Kid Pleasing Dinner. What a wonderful phrase. AND this is one meal the grown-ups will love too!

It has a mild flavor. In other words, this is comfort food. There’s nothing in it that will shock the taste buds or bite you in the butt. Who doesn’t love a nice plate of low key deliciousness? Even fussy eaters will enjoy this (No guarantees though!)
