I emphasize the word CHEAP. I can't afford a bunch of ingredients and being a working mom like I am, I need something simple, as in something that doesn't require me to stand over the stove and babysit the cooking for an hour. Both kids are absolutely sick of everything I make. They don't like chicken, pork chops, steak, or pot roast. All four are pretty inexpensive and very easy to make. Just pop em in the oven or slow cooker and their done. Nice and simple just the way I like it. Grilled cheese and soup is no longer an alternative either. Spaghetti is the only thing they both agree they like, but I can only stomach spaghetti one night a week. Unfortunately the kiddos don't appreciate my cooking at all and would rather have fast food every night instead of home made meals (typical.) We already do fast food several times a week and I refuse to go out more than we do. I am running out of ideas fast on what I can make that they will actually eat. difficult child 2 will actually skip dinner altogether and he'd rather starve than eat the meals I prepare. Anybody have any new kid-friendly recipes they'd like to share?
