A special entree for the kids?!

Question: A special entree for the kids?
Most kids have their favorite food that they love from Mom. When they go off to college and on their own, they love to come home, knowing their mom will make this for them, if only at their request.
My daughter is almost 13, and does not have this. Would you PLEASE help, by giving me a recipe that you think would fit this? My husband makes spaghetti, but she eats just the noodles. So spaghetti isn't the answer. I'm open to everything else!


Have you asked her what her favorite home-cooked meal is? Mine was Mom's pot roast w/potatoes, carrots, celery and onions, with home-made rolls.

By, all means, make the meals she likes as often as is practical. If she likes turkey, your local store should have young turkeys, or whole turkey breasts in the meat case, so you don't have to cook a Thanksgiving size bird.

Some other mains that I liked as a kid:

Meat loaf
Home made baked mac and cheese (I make mine with ground beef and diced tomatoes)
Oven baked chicken
Waffles with sausage gravy
Cocktail franks wrapped in crescent rolls

Turkey Meatballs

1 pound fresh ground, lean turkey
1 egg
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon dried onions
1 tablespoon green peppers, chopped
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons catsup

Preheat oven to 400F. Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Use about 1 tablespoon of mixture each and form into meatballs. Arrange meatballs on a lightly greased 10 x 15 x 1 inch baking pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until meatballs are no longer pink in center. Serves 6.


How would we know what your daughter likes to eat? You need to ask her.

ETA: aparently she does not like your cooking and prefers the chicken from the local restraunt she asks to go to. It would be a safe guess that it is her favorite dish and not pot roast since she does not ask for pot roast and does not order it when out.

In the midwest whole turkey is a good dollar value but more than three times year it looses its glamor. It always needs the same vegetable counter part. Traditions come from usage.
