Imagine, I have just started doing extra in the kitchen with my children, and Social Moms and Uncle Ben's team up to bring a post about making healthy meals for your children. Now I just have to tell you, that we add rice to alot of our meals! My husband could have rice with butter as a side dish every night of the week!
Just yesterday we created a really great meal using rice! We started out by marinating chicken breast chunks in a Teriyaki Sauce and some of it in a Buffalo Sauce. I personally don't like spicy, but the Buffalo Sauce won hands down with the rest of my family. The girls all helped prepare the meal. Anyway, after marinading the chicken for several hours, we placed the chicken in baking dishes and placing them in the oven. We started rice next. While waiting for the water to boil, we pulled out the wok and started stir fry veggies. Yum! The veggies included broccoli, mushrooms, snap peas, red pepper, carrots, water chestnuts, and those little corn things! With eight of us and one guest we had to do two pans of veggies. Unfortunately we underestimated on the chicken. Everyone wanted more! So, today we purchased more chicken and other ingredients and are making it again tomorrow!

How do my neighbors encourage their children to cook and eat healthy? Do you have a special recipe to share? I know a few people posted a bread recipe last week, and we are looking forward to trying them!
