We have never posted someone else’s work here in lieu of our own, but I’m making an exception and giving you this link because, well, it’s the funniest thing on feeding young kids I’ve ever read. And it’s also about exactly what we’re doing here: building a family food culture, one day, one meal at a time–which can be, as Frazier implies, a job of biblical proportion with apocalyptic consequence and no shortage of revelation.
Read it and laught til you weep. And then come back here and for more ideas about how to feed those unruly, ungrateful kids another meal.
I didn’t even have kids yet when this was first published, and it made me laugh and laugh. I am laughing much more knowingly now.
we still have a tattered photocopy of this from when it first came out. Periodically I try to read it out loud to someone but I inevitably start laughing too hard to do it.
