Brace yourselves.... the kids actually enjoyed dinner tonight!!!!

   Meals in this house are usually a huge disaster (unless I am serving chips, pasta or McDonalds)..... everybody complains, very rarely do we get through a meal without someone going on a timeout for making gagging noises, and there have been some dinners that even the dog turned her nose up at.
This afternoon the kids and I made spinach and rice balls from this recipe. I did make some changes though.... I used basmati rice instead of brown.... I used marble cheese instead of mozzarella and  I did NOT spray the tops with PAM.  They were super easy to make and so very delicious!

I prepared all the ingredients and let the kids make the "meatballs"

                       :: please take note of the PERMANENT maker all over Anthony's hands

While they were in the oven the kids played a little game of smothering each other with cushions... how adorable

Here they are right out of the oven and I think they look delish. They get nice and crispy on the outside and gooey and cheesy on the inside..perfect to dip in marinara sauce!

Happy faces and empty bowls at the end of dinner....what more could you ask for?  Well I guess someone to do the dishes!


  1. I'll make those tonight! Thanks Krista, I just love reading your blog! xo
