I'm getting tired of the picky eater discussion, lol.


What are the *regular* foods that you set at the table at meal time?


When I was a kid, my dad didn't consider the table set unless there was bread and butter out...and milk.


When my kids were younger, we always set bread and pb on the table, as an option.

Ours too. Tap water here.


I wash & re-use our soda bottles, the pepsi, mt. dew, dr. pepper and cocacola are all more sturdy than alot (not all) of the water bottles for repeated use and that way they get used for awhile instead of recycling right away.

We don't have soda bottles. The kids and dh don't drink it, except as a treat.

Always have to enjoy something delish to drink w/or w/out meals.


Oh, I love my biscuits dipped or covered in gravy, garlic toast or garlic bread sticks in garlic butter or prefer marinara sauce, rolls dipped in brown gravy, oohhh, yes.


My dh loves garlic bread in olive oil.


I also agree the fruit & yogurt can be a meal (or a snack). I count my graham crackers and banana on the go as a meal. That is my lunch on my 1 day out during the week.

Me too, I pour the glasses of milk or water, depending on the person. The milk goes back in the fridge & if anyone wants more they serve themselves more.

I crave variety, so there are no regular foods on my table. I have no "rotation" and I do not plan a week's menus in advance. The only thing you are guaranteed to see on my table is silverware and napkins, in the appropriate positions.

<Another plus for the ricer. I don't peel the potatoes. Put them in the ricer skins and all, the potato gets pushed threw the ricer, the skins that are left behind are discarded. >

We make "dirty" mashed potatoes - we mash them up with the skins included. My DH thinks it tastes weird to eat mashed potatoes without the skins, LOL.
I love mashed potatoes in all forms: lumpy, smooth, peeled, unpeeled, plain, with toppings or gravy... Mmmm, mashed potatoes. :-)

But you do have to cut the potatoes in half and put the flesh side down so you are pushing it out of the skin.
