Main Dish: Waffles

Dessert: W-shaped Watermelons

Recipe:

Ingredients:

Waffles:

  1. Frozen kind = the easiest kind!

Outcome:watermelon for kids

Easy, Easy, Easy! You can never go wrong with breakfast for dinner!  Also, cutting the fruit up in the shape of a “W” makes the kids that much more excited about eating it.  They even had a contest of taking bites out of the watermelon until it looked like a “V”.  It was very cute!

The Meal: Sandwiches for Kids

Main Dish: Sandwiches 

Dessert: Strawberries 

Recipe:

Ingredients:

Sandwiches:

  1. Bread (I used Challah Bread)
  2. American Cheese
  3. Mozzarella Cheese
  4. Yellow Pepper
  5. Medium Yellow Onion
  6. Butter

Strawberries:

  1. 1 package of Strawberries (cut into halves)

Cooking Directions:

Sandwiches:

  • Cut bread into slices
  • Spread the butter on the inside of each slice
  • Place a piece of American Cheese on one side of the bread
  • Sautee sliced up pepper and onion
  • Place as many pieces of pepper and onion on each sandwich
  • Add more cheese on top of peppers and onions
  • Place top bread slice on top
  • Put in a Panini maker until toasted

Outcome:

As a child (and picky eater myself), I lived on Grilled Cheese.  Most kids I know, will eat a cheese sandwich.  This is a great way to get your child to eat dinner, and include some veggies in it!  Also, making the sandwich in a Panini Maker, just seems to make it all the better and more appetizing!

  1. 2 Quinces
  2. Brown Sugar
  3. Honey

Cooking Directions:

Quesadilla Directions:

  • Sautee Mushrooms. Onions and Margarine on the stove  (I add a pinch of salt)- when cooked, take off stove and let cool
  • Place Tortillas on a foil paper and spread cheese around the middle
  • Spread a tiny bit of Margarine on the edges of the Tortillas (this will help it stick)
  • Spoon Mushrooms and Onions onto Tortillas (I leave the kids Quesadillas plain with just the cheese)
  • Put in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until cheese has melted

Quince Directions:

quinces for kids

  • Peel Quinces and cut around the core into slices
  • Put slices into a baking pan
  • Sprinkle a bit of Brown Sugar over the slices
  • Drizzle the honey over the slices
  • Bake in the oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes

Outcome:

We make this often, so I already knew the quesadillas would be a winner.  None of us have ever eaten a quince before so I was nervous to have it as dessert which is why I added the sweet sugar and honey.   I can tell you that both kids and I loved it (hubby not into the fruit so much)!  It would have been amazing served on some ice-cream I am sure, but I didn’t want to overdo the sweets right before bed 🙂
