I’m not sure if you and your family runs into drama at dinner time or if it’s only me. The first thing that happens when I start dinner is my boys want to know what we’re having. Not just out of curiosity, but because they are going to try to figure out if they’re going to like dinner or not.Thankfully when we have Barber Foods Seasoned Selects the drama is at a dull roar. The complaints typically come from the side dishes.
So, what kind of drama am I talking about? Not the fun and amusing kind. More like my 7you throwing up because he’s thought about the food in front of him for so long he’s psyched himself out.
When I decided to make the Simple & Delicious Angel Hair Pasta featured as a side dish at Barber Foods, I figured there’d be drama involved. Guess what? There wasn’t. My 11yo isn’t a noodle eater so I didn’t even offer it to him, but my 7yo, the puker, scooped a spoonful onto his plate. To say I cringed would be putting it mildly.
Get this, the puker ate it ALL. Ok, he neglected to scoop up the tomatoes, but he ate the spinach with NO drama! I kept telling him how proud I was of him with every bite I took. My boys are starting to see that if they try something and don’t like it, that’s ok. It’s the fact that they even try something that makes the difference.

*As a side note, these make fantastic meals for college students. My daughter can take them out of the box and stick them in her little mini-fridge freezer.
