“Fifteen packets of ketchup, please”
An anonymous arm dutifully held the hot greasy bag out the window as I watched from the back seat. That, folks, pretty much sums up mealtime when my dad was in charge growing up. As you can imagine, things look a **little** different around here.
One night – I kid you not – my husband was teasing me about picking up something from Taco Bell or KFC because I didn’t feel like cooking. Katie’s response? “Dad, STOP! Those aren’t real places!”
Some things never change, though, like how much kids love ketchup. My little potami will eat it on ANYTHING, so I pull it out whenever a dish is moving a little slow on their plate. It’s kind of like a magic trick, you know? Kid doesn’t like dinner? Put some homemade ketchup on the table and POOF it’s gone!
