This Is My Meatloaf

It apparently is so vile that when the Boy had the required bite in order to advance to dessert, his face contorted and his limbs jerked as though he was having a seizure.

Kids can be very hard on one's ego.

I've seen that face and body jerking before. At those moments, I understand how my poor Mother felt. I don't care...her liver and onions still gets that reaction from me. I don't care how much ketchup you put on that stuff...you can't hide that flavor. Just the thought of it makes my gag reflex kick in. Remember that kids have more sensitive taste buds...as they get older, they enjoy more things. Just try not to take it personally. Heck, it looks good to me...I'd eat your meatloaf.

I'm sure it's not *your* meatloaf in particular; maybe he just doesn't like meatloaf. I know I can't stand it--the texture is too squishy. Blech. Like bananas. I can't eat bananas either.
My poor stepmother---one of my brothers and I were the pickiest of picky eaters, whereas the other brother would eat almost anything. The only exceptions were sauekraut and Chee-tos dipped in butter (we used to make a game of trying to find things he wouldn't eat!).
Your meatloaf looks lovely.

Awww man I wish I was there. I LOVE meatloaf and yours looks pretty darn good. Kids change and given time he will grow to love it.

It looks pretty delicious. How is the Boy doing these days? Long time since I heard much about him.

I feel your pain. I've endured 17 years of "Do I have to eat that?" However, they've learned that, yes, they have to eat that or they will have to endure a guilt enducing screeching. I too, can use a tantrum to my advantage. hehe

You'd think that they would outgrow this.
Not here.

I hate, I mean despise, cooking for this reason.

Long live toast.

Do you put onions in it? Is so he may be reacting to the taste of them some kids, often boys, seem to have an aversion to strong flavours. Will he eat hamburgers?

You meat loaf looks fine to me, with a baked potato, and some steamed peas.... yummy.

Thank you, everyone, for soothing my hurt feelings over my meatloaf.
I happen to think it's very tasty.
The Boy doesn't like much of anything right now. He eats a lot of peanut butter.

HEY! I ate a lot of that meatloaf and liked it. Had for lunch the next day too.

I'm sorry Peter, but I'm so used to your fussiness I don't really believe you actually liked it.
But thank you for pretending!
