Very busy, working all day, have to work all evening. Suggested above. Dsd, 10, disgusted as 'not enough'. Dp via phone agreed with dsd - not around to help - usually does more than his share tbh. What is wrong with it? Surely it is better than what I did feed her which was chippy chips and a fish cake?

Beans on toast is fine, and if she had some fruit would be a balanced meal.

Top favourite dinner in our house. Everyone is always very happy with it. Give her another slice of toast. Is she just trying to wind you up?

Tell us what you all ate last night and on Sunday and then i'll decide whether YAbu or not.

Can't decide from just one meal.

Nothing wrong with it, I quite like it every now and then if im not that hungry or just cant be arsed.

Suppose it wouldnt have taken that long to add a fried egg or something to it though and how long did it take to go out to the chippy?

But on the whole YANBU

It was on offer here tonight but the Dds went for tuna sandwiches.

Good balanced meal I think. Especially with wholemeal bread, bit of salad, and fruit. Beans packed with protein.

B on T is a well balanced low fat tasty meal actually...2 slices sprinkled with cheese lovely!

Only if you serve bear as a starter.

And only if dairylea on toast (Royle style) normally.

Smug - hmmmmm yesterday was sausages, mash, broccoli, peas, carrots, cabbage

Day before was gammon, veg and potatoes

I think she was not winding me up. Beans on toast is a lunch apparently. I offered her plenty - three slices of toast and a tin of beans was on offer. With grapes and strawberries for afterwards

I frequently have beans on toast and love it. Can you add a sausage to keep the peace?

AgentZigzag Tue 02-Aug-11 20:03:35

Missed a 'you have' out of the second line.

Shoot me now.

AuntieMaggie Tue 02-Aug-11 20:04:02

mmmm I love beans on toast with either a fried or scrambled egg and ketchup!

readywithwellies Tue 02-Aug-11 20:04:08

Amber she doesn't like eggs. It is the lack of meat/fish I think

Whatmeworry Tue 02-Aug-11 20:04:30

Did you offer it with a fruit shoot grin

mollymole Tue 02-Aug-11 20:04:40

very nice here too - how about putting an egg on it to add some protien

chicletteeth Tue 02-Aug-11 20:05:09

Beans on toast is fab fab fab grin

I love beans.

However, I agree with notsuchasmug it really depends on what's been eaten in previous nights.

If no proper meal for a few days, then I can understand the response.

Thumbs up to beans on toast, with melted cheddar and chilli flakes on top

Mumcentreplus Tue 02-Aug-11 20:05:31

nice with a couple of grilled fish-fingers or a 2 eggs under the beans

chicletteeth Tue 02-Aug-11 20:06:19

Just read your post re previous dinners.

She IBU.

She's winding you up surely.

10 year olds can make their own dinner surely

if she's so disgusted point her in the direction of the kitchen and get her to make some toast, sandwiches or soemthing else


readywithwellies Tue 02-Aug-11 20:06:46

Leo yes I could but then it turns into more washing up, added crap and added time, which was the point really

Also went to chippy on way home so took very little time

Mumcentreplus Tue 02-Aug-11 20:07:03

Oh yess chicle chill-flakes are the one!

YANBU, as long as there was also marmite on the toast and cheese on the beans.
