my wife has dedicated every second of her life to making sure our son is ok, and well fed. unfortunately, that leaves just about all of the other house and yard work and daily responsibilities up to me.
i must say tho, everyone who said mom's don't get a sick day or a day off weren't kidding. dw has sacrificed everything, all day long. because of it, we have a very happy, affectionate, and healthy boy (that's a good eater
). i may joke around about her, but dw is a great mom, and i couldn't have asked for a better mother for my son.
so, since she knows that i will make or pick up dinner everyday, and often lunch for she and i, dw is then free to cook just for our boy.
pasta with tomato sauce and grated parm cheese, or pasta with butter and either parm or cottage cheese is almost a daily thing. often it is served as a side with meatballs, sweet italian sausages, or veal and peppers, cut into small chunks or minced. and everything has to have extra sauce on it.
he even love spinach and cheese raviolis, or potato and cheese pierogies, of course with melted butter.
when he gets tired of pasta, we usually feed him mashed potatoes. with mashed are ham steaks, hamburgers or hot dogs, chicken nuggets, or fish sticks.
recently, we've discovered he likes eggs almost any way, like over easy, hard boiled, or in a cheese omellette.
if we're out somewhere, we'll get him pizza. pork ribs and pulled pork sandwiches are good too. just don't let him see french fries. he won't eat anything else if he sees fries.
the one thing we've never had a problem feeding him are fruits and veggies. he loves grapes, oranges, bananas, and apples. a small bowl of halved grapes, citrus supremes, and banana or apple slices are usually served as an appy before dinner.
then, he'll eat a cored whole tomato, or raw red bell pepper, or boiled corn sliced from the cob, or steamed carrots, or even blanched broccoli in italian dressing.
finally, he gets the aforementioned meats and starches.
