Please don’t tell me that I am the only one who gets this reaction when calling Mr. -Soon -To -Be -4 years old to the dinner table.
We actually had a success tonight – Dinner on a Stick! I marinated some cubes of beef and skewered them. I took vegetables of every color and put them on sticks also. everything went on the grill and low and behold Brandon actually tried a bite or more of EVERYTHING! He tried meat, tomato, onion, red pepper, purple potatoes, mushroom, carrot – shoot, I had meant to stick on some artichoke hearts also. The verdict? His favorite was EVERYTHING!
We followed that with fruit (not grilled) on a stick. He ate peaches, plums, mango and kiwi and reached for a second stick. As a treat for such a calm, no fuss dinner they got to roast marshmallows – you guessed it – on a stick!
