Tuesday's Tip...Children's Choice
Do you ever have a night where you just have no energy left to cook or you just can't think of another meal? I try to cook at home as often as possible, but sometimes my creativity or energy just gives out. Other times we just want to save money and eat in without cooking a big meal. In comes.... CHILDREN'S CHOICE!! This is one of their favorite nights! I allow them to make healthy choices of what each individual would like for dinner. If you choose ravioli, you must eat a fruit or veggie with it. On a recent night of Children's Choice, 2 ate macaroni and cheese, our son ate the rest of the refried beans in a bean and cheese tortilla, one ate yogurt and fruit, and one ate her favorite egg noodles cooked in chicken broth. The children helped clear the refrigerator AND ate much cheaper than a night at Chick Fil A! Try it... you'll love the feeling of knowing that $30 for eating a fast food meal for a party of 7 stayed in your pocket!
