Stir Fryday

Get it? Stir Fryday, like Friday... tee hee! Okay you get it.

So I have been trying to be better about trying to find meals that the kids will actually eat, that are healthy, and that I can eat too, that way I'm not preparing several meals every night.

In the past week I have made Pork Chops with mashed potatoes and peas (Little Ann like the whole meal! Little Dan liked the peas, and I ended up making him Chicken Nuggets instead). Then I tried to do Roasted Chicken with pasta and apples (They both liked it all)!! Next up was Stir Fry with steak instead of chicken (Little Ann liked the steak, but didn't want too much of it, and she also loved the rice. Little Dan liked the rice and not so much the steak, I gave him so of the left over chicken from the previous day. They both liked the shredded carrots in the stir fry veggies).

So what I'm wondering is if everyone can remember what their favorite meal was when they were kids, and let me know. I have got to get these guys to eat more of a healthful variety of food, or I'm going to go crazy!! Let me know if any of you have any ideas for me. Thanks!

I think the pork chops, taters and peas is pretty close. My stepson was a nut for corn too... Good luck!

Hey - those are some pretty red plates! You girls loved hambergers with "salad" on top (lettuce & tomatoe). Make your pizzas, tacos or any mexican. Casseroles.

Funny title :) g
