With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

Pizza by picture

Once I had decided on chicken for the boys dinner they declared they wanted pizza. Knowing they probably wouldn’t eat the chicken if I made it I went ahead and made them pizza. Charlie had a Boboli crust and Gage had a Chebe crust. http://www.chebe.com/Home.aspx I had both on hand in the freezer ready to go.

I topped each with sauce, black olives and mushrooms.

Added lots of cheese!

Then baked. Super easy. Once cooled a bit I cut them into triangles and served with a chebe bread stick. The boys don’t notice that their pizza looks a little different. If they do they never ask why.

Getting Funky with the Quesadillas

I’ve never ventured outside of cheese for the boys quesadillas. I have on occasion cut up some teeny tiny pieces of meat and hid it in there. Today – I went all out. With Gage now wheat free I had to get him some corn quesadillas.

First I cooked up some black beans and mashed them just a bit. With Charlie being able to eat beans now I can expand some of their meals and sneak in some extra fiber. I spooned some of that onto the wheat and corn quesadillas. Topped it with a few spoonfuls of canned sweet corn and black olives. I finished up with mozzarella and cheddar cheese. I cook each on their own hot skillet, don’t want  to cross contaminate. Flip a few times and it’s done!

I always garnish their plates with sour cream, mild safe salsa and some mashed up avocado. They typically will only eat the sour cream, but they always try out the other dips.

At first they were both a little unsure about what I had done to their quesadillas but the more they ate the more they liked them! I was pretty excited to get them to eat it!
