I'm a bon vivant. I like to cook, have wine, friends over, and long meals. My wife almost views eating as another task that needs to get done as quickly as possible (don't tell her that I'm sharing this). We have young kids, so there's time pressure. I'm trying to cook interesting things to develop my 6 and almost 4 year old's palates. I'm pretty good at getting food on the table in a timely manner, but it does bring up conflict. My wife is always happy with what I cook, but gripes about the effort and the time. If she cooks, it's hot dogs, mac and cheese, and stouffers lasagna. Things from shiny boxes. The kids love that crap, but my daughter is starting to get it. Anyone else have these issues?
