Good dinners

Monday, November 7, 2011

With four kids we have a host of different palates and dietary needs. It can be hard to find meals to please all of them. Sometimes a child is left with cereal or a sandwich.

Except "Make Your Own Taco Night" I announced it this morning and was met with cheers.

This is one of those meals that the members of our family who are gluten free, dairy free, or vegetarian (or just not in the mood for meat) can find something to meet their needs.

Spanish rice, meat, beans, sauteed onions and peppers, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, and tortillas are all on the table. It becomes a free for all of kids hands scooping up their desired foods piling them on to their plates and then joyful chatter.

Nice idea! Who is gluten free and who is vegetarian in your family?

Gluten bugs my stomach and impacts Peas speech, and I just do not eat a lot of meat (like one meal a week or less)

What a great idea! I so feel like a short order cook, and it would be nice to have everyone actually eat the same thing for once...or at least only make one meal! Happy SITS day!
