Good taste

Meal time. It's a source of stress, I'm not going to lie. But it's also a source of creativity. Because when you have two thirds of your children eating with gusto and the remaining third deciding that you are trying to spoon feed her grim death, you start to flex your creative muscles. After all, a lot is riding on them eating their vegetables. It's like an epic battle of wills. And since I don't have a lot of willpower in the face of screaming, I resort to underhanded tactics - like spinach in the oatmeal. 

But one thing I've noticed since I picked up this parenting gig two years ago is that my repertoire of recipes is ever expanding. We're talking leaps and bounds.
