Last year, I put together a round up of 15 Frugal Meals for a Small Budget. It has been such a hit, that I decided it was time to do it again…KID STYLE! If you have kids, you know how frustrating dinner time can be. It seems like the meals I spend lots of money and time on, my kids push away in disgust followed by,
“I don’t like this!”
To which I reply, “You haven’t even tried it yet!”
followed by, “It looks gross!”
and ended with, “Too bad. Eat it or go hungry!”
As much as I love having these “conversations” with my precious minions, and as much as I love finding hidden snacks and wrappers behind couches and beds from the little rebels who I “thought” were learning their lesson by going without dinner, sometimes a compromise is in order. Why not save yourself some money (and time!) and make something easy AND kid friendly! I’m all for putting away the Martha Stewart apron and just keeping it simple! Ready or not, here they come! 15 Frugal meals for kids!
