There was a time when meals were carefully planned, and prepared to entice little, energetic boys. Nowadays, I receive special requests or subtle hints from my kids to make a certain dish. I just can't believe how fast they're growing up, and how much they eat! They eat like adults! Yesterday, I made a pasta dish for lunch - enough to last for Monday's dinner. It's practically gone. I just had enough to pack for their school lunches. Whatever happened to the picky eaters, vegetable haters; and dramatic outbursts? Don't get me wrong, hubby and I are thrilled they're eating well, and asking for more servings. We're just seeing more of our portions dwindle each mealtime. It's fine, they are, after all, growing boys. Did you hear that? Yes, it's my tummy grumbling - pangs of hunger strike now and then but for good reason.
It's only wishful thinking, but can I have that last morsel of pasta?
