Kitchen Help

I was forever screwing up meals for my kids but they were always gracious when I did. I thought Id post a couple ideas from some of my dad friends:
Chili too hot for the kids? Add a spoonful of peanut butter to calm the heat. If your chili or spaghetti sauce is too acidic, add a sliced carrot to neutralize the acid. Boring lunches? Use large cookie cutters to turn sandwiches into fun shapes. Your kids might like it too.
~Cam (Florida) I keep a list of favorite foods, snacks, sweets for each of my kids. Then I surprise them by buying or cooking for them. Sometimes I tuck their favorite candy into their lunch bag. While I'm at it, I include a little note to encourage them.                                                                                               ~Ke (Singapore)
