Family Favorite Reipe

I don't like to cook anymore. Mainly because my family complains about what I've made and they think it is appropriate to tell me that things look/taste/smell disgusting.... They all need spankings. So, I asked my friends what they made for dinner and I got some really great ideas.

This week started some new rules.
1. You aren't allowed to say that looks, taste, smells disgusting.
2. You must eat what is on your plate. (not all of it but they have to try it.

Side note- When I was a kid we sat at the dinner table as a family and passed around serving dishes and would have never told my mom that dinner was disgusting. (My mom is a really good cook, I can't remember a bad meal.) (Except one- one time she made spaghetti and instead of picking basil from the garden she picked mint.... and we ate it like it was totally normal....)

back to the rules...
3. Don't be a jerk. (I didn't say that to them...) Since no one else is volunteering to make and clean up dinner then they have no say in anything....

I compiled a list of meal ideas from my friends and was reassured that all kids are jerks when it comes to meal time, and we don't have to put up with it.

Here's the first recipe I tried- FLAT BREAD PIZZA

  • 1 Flat Bread Pizza Crust
  • 3 c. Mozzarella Cheese, divided
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (1 oz) package Ranch Dip Mix- I didn't have this so I poured ranch salad dressing in with my cream cheese until I liked the taste.
  • 8 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 lb cooked and cubed chicken
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a small bowl cream together ranch mix and cream cheese. Spread over pizza crust
  3. Top cream cheese mixture with 2 c. mozzarella cheese. Top with chicken, bacon and the rest of your cheese.
  4. Back at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until pizza is golden brown.

My kids ate it. Lucy even said, "Mom, this looks real gross but taste so good!" She sure knows how to give the complements.

What do you guys feed your family?
