LIVING

With EoE, Allergies, Asthma and a G-Tube

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. 😉

Just Grillin’

Grilled out last night. I think that is going to be the easiest dinner for me to make to include everyone. My husband and I had italian sausage. He put some chicken on for the boys. He then grilled some zucchini with red and yellow peppers. We added a little italian dressing to the veggies. Everyone ate and mommy was so happy!

Tonight might be a little tougher. Tacos or a pasta dish? Including Gage in one of these meals is going to be hard. We’ll see what the day brings and how much time and effort I’m going to have once dinner gets here.
