Happy Meal

You know those nights when the kids are complaining because we are having salad AGAIN.  Then they don't eat the salad and you sit through the whole mean listening to whining?  It's exhausting and I can't say I like it one little bit.  So last Sunday night after a long weekend all I wanted was BBQ meat and a salad, but do I want it bad enough to sit through the boys complaining?  So I tried version of a 'Happy Meal'.....Monster Salads

Guess what?  There was no complaining, just silence and their plates were empty in minutes.  It was brilliant!!  So this Sunday after another full weekend we tried again.  I honestly didn't think it would work again, that perhaps last Sunday was one of those one hit wonders.  So I thought I had better step things up and make a bigger, better monster salad.  Throw in some home made ice tea, eat outside on the deck and happy, happy days!

So now the only time I have little monsters at the table is the other 6 nights a week!  I have to admit, they are cute monsters though.
