Anyway, the boys ate their ziti and meatballs with incredible gusto, so Mr. Gateau and I were trying to think of some similarly simple dinners that are quick to prepare and the kids will enjoy, but aren't too kid-like (for our benefit) and/or made of junk. Some ideas:
--chicken quesadillas with whole wheat tortillas, guacamole, salsa
--tacos or nachos made with the fancy organic taco shells or chips, turkey or buffalo meat, and decent quality fixings
--rotisserie chicken or any grilled/roasted meat with Near East rice pilaf and a vegetable
--chicken noodle soup
--chicken sausage and potatoes baked in one dish and served with grainy mustard
--beef stew or other crock-pot stew
Others? Anyone? Bueller?
