Food tip of the month: If you have a picky eater, you already know not to become a short order cook: catering to requests and serving the same handful of things in rotation. However, it IS smart to cater to tastes by switching out something that’ll be an immediate turn-off. This soup was served three different ways: with plenty of chard for the leafy green lovers (and Alex who’ll eat just about anything), peas for the chard-averse (Jack), and separated veggies for the cuppa-soup drinker in our house (Lola). There are tons of ways we nudge Jack (and Lola) to try something new/previously rejected, but putting it front and centre is a set-up for a dinner fail.
Biggest hit this month: Spaghetti and meatballs. Lola kept asking for ‘more bobas’ even after she’d finished dessert. Woot!
Best shortcut meal: Mish mash. Also known as leftovers or fridge-cleanout-night.
Biggest fail: Sausages and rice. An attempt at a quickie shortcut that turned out more bland than quick. I’ve been off sausages since my last post-dinner ‘morning sickness’, and every time I think ‘Maybe this time!’, I’m reminded ‘NOPE’.
