the less desirable foodstuffs. My littler one is a much less balanced/adventurous eater than her big sister, but there's only so far I can go, especially since she's the kid who gets hangry and has endless meltdowns in that case, so there's got to be *something* she'll eat or we're all in for misery.

    I think my kids had this for lunch three times last week.

    I have had A Day and hubby is out so I am having sushi. The kids had Pick-Your-Own-Leftovers which — thank you, The Incredibles — they think is the most excellent dinner ever.

    We did it this morning, because I had an event this afternoon and didn’t want to have to deal with the concept of dinner after!! Plus it was a nice morning activity while Daddy ran some errands.

    Lasagna (spinach and beef in an Alfredo-ish béchamel, and marinara with mushrooms). Yes, no-boil noodles.
