Thanks for the food ideas, blog friends. I will check out those organic nuggets. I've found some at Costco that have all kinds of omega 3 and no preservatives which has replaced Tyson. Sorry Tyson.
Mostly I just feel guilty when I'm cramming food (or so-called food) down their throats so we can run off to gymnastics or soccer. Tonight we actually had a real meal and it was decently healthy...and they ate it! They really ate it.
Here's the recipe in case you want to try it. It's a favorite (of the non kid meals) around here.
Rice Krispie Ranch Chicken
Dip chicken breasts into egg yolk (or just the whites).
Then in a separate bowl, dip the chicken into a mixture of:
rice krispie cereal
1 packet of ranch dressing (the dry kind)
(I usually pour the mixture remnants into the baking dish too...)
Place in baking pan at 375 degress for 30-45 minutes.
I usually go in and cut the chicken breasts in half after about 30 minutes to check how they are cooking.
We had green beans and bread.
Anyway, I redeemed myself for one day this week. I still need to cook some extra pancakes to freeze for emergency situations. The problem is that my kids will eat EVERY pancake I make so there are none left to freeze..and if anything IS left over, hubby jumps in and consumes. These people can't resist a fresh pancake.
