I have one more suggestion for those nights that you are too tired to argue with the picky eaters or don't feel like standing over a hot stove. Try signing up for the email lists for your favorite chain restaurants. Chili's, for example, has certain days where kids under 12 eat for free as long as you buy one adult entree. So tonight, we're going out with friends and we're headed there. I've got two coupons and I'm hoping to feed the family for a pretty sweet deal. As I tell the kids - why pay for something that you can get for free?
