I am a single mom and work full time. My son is 8 years old and before the food even hits his plate he will protest how much he dislikes what I've made for dinner. My 6 year old daughter is just like mom! She loves food, period. She enjoys the aromas, textures, and variety that is offered. I struggle with dinner now that it's just the 3 of us, because there if very little time to prepare a dinner that is exciting and tasty while getting homework completed, bathes taken, reading accomplished and dishes cleaned. I work in Human Resources for a small to medium manufacturing company. I've been with this company since I moved to the midwest in 2002. Life in the midwest is casual and family oriented. After being here for 6 years, i'm finally settling in. I miss California and the excitement it offered, as well as my family, but this is our home now.
