LOL! Thanks for all the ideas. Don't know why I never thought of quesadillas or stir fry! Think I've got next week's menu planned already!

That's the great thing about DC. You get new ideas for old dishes. Welcome, by the way.

Burritos! I throw all the veggies into the FP and process them to very small. Then nuke some Refried beans and get the pre-browned burger out of the fridge and warm it.

Done! Serve with some sour cream and milk as the beverage.

I've never met a kis who didn't like burritos.

Dice some veggies up the same day you cook about 3 pounds of burger up. Then it's just a matter of putting everything on the counter and let them make their own burritos.

pancakes or waffles are great and kids love em. make savory or sweet. although mine always wanted sweet. bacon or sausage makes a quick protein.

My child always wants butter noodles, lettuce with ranch dressing and garlic bread.

I love the hotdogs in the pork and beans idea.... He likes both so I might try it.

Pizza made ahead of time and frozen. Pop it in the oven for a great meal!
No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

My go to is Chicken Schnitzel AKA Lemon Chicken

Thin sliced chicken breasts
Milk/Cream 1/2-1/2 what ever is on hand
Panko breadcrumbs or regular {plain or seasoned}
Grated parma or pec roman
Butter and oil for frying 2 tbsp each

Zest lemon into breadcrumbs add in cheese S+P. Mix, set aside on shallow plate.
Dip chicken into milk, press both sides into crumb mixture.
Fry in butter oil combo turning once till evenly browned

Squeeze lemon on top.

Boom Done!!

Let your child choose the veg and have him/her help {even if it's just adding the S+P} they will be more likely to eat them


Just because someone tells you that you can't do something doesn't mean you have to listen.
