My kids are having friends over this weekend. This always poses a bit of a food quandry for me. My kids’ friends seem only to like food that comes from a box: chicken nuggets, fish sticks, frozen pizza, oreos. I might decide to make chicken with noodles (homemade) and I hear a chorus of “ugh… what’s that?”. Yep, they are picky and a bit rude, too! Disheartening after having cooked and cooled a whole chicken, picked the meat off the bones, mixed flour, water, salt, and eggs, to make the noodles, stood over a hot pot of boiling water to cook them, and made the gravy. (After this long process one boy said “it’s okay, but my mom makes this kind that comes in a blue can, and it’s way better”)
They remind of the cashiers at walmart, asking “what is this?” for each produce item they ring up.
It makes me think “what the hell?” Does no one cook anymore?
