In Shut Up and Eat! , humourist and parenting author Kathy Buckworth applies her razor-sharp wit to an examination of the family meal. Experts claim that sitting down to eat together can prevent children from getting into trouble while simultaneously creating close-knit families. In Buckworth's opinion, that's an awful lot to expect from a meatloaf! What about the son who thinks his food tastes better on the blue plate with the fish? Or the daughter who won't eat anything green? And let's not even talk about the mom who'd rather be doing anything but standing in front of the stove (drinking a glass of wine comes immediately to mind). Laugh-out-loud funny, more accurate than most of us would care to admitā€”and with a few recipes thrown in for good measureā€” Shut Up and Eat! is a must-read for any woman who's ever wondered: What the hell am I cooking tonight?
