Made some couscous last weekend with chicken and wok vegetables. Must say the kids loved it.


I'm sure, I like it too. I have had it in many ways but it's a good standby when your feeding the kids. (well that was 45 years ago now) :) I had a lot of fun with a wok and made a lot in the back yard because it was a flame thrower. LOL


Mac and Cheese or chili Mac were both a big hit with my kids. I myself still like it.



I must say my kids like a lot of stuff, especially my youngest. They don't like spicy and Mexican food though.

My Mother said eat a bit at a time and to blow on the amount one has on their fork or spoon to cool off the food, it works. There is nothing wrong with Mexican food, I could think of food that they'd never eat, like a "bug"...


Mexican food I love big time, that is my number one choice of any foods. Hot or not I'll eat it.


Me too. There's a great Mexican place in Brussels. I once went there with some colleagues of mine. Can't cook it at home though due to the children:(

What made the children dislike it? Any idea? As their missing out on some good food...
As not all Mexican type food is spicy or flaming hot...

I know. Tried to let them eat some 'mild' Mexican food several times but they just don't like it, both of them and as I recall, Oonah didn't like it either.

How about Rime rib steak in Tracey Uli ? H-580 and I-5 ? Don't bring your scales and I'll buy and I'll even throw a few beers of your choice. :) As soon as they let me drive again. I'm locked up for now!! I think they killing me slowly but I'm a tough old bird. I have too much I want to do yet.

Well it was garlic salt or garlic butter, one or the other was in powdery form and a yellow color, made the normal tart tasting sprouts quite tasty, I really don't know which it was n the garlic as My Brother last cooked the brussels sprouts that way in late 2003, do its been about 9 years...

Most of the time I use butter and salt but garlic sounds like a nice twist, I never done that. I just got some yesterday I'll give it a try. Since I live alone I'm the only taste tester in the house.

I also cook totally different food sometimes than my mother used to cook. For example, she never made brocolli and I make it all the time.

I never had Boccoli until I got to the States. Some foods were just not available at the time.
Like peanut butter. I had to send my Mom some, plus Taco fixings, which she discovered on her first visit here.

I never had Pizza until about 1971 on a trip north, going up the peninsula, past Grants Pass Ore(Beefalo Burgers near Mt Mazama), made it all the way to Portland Ore and into Washington state before heading home... Dad mentioned that I should have an open mind and not reject something I've never had before, this was in context with food, I've kept that ever since... I've even tried Chinese food, Southern Fried Chicken, Mexican, heck I've even grown some of My own food in the past, from seed no less...
