People ask me if my kids eat gourmet food on a regular basis.
I wish I could respond with a strong, “Yes! They have amazing and refined palates.”
The truth is, they love just a few things;
Kraft Mac and Cheese
That about sums up what they truly enjoy.
I know, I know, I have control over what they eat. They only love these things because I exposed them to it.
It is a beast I am trying to tame.
I am getting better about just putting food that I made in front
of them and saying, “Here is your dinner. Enjoy.”
This has resulted in some gagging. Also some tears. Maybe some throwing.
But we are working on it. We are always working on it.
If you can understand where I am coming from, you know that it
takes energy. Lots and lots of energy to break the bad habits.
Here is a recipe that is healthy, delicious and easy, so you can
save your energy for these battles.

2 cans coconut milk
3 Tbl Red Curry Paste
1 Tb Thai Fish Sauce
