{Meal Planning} My favourite recipes from 2010

    I dont have a blog, however this is this weeks meal plan starting tonight:

    This household also LOVES Donna Hay. Her recipes are simple, tasty and I never have any fuss out of miss 3 eating any of her meals. They are great for families on the go but also have the more intense cooking experience for when you have the time.

    I made the Donna Hay spin on spaghetti bolognese from her 10th Anniversary mag the other night and it was AMAZING and definitely gave food for thought on spag bol night!ReplyCancel

    I have an autistic child who hates veges (apparently) and smuggling ANY green vegetable into his food is always a challenge, I’m sure the vege smugglers new book would help us out! If I could just hide broccoli, I would be happy!ReplyCancel

  • Stacey-Lee

    I have mild success with smuggling vegies in dishes, I know u can hide pumpkin but I am not sure how or what in – I’m sure this book could help immensely and expand my very short list of meals I can get my littler ones to eatReplyCancel

  • Anonymous

    Most green vegetables are near on impossible for me to hide in the kids food.
    Number one they have an aversion to anything green and number 2 it’s not an altogether subtle colour.
    Any hints/ideas I could get from veggie smugglers 2 in getting green veggies into them without a battle would be much appreciated!ReplyCancel

  • I have a tupperware turbo chop (like a slap chop) and it finely chops all vegies into the finest pieces, I use it in risotto, spaghetti, pasta and many other dishes. I used to be one of those picky people and I still disguise it from myself :P ReplyCancel

    I have a 7 month old who loves veggies so because of this my 2 year old thinks its “baby” food and downright refuses to eat ANY vegies her brother eats.this book will give me ideas on how to smuggle healthy veggies to my daughter…ohhhh and my hubby!! HeheReplyCancel

  • I steam all sorts of vegies, whatever is on special, then purée them together with a little passata (tomato purée). I then freeze them in muffin tins. I add 2 veggie cubes to every bolognaise or lasagna I make and the kids have no idea! ReplyCancel

    Any green vegie, they can spot them a mile away! We used to call my eldest son the Vegie smuggler, he used to hide vegies in his undies then flush them down the loo! He was caught out after trying to flush some stirfry as it left an oily clue!ReplyCancel

    I find it hard to smuggle capsicum into meals for the kids. They will eat them on pizza if we buy it but not if we make it that way.
    I need ideas to get more vegetables into my childrens diets without them realising, not to mention getting vegetables into my meat and potatoes husband.ReplyCancel

    my 2 year old won’t eat any vegies other than potato, so any ideas to help curb this would be awesome. ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous

    I smuggled in some eggplant onto our pizza last night – which was awesome! But if we have meat and veg or just a salad, all I can get my 20 month old to eat is potato, maybe carrot and maybe cucumber. Nothing green…even if I try and make it ‘tastier’ with herbs or garlic! He snuffs it out…ReplyCancel

  • Natalie

    The hardest vege to hide is beans they dont break down all that well and my kids really dont want to eat them, this book would help me hide them and other healthy vege’s in thier everyday meals.ReplyCancel

  • Those cheespuffs look awesome! I would love to make them for my son!ReplyCancel

  • If it’s not baked beans or fried rice, my little monster won’t eat it! Looking for some inspriation to get some different foods into him! :) ReplyCancel

  • Anything green would be the hardest to disguise, and this book looks like it would be brilliant for my 19 month old! Help please!ReplyCancel

    Ds3 is great with every veggie known to man but ds1 is terrible! It all started off well but now I am lucky if he eats peas and corn. I can hide carrot and zuchini but need more ideas for everything else! At least it will get him going on the veg an slowly I can stop te smuggling part.ReplyCancel

    As a mum of 2 small kids (3 and 4 yrs) we grow veges in the back yard and while the kids love watching them grow and picking them, eating them is a different story- I would love this book as it would give me some great ideas for getting these veges from garden to belly!ReplyCancel

    I have the issue of a 3 year old who will eat his veges, but really is a mainly a meat and veges bloke – anything vaguely more gourmet and he won’t touch it – I love trying new recipes with him (particularly if he helps me cook them) in the hope that we will hit on a new favourite, rather than meat and 5 veg or spag bol!!
