. We sometimes cook without the kids help, & when we do they are constantly nagging, "When are we eating, what are we eating?" So I make things up & say, "Soap on a Rope", "Lump on a Clump". When we made this particular dinner, I told them Lump on a Clump. They loved it, & ask for it just like that every once in a while. The CLUMP is mashed potatoes, the LUMP is steak, it is surrounded by whole kernel corn. Have fun cooking (with or without the kids), but find a fun way to include them in the way you talk about the meal or how you serve it. Play With Your Food ! XO .
