Anyway, none of my kids will eat this dish which brings me to the real point of this post. I was talking to my sister-in-law and she said that she doesn't make her kids eat things but she does make them try everything at least a couple of times. I think that this a great idea. In fact, it may be the perfect solution to the age old food battle between kids and parents. The only problem, it doesn't work in my house, not one bit! The reason that it doesn't work might be that my husband and I are quite possibly the most stubborn people on the planet. Which means stubbornness is the most dominant trait in my household. Which means that I may get them to eat a bite but there is no way in hell that they'll admit that they like it or eat any more of it. EVER. It's really great that this is the trait that we passed on so strongly, we have some other pretty good traits, do we pass those on to everyone? No. In fact, the other strongly passed on trait is my crappy eyesight, much to my husband's (20/20 vision) consternation. Kids that need glasses in the Jolley house? 4 for 4. Woohoo. Unfortunately for the most part, our other genes all seemed to have lost in the gene war, both my husband and I have green eyes and are right handed, 2 of the 4 children are blue eyed lefties, go figure.
Oh, what happened with dinner? They got some leftover chicken and when they were still hungry? They were welcome to try some of ours which, needless to say, no one did.
