Not the Top Chef

After a LONG battle over dinner the other night, Garth told Sydney that she had 10 more minutes to eat her food or dinner was over and she would have to be hungry. In 10 minutes, no bites had been taken so he excused her from the table.
She walks over to the couch, peers over the back at her Dad and says, "You guys make the lamest dinners."
I try really hard, I do! But it's hard to satisfy a customer who thinks the only dinner that isn't lame is plain pasta with Parmesan cheese. What can I do?

it's ok, least she said you GUYS, so at least Garth gets some of the blame too :)

I can totally see her saying that, since she's your daughter, and I can just hear the accent on "LAMEST", exactly how you say it! :) My kids think pasta and parm is the best meal ever, so don't feel too bad. I've sent my kids to bed hungry for weeks at a time. She'll come around!

That is too funny! I hear ya though. I spend time making (what I think) sounds/looks good, only to have my kids look at it and want cereal or mac n cheese. Jas gave me the book "Deceptively Delicious" and so far the meals I have made have worked. I need to make more though. Just a suggestion.
