Everyone should eat well. Children should be exposed to a wide variety of foods and we should cook more and avoid overprocessed meals. Sitting down to a meal together is something that is sadly on the wane. We do it as often a possible.
Well the boy asked for crab legs tonight. I so wanted to get them for him, but at $10.99 a pound, I wasn't going to make them the entire dinner. SO, since it is soccer night, and our traditional soccer night meal has been grilled steak salad, I decided to do both. We made the salad and I got a couple of clusters for him. (we helped:) In retrospect, the steak was pretty pricey too, but I know it was much less than I would have spent on the crab. With the leftover steak, he will be having steak and eggs for breakfast. Best thing about the meal, which made the extra I spent on the crab totally worth it, was to see the grinning gusto with which the boy ate his crab! I would have spent millions on that.
