Tonight I made dinner. I didn't say what I was making other than asparagus. Instead, I just waited until it was done, dished it up on the plates and called the family to the table. Swae and Seth sat down and got right to work eating. First of all, they L-O-V-E asparagus or "greens" as they call them. Seth had two helpings.

I was also shocked to see them both shoveling in bites of the stir fry chow mein. They both ate every single bite that was served to them. There was no complaining, there was no anything other than hearing "yum" and "mmmmmmm..." coming out of their little mouths. So awesome! I am not kidding, they used to be so picky a year and a half ago. Their variety of things they eat keeps expanding and they are willing to try new things. I love it. I hope that Skylar is the same way.

It is so awesome making one meal for everyone to eat - the kids and Eli and I rather than making him and I something and then the kids something separate. It is just more simple plus I feel like it is more healthy with them eating a variety of meats and vegetables. Tonight they ate carrots, red bell pepper, asparagus, broccoli, chicken, and the list goes on. I think that is just awesome and I am so impressed.

Yeah for one family dinner!!

I just stopped cooking 2 meals last month. H is almost 3 so I decided he was old enough to eat dinner with us or go hungry. He usually goes hungry, but I am sticking to my guns darn it. I don't want a picky eater.
