Meal-times are always a gamble in my home. As I have written before, sometimes the beasts like what’s presented, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes they eat the first portion, and disdain the second. And there is Parker’s on-going struggle.
Now and then, however, I achieve victory. Now and then, everyone is hungry, everyone likes what he is given, everyone is pleased. Sometimes, they are so hungry, even what normally would be distractions are ignored. Concentration is given to the food, and concentration is not broken until hunger is abated, appetite sated, and food is gone. Those are good days and everybody, man and beast, is happy.
