Kids rice soup with green peas

My kids are tired of eating salads 🙂 so I decided to prepare them soup – simple, only with a few ingredients as kids like this. Also I had some fresh peas in a fridge, and for more satiety I added small turkey meatballs, but they are really optional.

Picos keksiukai

Pizza muffins

When me and my hubby for dinner want only salads, I know that my kids won’t aprove it. So I bake for them these pizza muffins and we eat them with the salads 🙂 They are very easy and quick, I think even a kid can bake them. The only thing I can say – I don’t know how they taste when completely cooled down or on the next day – we eat them warm and all at once.

Chicken and rice salads with curry

I decided to prepare something new for our already boring quick menu. This dish is very quick, if you do like me – boil chicken a day before. My hubby commended. I asked him maybe the dish is so good because almost all the week we ate what we had on hand? But he assured that no and ate almost everything, leaving just a few bites for my next day lunch… You can enjoy these salads and cold, and warm.

Rice cakes with vegetables

Last weekend, while my children were sleeping in the afternoon, I wanted to bake something sweet. But I was angry at my self, because I didn’t know what can I bake. So I started to browse in my computer looking for something suitable. And I saw these cakes. I decided to make them. I know, that they’re not sweet, but I had everything they needed in my fridge. I just didn’t make baskets out of rice, just did two layer cakes. And they tasted very good. At first I was afraid that my hubby will miss meat in them, but I was wrong 🙂
