  1. Well, this post cracks me up. I own this duo of cookbooks by Meta Givens and my children always got a kick out of the “coffee for adults, milk for children” line attached to each meal :O)

    It’s one of my favorite books!

  2. I get a kick out the coffee/milk thing too. I also wonder why once a week “Milk for all” shows up. I actually own her 2 book set as well. The menu in there is shorter I think…just one with lots of choices. The chapter in this one about feeding children completely cracks me up. I also really love how Sunday has a different structure to meals altogether.
