Inspiration fail....

BoysBoysBoysAndMe Tue 02-Oct-12 13:30:19

Chicken-seasoned and fried with lid on,, new potatoes, peas, carrots, gravy.

Yorkshire puddings if I have any in freezer.

Custard and a digestive (or 2) for pud.

Have just started to buy beans and sausage in a tin and ds1+2 love them with a potato cake or toast.

heliotrope Tue 02-Oct-12 13:30:39

Macaroni 'peas' from Hugh FW 'VEg' book. I'm trying to cook less meat and DS is dairy allergic so no cheese for him. I'm going to do some small crispy bacon bits in it to up the flavour for him. I know that is meat too, but just a little...

BoysBoysBoysAndMe Tue 02-Oct-12 13:31:31

Ds2 hates eggs but ds1 used to love (and still does) scrambled egg and toast, with a little butter melted on top.

BettyandDon Tue 02-Oct-12 13:36:06

A bit of my carluccios chicken and spinach risotto ready meal. I have given up trying to cook specific toddler meals as she doesnt like them. The best chance I have is if I am eating the same...

What we are eating - mild chicken curry with rice and salad bits

JollyToddler Tue 02-Oct-12 13:39:59

Something with chicken. With either rice or pasta. He won't eat potatoes.

BoysBoysBoysAndMe Tue 02-Oct-12 13:44:20

How about a toasted sandwich with chopped cucumer/carrott on the side and rice pudding with a spoon of jam for pud?

beela Tue 02-Oct-12 13:45:08

leftover chicken & leek stroganoff from Jamie's minstry of food book. We had it last night, it was yummy.

oreocrumbs Tue 02-Oct-12 13:47:13

Either roast chicken or pork steaks whichever needs eating first. Not sure what to do with them though, probably new pots and veg.

NoKnownAllergies Tue 02-Oct-12 13:52:46

Fish goujons, new potatoes and salad.

lynniep Tue 02-Oct-12 14:07:36

will be pasta bolognese tonight as thats what I yanked out of the freezer this morning before work!

bbface Tue 02-Oct-12 14:11:30

3 Fish goujans (marks, not homemade) handful of sauteed potatoes, one large carrot cut into batons. Followed by fruit puree.

Whatiswitnit Tue 02-Oct-12 14:14:10

Same as the rest of us: gammon, pineapple, roast potatoes, broccoli and cauli with cheese sauce. Probably fromage frais for pudding tonight as I haven't made anything puddingy.

Whatiswitnit Tue 02-Oct-12 14:16:12

BoysBoysBoysandMe - scrambled eggs are always a winner in this house. Or dippy eggs and soldiers.

LaundryFairy Tue 02-Oct-12 14:16:48

Not a toddler, but still toddler-friendly: ham and cheese crepes.

detoxdiva Tue 02-Oct-12 14:17:23

Spaghetti mixed up with red pesto and a tin of tuna with some cheese stirred in. Sounds hmm but they love it!

Rubirosa Tue 02-Oct-12 14:17:50

I'm making a Tuscan bean soup. He probably won't eat it (might eat the beans) but then he rarely eats what we have for dinner.

Shakey1500 Tue 02-Oct-12 14:18:51

Chicken Chasseur, easy peasy. Chop chicken, throw in pyrex bowl, cover with homepride sauce, 20mins in oven. Probably with brocolli and cauliflower. Chocolate pud for pud grin

JollyToddler Tue 02-Oct-12 14:20:19

Okay - chicken whizzed up with apple, egg and breadcrumbs to make burgers. Served with rice cooked quite soft and mixed with raisins, peppers and onions.

I am having the same. Dh is working late tonight so it's just the two of us.

JollyToddler Tue 02-Oct-12 14:20:50

And yogurt afterwards probably.

TheArmadillo Tue 02-Oct-12 14:21:15

same as the rest of us
Allegra Mcready's lamb and aubergine kebabs in pitta with some salad and leftover romesco sauce.

matana Tue 02-Oct-12 14:21:28
