The majority of the week we have “family dinner.” Aside from Thursday night, when the kids have Scouts. I usually serve them up a grilled cheese and worry about my husband and myself later. Now family dinner is ALWAYS a challenge. I have to figure out something everyone will like, not just the kids, my husband included. It’s a balancing act actually. All four of those boys like different things. I sometimes serve two different veggies, knowing one kid (or adult kid) will absolutely NOT eat asparagus or frozen corn. Even on nights where I just make something for the kids, making something for both my husband and I is a pain. See, I have a more extended palette. I ENJOY healthy foods that he turns his nose up to. So when the rare opportunity arises where I just get to make dinner for MYSELF, I LOVE IT!!
Last night, while my husband had leftovers and my kids had soup I did a workout and then made MYSELF dinner. It was delicious!
I shredded up a sweet potato and some brussel sprouts, and added some finely diced red onion, salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder. I tossed it in the saute pan with some olive oil and let it cook till it began to brown up. I served it with a over-easy egg.
YUM! Protein and veggies. It was the perfect after-workout dinner. So easy and no one whining in my ear about the green stuff.
What do you enjoy making just for yourself that your family won’t eat?
