Kid-Friendly Dinners

Kid-Friendly Dinners

I’ve been told I have the tastes of an eight-year-old. Normally I respond to such accusations with an assertion that I merely have a discerning palate, thank you very much. But sometimes, even I have to admit that it is true. Sometimes I just want creamy, easy mac and cheese for dinner, no frills or additives or fancy sauce flavors. Sometimes I just want little English muffin pizza bites that I can eat while I watch cartoons, trying not to get sauce on the blanket in which I’ve wrapped myself. Sometimes I can’t even be bothered with real dinner, and I want breakfast for dinner, quick and easy to whip up and oh-so-satisfying.
But who doesn’t want a lovely, comforting, easy dinner that appeals to the kid in us now and again? Some nights we all have the tastes of an eight-year-old. And heck, some of us even have eight-year-olds, and toddlers, and teens, and it can pay dividends to make a dinner light on broccoli and high in sweet, salty, cheesy satisfaction. An evening of pancakes might be just the thing to turn a dreary day around. And maybe this week we could all, children and grown-ups alike, use juvenile palate pleasers every night of the week.

        Even if you make a simple roasted veggie casserole because you need to have veggies at some point this week, serve it up with something fun and lovely like this gooey Skillet Cheesy Monkey Bread.
