RECIPE: My child refuses to eat red meat
I am cooking for a standard family of four: Mom and Dad, two teen girls, ages 16 and 17. The younger girl recently told me she no longer wants to eat red meat. I have high blood pressure and kidney trouble and doctors have told me to cut down on salt and protein. My husband is a big meat-and-potatoes guy. Everyone likes Italian food. But I don't feel like cooking two main entrees for dinner evety night. Any suggestions, other than to cook a variety of vegetable/starch side dishes along with one meat dish and let each serve themself? Any recommended cookbooks or websites for "blended" families? I am making hamburgers tonight. The little one has told me she will not eat them. Tomorrow I am making cili with beans, no meat, served with rice and various topping-cheese,sour cream, guacamole.
