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.

Oh, ok, that is a new one for me, but who knows.

Bread & butter dipped in sauce or gravy is soooo good.

Does everyone drink the same thing? Do you use water bottles?

While I did have gravy growing up, I didn't learn to make it until after I got married. I learned to cook from Betty Crocker.

I don't understand.


Yes, everyone drinks the same thing...water.
We don't use water bottles at the table.

When the kids were little, we would refill their cups from our glasses. Their plastic cups held about 6 ounces and were only filled about half full. Ours are 16 ounces glasses. When they moved up to glass glasses, they got the same size glass as us. Usually by that time, 16 ounces of water is enough to last through a good part of the meal. We are all drinking water all day long so it could also be that we aren't all that thirsty at meal times. Especially since I seldom add salt while I'm cooking; salt is added by the individual at the table. Exceptions being a recipe like meatloaf where salt in added with other ingredients before cooking.

I am pretty sure that I originally said that we drink water.
