My Dinner Compromise

Me: "What do you guys want for dinner?"

A: "Kraft Dinner!!!"

(should I have even typed that? revealing the fact that my kids even know what Kraft Dinner is?)

sigh.

Here's what we did, which I could live with (kinda ;)

I took one pouch of Easy Mac (ooh!!! revealed that we have THAT in our house... gonna have to stop blogging soon) and divided it into 3 portions (one for me - 80 cals each, btw). For those of you who have ever made a pouch of Easy Mac, you know that they're not very flippin' big eaten alone, never mind divided by three.

Anyway.

I used their "compartment" plates (love love LOVE those things) and put the (cough cough) Easy Mac in one spot, cut up raw carrot in another, yogurt & blueberries in another, and included a Cheese String on the side.

Presto - compromise, and they're eating it.

I am trying to eat healthy, and cut down on processed foods and all that jazz. But some days just call for Easy Mac, and that's all there is to it! :-)
