Re: Simple Meal Ideas for VERY Picky DH!

I buy the pre-done cheese tortellini, boil it, add pesto and olive oil (you could do butter and parmesan, or some salt and pepper, whatever seasonings he DOES like), and sliced gourmet sausages (from trader joes, but sam's has some yummy ones!)

Will he do pastas? You could add shredded chicken, olives, scallions, and feta to rainbow rotini. Baked chicken with a boxed couscous mix is yummy, fast, and easy, too!

White chicken chili is another thought.

Bisquick cheeseburger pie (google it, it's by betty crocker I think)

Stir-fry meat, veggies, and add store bought or homemade teryaki sauce over rice

Chicken with cheesy rice

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes

(I'm trying to think of things MY mom, the box queen, cooked! We grew up buying whole foods from the coop and when I hit my teens, out came the boxes and cans...)


B... newly type II diabetic, wife to B 9/16/05, mama to B 1/23/07 H 9/27/08 (after three years of GI issues FINALLY getting a celiac diagnosis!) and our miracle baby C who joined us 9/6/2011, and is forever greatful to his "milk mamas" who pump for us! We do lots of crunchy things and some soggy things, too.

Great idea with the hidden veggies, nikkicaligirl! I am always trying to do that to get him to eat more veggies since he doesn't like the texture of most.

Sadly, he doesn't like pasta, although I have turned him onto eating whole wheat rotini with broccoli -- as long as it is covered in cheddar cheese sauce!

Thanks for more ideas! My maternity leave ends Monday, so I am going to be cooking some meals this weekend!
Baby #3 due September 2015!
