I’m not gonna lie, sometimes feeding my daughter is tough. She is the sweetest, funniest little girl in the world but at 18 months old, she’s also a tiny tyrant when it comes to food. If it isn’t a fruit, yogurt, bread, or cheese, she isn’t having any of it. I’m fairly certain that if it weren’t for those handy pouches with veggies mixed in, she wouldn’t get within 10 feet of a vegetable. It breaks my food blogger/veggie loving heart just a little. So, in an attempt to get my daughter to eat something other than cheese, I recently came up with these delicious little Veggie Quinoa Cakes. They’re easy to make (and freezable!) and packed with protein and veggies, making them a great option for the entire family!
So, I’ve been told that I can’t eat Edible Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough every day.
I know, right? Who are these haters? Now although I’m still not sure that is completely true, I will admit that sometimes a really good hearty dinner sounds good too (maybe followed by cookie dough?). And I guess if I’m going to be binging on cookie dough (and I am) then I better try to balance things with some vegetables. Enter Slow Cooker Beef and Vegetable Ragu. (And if you don’t have a slow cooker, don’t worry, I’ve got that covered too!)
As meals go, this one checks all of the boxes. Easy to make. Kid friendly. Hearty. Adaptable. And as the days and evenings get busier (anyone else feel like they are on a constant Merry-Go-Round?) this Slow Cooker Beef and Vegetable Ragu is a good one to come home to.
