I actually liked this and the kids ate most of it without too much fuss.
I love it when Julie has her salads for sale. This time I also got one for the kids (since they liked the salad I fixed last week), but they didn't like this "fancy" lettuce.
This was on last week's plan, but we ended up going to the in-laws for dinner one night so I bumped it to this week. The recipe called for using a pre-made bag of slaw mix. I had a half head of cabbage from another meal so Paul chopped it up for me. It also called for a store-bought rotisserie chicken but I just baked up some boneless, skinless chicken breasts and chopped them up. I was able to have most of the prep done for this Sunday night which was great since Monday was the first "real" day back to work.
I really didn't think this would go over with the kids, but I wasn't too worried. Paul had to work and so the kids and I ate before he got home. When this happens they end up eating again when he comes in. So I figured if they didn't like the salad that was fine they could eat chili leftovers later with Daddy. Logan ate 3 servings and Sophie had two (although she didn't eat the cabbage just the chicken and noodles). I had also given them cottage cheese and applesauce.) Sophie loves cottage cheese, but I don't like to give it in her school lunch because she's so messy. Tonight, I mixed a little applesauce into the cottage cheese for Logan hoping maybe he'd eat some. He actually liked it that way and finished a whole serving.
