If your children are anything like mine, I am sure that here are times when dinner is a struggle. One child loves spaghetti while other hates it and refuses to eat it. One child loves ice cream and the other will not touch the stuff (believe it or not my oldest will not eat ice cream). So how do you make everyone happy? You don’t! The rule in my house is, “If you don’t like what’s for dinner, dinner’s over.” Actually, I make my children try at least one bite of everything then choose one thing to finish. That way they have to at least taste it before they decide not to eat it. Some days it works better than others. Halloween is one of those days.
Potato Worms (Twice Baked Potatoes)
On Halloween my children love to eat anything that is ghoulish and gross. That is why I try to make it a point to give them something disgustingly healthy before we go trick or treating. Tonight it is cheese covered potato worms (twice baked potatoes), scabs and boogers (green bean casserole), and rotted wood planks (pork roast). My girls are just as excited about dinner as they are about all the candy they will be getting tonight.
