(topcatny @ Feb. 17 2005,13:00) My wife , the one who really knows how to cook is out of town. So I had 4 pieces of Fried Chicken from the grocery store and Coors Light.  In hindsight I should have just shared my daughters dinner, pureed beef & vegetables and applesauce with strawberries for dessert.  it most likely would have tasted better than mine.
sounds good. soon you will enter the exciting world of chicken nugets.
ahhhh.....chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, macaroni & cheese and peanut butter & jelly. Those foods I look forward to sharing with her.

I can't tell if you're serious... In any case, children will surprise you. Don't assume they will necessarily want McD. or macaroni and cheese (although it can be delicious if homemade). My son had asparagus and satay chicken (coconut milk based marinade with cumin, coriander, garlic, etc.) with a peanut sauce for dinner last night. He's 2 1/2.

My parents would serve what they wanted to serve, and if my sister or I didn't want to eat it, we had to make our own dinner. It worked two ways: we aren't afraid to try new things and aren't afraid of cooking. Even a little kid gets sick of making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Last night: Salmon with a lemon/butter/dill sauce Cooked spinich with scallions, garlic and peas Honeydew

Oh, thanks for the tip. I'll remember that one.

I actually am serious. Those are foods I enjoy from time to time. I don't expect my daughter to only like those foods. Both my wife and I enjoy many different types of cuisine and cheeses, lots of cheeses and we plan on introducing these things to her early, so she will never think it is unusual. She is pretty easy going and I don't really forsee a problem. Either way it will be fun.

Good plan. Our son loves cheese, all kinds. Even the strongest tasting ones, which came as a real surprise. He will eat chunks of Italian parmesan, astringent goat cheese, and boursin, of all things. He also has his American side: a piece of bread with peanut butter spread on it is a treat for him. At the daycare, he watches what the other kids eat and asks questions (in French, that way nobody gets offended): - Mommy, what is this? (pointing to multicolored cereal) - It's cereal. - But, it's purple . And the reverse: my son comes in with grapes in a little container. One of the other kids asks: What is THAT.??

Being experimental; Tuna with a jerk rub and an orange juice and balsamic mixture. Had to rush off to a late class so no veggies. Tonight looking to try out southern fried jerk chicken recipe.

Could anyone recommend a wine that easily attain and modesty priced. Preferably one that goes with spicy food, that conversely could be drunk alone, any good wine will do

It is kind of sad that one of the kids did not know what grapes were. I bet theycould name all the cereals and oreos etc. though My wife was exposed to all sorts of foods at an early age, that her friends, and myself, were not. Her mother and grandparents were from Italy so they were always feeding her different things than the average american household. There is a picture of my wife eating pigs feet in her high chair and her grandmother used to give her a snack at night of olives and parmigiano-reggiano, when other kids got milk and cookies. Then again her favorite cereal was frosted flakes. So I am sure we will strike a balance there.

Wow - that's sad that a kid wouldn't know what grapes are. My son - 19 months old - love grapes and blueberries. I bribed him into eating all of his dinner the other night by interspacing blueberries throughout the meal. He kept pointing at the container and saying "more" and I'd make him eat another bite of food before giving him a couple more blueberries. Luckily, both my wife and I like all sorts of foods, so we're just exposing him to different things as a matter of course. Bradford

good luck with that. my son eat all sorts of intersting stuff - up until he was about 2 1/2. I have a great picture of him at 1 eating ramen noodle soup in wagamama with a chopstick in each hand. for the past 8 months he has eaten bread, chicken nugets (homemade resteraunt, or other), vegetables, fruits, yogurt, pasta, rice, milk and cookies. that is it. he is very happy to sit in a great chinese resteraunt and eat white rice while the plates go over his head. I imagine that it will stop soon enough, but that is where we are at now.

And probably too early to make him cook his own dinner.

I'm sure it will pass. We have kind of the reverse situation, as he used to be very, very picky. He still is, but will absolutely try something new, especially... if it's on his father's plate. Or mine. I have a German friend who says that, for almost a year, all her daughter would eat, at age 3, was chicken nuggets from Mc Donald's. She bought frozen ones, she made them herself. No, they had to be from Mc Donalds. And she was the kind of kid who could go without eating all day if she didn't get the correct nuggets...

I was at a trade show a while back in Berlin, and we went to a traditional austrian resteraunt. One of the women in the sales team, german, maybe 30, was delighted to order shnitzel. she said that as a child it was all she ever ate, but hadn't eaten it for many years. I found that very cute, as it seemed to me a very german food. one of our friends has a son who will only eat raw foods. he won't eat meat or starches - just vegitables, nuts and fruits. I am sure that will pass, too.
