Hodgepodge: noun A heterogeneous mixture. That’s our dinner table in a nut shell.
I love to cook, eat and read about food.
My husband that will eat about anything, but he loves meat and food with meat in it, preferable pork. My twelve-year-old daughter enjoys her carbs, pasta, bread, potatoes. My 16-year-old daughter decided 2 years ago she was not going to eat meat, Teens! Me I like it all, yet about a year ago found out that I can’t eat wheat, and ever since my first daughter was born can’t eat shellfish.
So what is a mom suppose to make for dinner?????? Be creative. I am starting this blog, mainly to keep track of some of the great things I have come up with and the not so good.
I don’t believe in making everyone their own meal nor do I want to. I guess I get that from my mom who always said “you will eat what I make and like it or don’t eat“. At the time I thought what a mean mom, now I see that she was being realistic, making one meal is time-consuming, making 4 is just crazy.
My parents were original hippies. We never had sugar in the house, mom canned good, made her own granola and we ate vegetable that we grew and picked. I thought my life sucked. Now I crave it, processed food is just not good. My mom wise before her time, she is my hero.
