Taste Test....

So, Little Ann really likes steak when her parents make it... but not when I've tried to make it... hmm.
Anyway, I thought I'd make meatloaf and instead of having it in a loaf, putting it into cup cakes... and calling it Steak Cupcakes (in an effort to get them to try it).

I served them with french fries and peas, and told them that if they wanted dessert later they had to try two bites...

that is the general rule for them... at least while I'm in charge. So they both tried two teeny tiny little bitty nibbles, and decided they didn't like them.... Little Ann ate French Fries, Peas, and Rice Crispies for dinner, and Little Dan had Peas, Yogurt, Apple, and Peanut Butter.

At least they tried! On the menu this week is all stuff that I know they like: Pork chops, mashed potatoes, and peas; Roasted Chicken with Apples; Homemade Chicken Fingers, with Green Beans and Rice Pilaf; Friday is a free night where they can choose something frozen for me to make....and last night we had Pasta, Apple, and Garlic Bread...pretty good week of dinners.

Now I'm off to the grocery store so we will have all the right ingredients!

Cute idea! I wonder what their parents do differently with beef, huh?
