I think we would try different recipes and make foods that we liked even foods that kids would never eat. I realize that I need a "cooking for two" cookbook because even though it will end up being just for me - then I'll have lunch the next day. When I try to scale down those yummy (but not for kids) recipes I know I still end up throwing away half the food after I eat my portion and then eat another for lunch the next day. Not sure how my Mom does it - I think I need to get her to write a cook book!
Last night I roasted baby carrots until they were soft and a bit burned, i.e. caramelized - they taste great this way. Noah says it's the only way he even likes to eat carrots. I also make these potatoes - which are pretty much truffle fries.
I slice up a potato into thin pieces and roast them until they are at least a little crispy and then I put truffle salt on them. Everyone loves these.
This is my tofu dish which is kind of like a quick and simple sukiyaki. I like to add shiritaki noodles when I think of it but last night I learned that if you accidentally freeze the tofu shiritaki noodles they just become trash.
This whole meal was just a lot of vegetables and my kids happily ate it. Now to figure out how to get them to eat green ones.
