    Kids and Leftovers

    Thu May 26, 2005 10:11 pm Groupie
    Does anyone else do "Leftover night"? I find that my kids really enjoy it because it is one of the few nights where I don't determine what they eat! I put everything out smorgasbord style and let them choose. Now, I do guide their choices.

    Tonight's menu consisted of dribs & drabs of the following:

    Sweet Tater Chicken
    All White Bean Salad
    Canned black beans mixed with onion and cooked brown rice
    Cooked Salmon
    Cooked veggie medley (broc., carrots, cauliflower)

    Plus I put applesauce, Cucumbers in apple cider vinegar, salsa, and peach salsa on the table.

    The kids ate well. My son (who is pickier) really liked the sweet tater chicken, the black beans (though he picked out the onion), and the veggies. My daughter, oddly enough, sought out the cucumbers in vinegar. They both love applesauce too.

    Curious to know how others do it. Do you remember what was served at your last leftover night? What did the kids eat?

    Hey that's a great idea! Usually I'll freeze some leftovers like spaghetti, etc...or my twins and I will eat a leftover for lunch the next day while my older 2 are in school, but I like the idea of "potluck" night and letting them chose. Although I'd have to do that on a night dh won't be home, he hates leftovers and is pickier than the kids,lol. Y'all need a seperate forum for picky dh's icon_rolleyes.gif icon_eek.gif

    We usually do that on Saturday for lunch. It's "clean out the fridge day!" Whatever we have leftover from that week gets warmed up and put on the table. Then everybody fights over the best stuff icon_rolleyes.gif hehe
