A kid favorite!
I was recently asked how the boys were liking all these fun and different meals! They do a good job I’d say! My little guy will eat just about anything. Although you wouldn’t know it because he’s a skinny little guy (inherited his daddy’s metabolism!). My big guy is a little more finicky, but he’ll try most things. So I thought I’d go back to one of their favorites tonight since we haven’t had it in a while! I needed a simple meal because tonight we’re off to see the holiday lights just after dinner…and (maybe) sit on Santa’s lap!?!
