Dinner Confessions

I have been extra busy this past year and because of that dinner has become somewhat of a disaster. I have found dinner planning to be exhausting because of the picky eaters that I have in my house. I like everything. I like veggies, meats, sauces; you name it I pretty much like it. That is not true for the rest of my family. My youngest is my pickiest eater and I am finding it harder and harder to get him to enjoy the things I cook for dinner. I often find myself cooking frozen things like chicken nuggets. I need to get things back on track. I saw this great idea online and I am going to give it a try. One mom experiencing my same situation got Rachel Ray’s “Cooking Rocks!” cookbook. It features recipes that can be made in 30 or so minutes – by kids. The most important point there is BY KIDS. My plan is to share it with my two children and have them pick out 3 recipes that they would like to “make” for dinner. I have seen her show and her meals appear simple and healthy. I plan to give this a try. I will let you know how it goes. How is dinner at your house?
