LIVING

With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Another kids dinner

With Nathan out-of-town on business I know my dinner plans will be minimal. So to make it even easier on myself I just ask they boys what they want.

Charlie: mac and cheese

Gage: pizza

Charlie’s is super easy – I break out the Kraft. Then he asked for a pizza too.

For Gage I use their special bread. I spread on some pizza sauce, sprinkle on some mozzarella  cheese and lay it right on the oven rack. I bake it for around 5-8 min at 350 degrees. Just enough to melt the cheese  and make the bread crusty.

Easiest dinner than last night! Not as healthy though.

hmmmm what does this pregnant belly want to eat?

Super Healthy, Super Easy Supper!

Kids don’t like things mixed together. Forget about casseroles. Especially if you have EE.

I made the easiest dinner for the boys last night!

We had some left over Pillsbury crescent rolls. I cut them open and laid a slice of Velveeta on them. I warmed up a hot dog, cut it lengthwise then again in half. Laying the cut side on the cheese I put the top on allowing the warm hotdog to melt the cheese. While that was happening I broke out the veggies. Some carrots, broccoli, and tomatoes.  Added a little fat-free Kraft ranch dressing for a dipping sauce and I was done! But wait, what about some fruit to balance this meal out?  I cut up a banana, thawed out some strawberries and cut them up and dumped in a small can of mandarin oranges. I then sprinkled it with some sugar and put it in the fridge to chill while they ate their dinner.

It took a little coaxing on all the veggies but they cleaned their plates and gobbled up the fruit! My kids are both allergic to a lot of veggies and fruit. Have your list of what your kids can eat handy and pick from that to create their healthy easy dinner plate and fruit bowl. We are just now able to eat the fat-free ranch dressing and hot dogs. There’s egg in regular dressing and most hot dots have tons of things we can’t have.  You could mix some sour cream with bacon bits and chill for an hour or so allowing the bacon bits flavor to sink into the sour cream. I know Tastefully Simple has a lot of dry dip mixes you can get. Just add them to sour cream or if you can have egg use mayonnaise.

I felt really good knowing they both had a healthy dinner in their bellies. Nathan and I had left over burritos. He wasn’t as happy. 😉
