Book I Just FInished: Dinner: A Love Story

I just finished a book I loved!  However, you may remember that Glenn wrote one of my New Years Resolutions for me, and that it was to read 50 books this year and cookbooks don't count.  Well, this one was a cookbook (with lots of interesting chapters besides the recipes) and so I didn't record that I read it on goodreads, since that is how I am keeping track for my NYR.  I didn't want to forget that I read and loved this though, so I thought I'd post about it.
Like I said, this book isn't all recipes.  In fact, I'd say at least half of the pages are stories about the author's road to having a good family dinner every night that her kids will eat.  Also, the recipes all looked amazing.  Most importantly, I didn't feel like a bad mom at the end of it like I did after reading French Kids Eat Everything.  After reading this book, I do feel like we don't eat enough fish.  I'm going to make it an unofficial NYR to cook some sort of seafood once a week this year (except in February, obviously) (also except when we are in AZ).  I'm going to start with the Greek style shrimp with feta from this book!  It looks amazing!


  1. Don't exempt your AZ weeks! Dad and I have eaten fish 4 out of the last 5 days (today we missed).

    1. I actually totally thought that you should read it! It is divided into 3 parts: before kids, while your kids are hellions, and then once they are over 3 and you can actually make them sit at the table and eat. Anyway, I thought of you while I was reading the first part.
