    My step daughter starts pestering about what’s-the-next-meal almost as soon as she finishes eating, so I’ve come u with some creative answers


    One of my favorites was *Buttcheese Casserole"

    My mom always said, “windballs and air pudding.”

    I’ve gotten my daughters to stop asking “What’s for dinner?” Every time they asked, I give them the same answer: “Food.” If they asked, “What kind of food?” I’d say, “The edible kind.” When they discovered that my answer NEVER changed, they stopped asking.

    One that always worked with our daughters was: Why don’t you hang around and help us make it and then you will know !
    They left the house running !!!

    I cooked up a lb of ground beef, 3 chopped cooked potatoes and 3 sliced onions — stirred it all together in a big skillet for a while. When they asked what we were having, I said “garbage.”
    .
    It’s still their favorite dish!

    the way I heard it was, “Wait and see, Puddin’.”

    I had a bad habit of asking mom what was for dinner. She cured it by making me help her cook. lol

    Our answers were “Food” and “Good Food.” They stopped asking so long ago I needed your post to remind me.

    My mom used to say, “Layovers to catch meddlers!”
    Sometimes, like K. C. Fahel, I do this with the askers:
    “What’s for dinner?”
    “Food.”
    “What kind of food?”
    “Eatin’ food!”
    But I like that “Come help me fix it and you’ll see!” thing.

    My mother did the same thing. Usually it meant she didn’t know herself yet what she planned to make, otherwise she’d tell us, only she’d say, “I’m having…” and I wondered why she worded it that way. Then I’d say, “What are the rest of us having?”

    K.C. Fahel: Our kids would have replied, “Edible, but not palatable?” We went with the help response.
