My DH is away until next Monday or Tuesday, and he's been gone since last Sunday. I am tired of making just stuff the kids will eat, so I made crock pot potato soup and bread bowls. I was very proud of them and I thought the novelty of eating the bowl, the uncomplicated flavors, along with the cheese and bacon garnish, would entice my picky children.

No. It did not.

This guy got down on the floor and started an all-out tantrum without even tasting it. So he spent dinner in his bed.

K ate a little but he acted like he was doing me a favor. "Ooh, see mom? I'm eating THIS much for you." Corbs ate the bacon off the top and dipped the bread a little but barely ate anything.

I miss cooking for someone who likes food.

Bean is picky with veggies he loves his fruit but he mostly wants hot dogs and sandwiches for dinner. One in a while I can get him to eat chicken if I make nuggets. But rarely.

Bummer...we make the kids eat the same as us but it doesn't always mean they eat. We just don't make special food. Miikka is pretty picky. I try to make sure there is something he will eat in the meal but we don't cook around him. Those look great btw!

That looks yummy. Kids amaze me how just the site of food is a natural No I am not eating that. My daughter does that and when I make her taste it she is amazed to discover he likes it.

 Those look yummy!  My older two kids are just now getting where they are more willing to try lots of new things and eat a greater variety.
