Resolutions

A while back I reviewed a book and said that it was inspiring, so I thought I’d share the things I have resolved based on the ideas I got from French Kids Eat Everything.

1. I resolved to clean up the table and to have it set with everything at the start of dinner so that dinner will be relaxing, and I won’t have to jump up to get the things I forgot every few minutes.  I bought a nice table cloth and have been better about having everything ready at meal time, but this is still a work in progress.

Right now our table looks more like the before picture, only with a table cloth. It’s hard to know what to do with all my stuff when I don’t have a desk or any other workspace. If you have any ideas, let me know.

2. I resolved to introduce new foods to Sweet Potato each week. So far she’s tried pesto, canaloupe, and honey dew, and tonight she’s going to try seitan.  Part of this means that I will need to cook different meals on a regular basis, and that’s going pretty well so far too.

3. I’m toying with the idea of nixing snacks for myself. We’ll see if that ever happens.

I think that’s all the resolutions I made, but if I think of any more, I’ll add them.  If you read the book, what have you decided to change (or continue)?
