I get so tired of eating the same things over and over, but the problem is that when I look at recipes, there are not a lot of them that actually look good. A lot of them seem like the same things that I already make, or they are things that no one in my family would like.
One of the hardest things for me to do is to come up with new things to make that everyone would like. My husband likes almost anything, but my kids are very picky. If a try new recipes, my husband and I will always eat them, but my kids will not. They will often look at the dinner I’ve prepared and stick their noses up. They will then eat a salad or a sandwich instead. This drives me nuts and it makes me not want to even try making new things.
The point of me cooking meals is to provide my family with good things to eat and with things that are nutritious, but if they won’t eat these things, why do I bother making them? I know I am not alone. There are many mothers out there that have this same problem.
The other common problem I have is that it takes me trying about 10 recipes to find one that I really love. Some of them might be good, but I really only like making things that are exceptionally good. I want everything I make to be good enough to serve to guests that come over.
