Funny the moments we mamas share ... of course mine was today with a full on fever so was accompanied by an extra bout of guilt and weepiness.

Oh, I do need this! My food processor is just too bulky to drag out all the time.

My husband and I both cook, sometimes together, sometimes we take turns. It depends on how inspired/hungry/tired/cranky we are at the tail end of a long day. I tend to be the one to set the table because it's one of the few quiet tasks I have during family time. We bring all the food to the table & I "plate" for the kids while the older two kid get drinks for themselves & the littler one. No one eats until I've had a chance to sit down, fill my own plate & say "Bon Appétit!" -- they don't always wait (especially if Dad's made french fries), but that's the rule. During dinner everyone gets a chance to tell the highlights from their day. Dinner at our house is loud, chaotic, and wonderful. We do have a few dinner rules: "You have to try" -- it's ok if you don't like lamb, or mushrooms, or whatever, but you have to try it first (without making a face!). Tastes change over time & you might find you like something now that you didn't before -- or vice versa. We don't leave the table until every one is done eating. Some people are slower eaters than others ... or chattier. (You may be excused to go to the loo, but you have to come back after washing your hands). We don't interrupt each others' stories. Even if you know why Pluto is no longer a planet, you still let your younger sibling tell the family about this exciting new bit of knowledge. LOL. I think I might be a dinner tyrant!
