Just about every Saturday I do the meal plan for the week (just before grocery shop time!). Sometimes I ask the boys for input. Special requests usually include favourites such as tacos, pizza and fried rice.
The plan for this week is:
Sunday: Chinese Banquet our way
Monday: Thai Pumpkin Soup
Tuesday: Giant meatballs in a tomato sauce with salad
Wednesday: Steak and salad
Thursday: Honey soy chicken wings with rice and veg
Friday: Freezer surprise
Thai pumpkin soup is the easiest thing in the world to make. Just add a tablespoon of red curry paste to the onions when cooking (you can find loads of decent pumpkin soup recipes on google!) Son #2 HATES pumpkin, but I try him out on it every now and then. This week we had success!! I just called it Thai soup (and added a few vermicelli noodles for effect) and he gave it the thumbs up. Phew!
Do your kids absolutely refuse to eat certain foods? How do you get them to eat it?!
