This is a blog for people to discuss what they are eating. There is a theory that by journaling eating habits, people will eat healthier. I am trying to cook more at home and feed my family a wider variety of foods. People can just read or join as co-authors. Topics don't have to be recipes with nice photos. You can write about eating habits, special diets, culinary cultural differences, etc.

Cooking with love heals

Just want to share this story. Since I am not a morning person and my husband is, he has made breakfast for the kids for many years. As anyone who's ever cooked for my children know, it's a thankless task.

Anyways, he was furious at them for not eating -- two days in a row -- the meals he woke up at the break of dawn to make. He boycotted breakfast today. They had bananas and cereal by themselves. He slept in.

So I knew we needed a seriously healing meal. I made Holly's breakfast burritos with Reina. It was a filling and delicious meal for all. Everyone laughed and joked after eating it.

Hiroshi wanted to go out to eat but ordering different choices would not just emphasize our differences. I felt if we cooked and ate the same things together, we would unify as a family. Corny I know, but a true story.

So thanks Holly and everyone who has contributed here. Hope some of you have reaped benefits as well.

What a nice story and what a nice Daddy to make the kids breakfasts. Making food for picky eaters is sometimes a thankless job but some day when they are cooking for their kids they will look back on breakfast with Daddy fondly.

Awwww... that is such a sweet story. Thank you. :) I'm glad you are getting some use out of that recipe. It is one of our family favorites, too. I do not cook with my hubby, but Thomas is starting to cook with me, and that feels so wonderful. Eventually the kids will figure out the need to show appreciation and/or gratitude for the care Daddy shows for them in making their breakfast every morning. Perhaps you should give them some pointers about talking to Daddy, in a diplomatic way, about what he fixes that they like and what he fixes that they don't like. And how they think he could change those things they don't like.

Well, we decided to make up a weekly menu so the kids get to have some say as well. They got to chose their drinks.

The other thing I told Hiro was that he shouldn't try new recipes for breakfast. With dinner and lunch, there's more time for experimenting...

Things should work out as long as we keep to a plan!
