When Dinner Gets Tough in my house I turn on the TV so I have some time to think about what I’m doing. The kids can drive me nuts when I’m in the kitchen cooking. Usually, when my husband gets home from work, he will play with them, talk to them and help me out. But when he’s not home and I still find that I have to get dinner on the table.
I often try to make a meal plan, just having an idea of what to make every day saves me some stress at the end of the day. Because with one child on each side of me, I just can’t think. So yea, I use the TV. As far as coming up for dinner on the spot I often revert to something easy. Rice, Grilled Cheese, Burritos and Pasta are the number 1 fall backs when it comes to getting something on the table.
I know that the statement when dinner gets tough brings different feelings to every mother. For some it’s about getting kids to eat. For me, that’s never been the problem. My kids love food as much as I do. So for me it is often about making something quick and simple. Pasta with the Ragu classic Alfredo is a known hit and so easy to prepare.
One of my Momversation friends and participants in the Ragu Community, Audrey McClelland, hosted a discussion (Ragú Monday night (8/8) at 8PM ET on the Ragu Facebook page) because, Ragu wants to hear about when dinnertime gets tough in YOUR household! Make sure to drop in at Facebook.com/ragusauce to share your stories and questions! Be sure to watch the “When Dinner Gets Tough” video with Audrey whenever you have time.
