Happy Dinners

So we have tried out some new dinners this week and I thought I would share some of the favorites the boys actually ate :) Well..not every bite, but they did eat them and I even heard a "yummy" a couple times from JAE.

First up we have London Broil. We had this on Sunday with rice and carrots. The meat wasn't a huge hit with the little ones, but the husband liked this. Of course he had to add something lol and so ours also included a packet of beefy onion soup/dip mix for slow cookers.


Earlier in the week we had Stir-fried Pineapple Chicken with rice

JAE ate the chicken, pineapple and the rice! JD skipped the rice, but enjoyed the rest. Husband added some terryaki sauce to his rice but if you made it a little more liquidy and poor the extra on the rice I'm sure that would be fine too.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

(Didn't use sherry or mushrooms)

This night I also bribed them with goldfish crackers, but JD actually wanted to eat more to get more goldfish rather then just beg for the goldfish LOL JAE ate all the chicken..skipped the noodles which was odd.

Spaghetti and Meatballs

(only used cow meat)

JAE loved the meatballs! JD was his normal picky self, but did eat some of the meat.

Last night we had hamburgers. I mixed bbq sauce into the hamburger meat before cooking and then made mini burgers/cheeseburgers for the boys and placed them on a mini bagel. JD ATE 3/4 OF HIS!!! JAE took a few bites. Now these kids usually only like chicken or turkey so I wasn't shocked that JAE didn't want to much, but was very excited JD ate so much of his!
