Supper Tonight - My Kids' Choice. Scary!

OK, so tonight I didn't have time to plan anything ahead, I hadn't shopped for produce, and I was insanely wiped out from two hours overtime...

So - I went WAY crazy and told my Sprouts they could choose anything in the house - all their favorites, Kids Choice night.
I know they love to cook, (even if it's frozen pizza), but usually I add SOME direction or limits. Not tonight - they could make anything they wanted - to celebrate... um... Mom not having to cook... or... everyone coming home from Ecuador... or something...
Well, they had fun. But I just HAD to post a picture of their supper choices - just to dispel some misconceptions: It's true - I really don't whip up colorful, healthy, wonderful homemade meals every night, and my kids don't always make wonderfully healthy, nutritionally complete three-course dinners, when left to their own choices... (I wish we did, but that's not the way life works and sadly, I am just not SuperMom).

At any rate, it could have been worse, I guess... Here we have: Amy's Soy Cheese Pizza, homemade seasoned potato wedgies (yes, they made those themselves!), onion rings and corn (they included a vegetable). Even so, I'm still scared.


And to close, another picture of our little doggie... still got some health issues, but enjoying life, and happy as ever.

YUm! Kid's Choice dinner is great! Lol! I'd love to eat like that all the time! Lol! :P I love how they threw in the veggie too!

I think if dinner was Britty's kid's choice, she'd pick mashed potatoes with gravy... and more mashed potatoes with gravy!

That pupy pic is adorable! How cute they look together. I hope your puppy's health issues are not too serious!

Actually, your kids' choices are pretty well rounded.

Love your little Boston--cutie pie! My Omniman grew up with a Boston and we just melt every time we see them.

I think that dinner looks pretty yummy! I'm sure it could have been a whole lot worse!

Your kid's choice dinner looks a lot like our grown-up's choice dinner! lol! I still think you qualify for "Super-Mom" title.

Glad Chelsie is doing well! I'm not what you would call young any more, but I could sure go for that kid's choice dinner! =)

Oh goodness I've missed a lot of posts! Well the kids meal is exactly what I would expect! All your food below looks awesome. My favorite is the kitty in the bowl!

Funny. It's probably ok to eat like that a few times, but they didn't choose anything green! My little niece refuses to eat anything green, so it could be a kid thing.
