I love to cook and I tend to be quite creative when I do. From vegetarian lasagne to shrimp curry to ginger beef, I love finding a few favourite dishes from all different styles of cuisine and then tweaking them until they’re just the way I want. Unfortunately, my boys are picky eaters and invariably refuse to eat anything that I’ve cooked when supper arrives. “I don’t like that,” is a common refrain in our household and it drives me absolutely crazy!
As a result, I’ve found myself stuck in a dinnertime rut and it’s not one that I’m happy about. Instead of the fun and exotic dishes I want to create, I tend to stick to kid-friendly basics like spaghetti and hot dogs. After all, what’s the point of working so hard to make a fancy and delicious meal when I’m the only one that’s going to be eating it?
