Looking for a fun way to add some Christmas cheer to your kids’ favorite meal? Turn quesadillas into festive Christmas trees in a fun and easy twist on a classic!
Try as we may, the truth of the matter is that Christmas is a season of treats. Sugar and junk food are everywhere, from eggnog to candy canes to cookies for Santa. While I love being able to indulge occasionally, I try not to let my boys become overcome by the sugary lure.
In our house (and I’m would bet yours as well!) sugary treats can be a black hole – I offer Ryan one Hershey’s kiss as an after dinner treat and the next thing I know, it’s Friday and he’s throwing a tantrum because I won’t let him take a chocolate bath Augustus Gloop style instead of eating dinner.
Okay, that might be a bit extreme, but when it comes to the good stuff in our house it really does look like a, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie situation. It quickly escalates into mealtime meltdowns and tantrums galore.
With that in mind, I try pretty hard to find easy ways to add some fun to the boys’ without relying on the sweet stuff. Take my famous chicken boo-dle soup – my way to solve the issue of wanting kids to go out and get candy, but obviously, they need dinner first.
Making festive treats for holidays doesn’t have to be difficult – these east turkey donuts are the perfect thanksgiving treat without the time and headache!
If you couldn’t tell by now, I really dig playing with my – okay, my kids – food. I think it goes back to my dad, who would tell us extremely intricate stories about our dinners. The mashed potatoes were mountains, gravy made rivers, and broccoli provided shade for all of the villagers.
