After working all day and dealing with life in general (eeps!) … sometimes I’m too tired or stressed to negotiate dining peacefully with my kiddo.
So, when I don’t feel like fooling around I stay clear of steak, burgers, spinach and lasagna—just a few foods JD will eat, but doesn’t love to eat.
My go-to, no fail, healthful dinner these days is cheese tortollini, broccoli (frozen or fresh) tossed in olive oil and pecorino-romano cheese with a side salad of “crunchy” romaine, black olives, garbanzo beans (packed with protein) and tomatoes dressed in olive oil and red wine vinegar.
Last night he asked to take the leftovers for lunch: “Can I have cheese rings and trees for lunch,” he asked.
What is your no fail dinner? Are you a clean-your-plate-kind-of-parent? Please share.
