The (dinner) matrix

Dinner – that blessed time of day when families gather to share thoughts, experiences, and food. That is if they’re willing to share food.

I have spent the last 15 years of my life trying to get nutritious food into three children with wildly differing tastes. One will eat vegetables all day, but virtually no fruit. One eats fruit by the pound, but skips most of the vegetables. One eats neither. And then, in a twist that I will never understand, two of them will eat oddities like mussels and escargot. The nerve!
