I have a picky eater!

SO my neighbor inspired me to share some of Kehnley's fav. recipes. She's a SUPER picky eater, hates veggies, LOVES hot dog wieners and mac and cheese...lets just say she only gets those things on a regular basis from the grandparents houses. SO, my mission... to make food she will eat that's actually good for her, something BRY will eat...AND something easy enough I can make in a day. Oh yeah!!! AND it would be nice if it was on a budget too!

PS. This is also a new feature for my friends that live far away asking me for recipes and Nate in particular following his dreams in Nashville, maybe this can give you some mealtime ideas :) AND you wont have to scribble ingredients down over the phone!

Two nights ago I made Turkey White Bean Chili and THESE "Muffins" as she favorably calls them.

Thank Kristen Webster for this one!!

Broccoli Cheddar Muffins

1/2 c. melted butter
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 10oz frozen bag of chopped broccoli cooked and drained
1/2 c. green onion chopped (*optional)
8 oz. Jiffy corn muffin mix (blue box)
Beat the eggs in mixer until light in color. Add Butter & cheese & mix on low. Add muffin mix, broc. & *onion- mix on low speed another minute. Pour into greased muffin pan.
Cook 375 for15-20 minutes And watch as your child eats broccoli with a smile! :)
This one is for all my Tech-ies who KNOW what a huge pot this makes! Wouldn't have been a great Lubbock winter night without it! Thanks Gabby :)
