Who is Coming for Dinner?

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

I made this wonderfully fattening and delectable meal tonight-White Cheese Chicken Lasagna.  It was a very time-consuming meal to put together.  It didn’t help that my 23 month-old kept telling me that she needed to potty.  I would stop dinner and take her to the potty.  Then, she wouldn’t do anything.  By the third or fourth time of her telling me she needed to do number two, I just couldn’t stop anymore.  Of course, this time she actually did it.  In a pull-up, thank goodness.

Here were the responses at the dinner table:

  • Five year-old:  what is this green stuff?  Did you put broccoli in this?  I’ll eat all this and then you can throw all the green stuff away.  (I eventually had to feed him in order to get the meal over with; however, he did not complain one bit.  I guess he was just wanting some extra attention tonight.)
  • Almost two year-old:  made her take the first bite and then she ate two servings.
  • Daddy:  you can make this any time!
  • Me:  this is a make-for-company meal.  Almost hate that I went to so much trouble for such little appreciation!  Glad my man enjoyed it, though.  Then I thought, “holy moly, this is so rich and cheesy.  I can just feel my hips expanding with every bite.  It sure is yummy!”

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

This recipe came from www.allrecipes.com.  This meal was delicious!  The combinations of spices was wonderful.  Created a heavenly aroma in the house that made we want to scarf it down!  I made a side of guacamole to go with this using the salsa that I made earlier this week.  My kiddos ate their tacos on flour tortillas.  My sweetie and I used corn.  We are about to make some major lifestyle changes in our diet around here.  One of those changes being a limited amount of bleached, white, enriched flour.  This means no more flour tortillas in our home unless we buy the whole grain kind.  Anyway, back to the review.  This meal was yummy! 

Since we are trying to make some changes, I decided to assemble the children’s tacos for them without consulting them.  I spread guacamole on their tortillas, added the chicken, tomatoes and shredded cheddar.  Then I rolled them up and put it in front of them to eat.  Both children complained-at first!  We made them both take bites and eat.  The little one did not spit it out when she figured out that we were not going to back down.  She ate about half of hers and then had yogurt for dessert.  The little dude decided that those little red things, aka tomatoes, are not so bad and neither was the green “stuff”, aka guacamole.  He ate 3/4 of his taco and then wasted the yogurt that he asked for simply because the darling daughter was eating one.  The End.

Oh, yeah.  Just so you know, we will make this one again.  Click on one of the pictures and it will take you to the recipe.

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
