Switching it up

Ahh the old picky eater dilemma...even with a husband who is firmly in the "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit" it wears on your brain! Peanut has now not eaten dinner 3 out of the last 4 days. Sometimes I want to give up, mack her mac and cheese and move, or buy ear plugs! I also feel her pickiness is rubbing off on my formerly stellar eater. That is even more frustrating because from birth until around age 3 he ate anything and everything we put in front of him. Now we're even having trouble with the Good Dinosaur rule: "we try everything at least one small bite!"

Oh well hopefully today we will win them over, because it's my former roomies favorite night, Dinner for Breakfast! Yes the dinner I hated with such passion has been introduced in my house. And while it's still not my favorite it usually wins the kids over and gets them to eat! Tonight's menu:

Quick and Easy Crepes (from Betty Crocker)
Bananas Foster and Chocolate
Caramelized Apples
Bacon (of course)

Hopefully there will be less yelling tonight. So I am off to pre make the dough so I can get a run in before dinner, I couldn't get up this morning to do it since Peanut was up at 21 asking to eat (since she didn't eat dinner). It's days like this that make me wonder if running a marathon will be possible....I feel like I run one everyday already!
