If you feel 喜欢 晚餐time turns you into a short order cook for your family, you are not alone.

One kid is a vegetarian, another hates spicy foods, someone else is just plain picky. Sometimes we feel 喜欢 we have to make multiple 晚餐s to keep the whole crowd happy (or reluctantly reach for the box of mac 和 cheese).

烦人吧?

解决方案:查找“Fork in the Road” 碟es that let you cook one meal, but adapt it in different ways to suit multiple palates.

What is a fork-in-the-road 碟?

我想到了“fork in the road” meals when my kids were young, 和 I was looking to prepare meals that we could all eat together. I didn’t want to be a short order cook, making different things for different people. And even beyond the time factor, I 喜欢d the idea that we would all be eating basically the same thing.

However, not everyone was in the same place in terms of love of spice, vegetables, spiciness, 和 so on. I realized that with a few tweaks during the cooking process we could get to a harmonious family 晚餐 (well, as harmonious as it gets when you’re eating with children!).

这些餐点背后的想法是,您可以像往常一样准备餐点,直到您’d start adding extra flavorings. At this point, scoop out a portion 和 set it aside for people with simpler palates. Then continue on cooking the main 碟, gussying it up for grownups 和 adventurous eaters with herbs, seasonings, 和 so forth.

For instance, maybe you’re making a pasta sauce, but your kids really 喜欢 their tomato sauce on the plainer side. Make a straightforward tomato sauce, 和 then separate some out into a bowl or another pot. Then you can add capers, chopped olives, anchovies, herbs to the remaining sauce—whatever you 和 the other more intrepid eaters 喜欢.

灵活的一餐使每个人都开心!

The result is that you essentially are making one 碟 for the entire family, with some tweaks that allow everyone to be happy—including you, 通过 the way.

这并不是为房子里的“选择性较高”的食客们愚弄食物。这种方法解决了这样一个现实:如果您将某名儿童的鲑鱼淋上酱汁,那是不可以的,他们可能不会吃鲑鱼。在这里,您最好只配上一点酱汁就可以品尝鲑鱼,并让他们按照自己的节奏进行研究。但是,请随意下自己的三文鱼!

一些“FORK IN THE ROAD” IDEAS TO TRY!

准备好将这个想法付诸实践了吗?看看下面的一些想法,看看什么可能对您的家庭有用!

土耳其汉堡配迷迭香和百里香

香草土耳其汉堡

汉堡

Start with your burger 肉, whether it’s beef or pork or turkey or lamb, 和 give it a nice seasoning of salt 和 pepper. You can then pull out enough for one or two (or however many) plain patties, 和 then continue adding other seasonings for those who want more interest in their burgers.

Keep in mind, however, that you’ll want to reduce the amount of seasonings called for in the recipe if you are separating a significant amount of 肉 out for plain burgers. You can eyeball this, though, because seasonings are subjective anyway.

绿鸡蛋火腿三明治

烤奶酪三明治

纯烤奶酪绝对是没有错的,纯奶酪是地球上最完美的食物之一。但是,加入各种附加功能也很有趣。

通过添加不同类型的奶酪来改变事物;确保您至少有一种融化性非常好的奶酪,例如哈瓦蒂(harvarti)或高达(gouda)或方蒂纳(fontina),这样当您将其切成小块或咬成一团时,便会得到具有粘性的三明治,并带有良好的拉力。

You can also add extras 喜欢 leftover deli 肉 or roasted vegetables from another meal.

烤奶酪三明治很容易制成叉车风格:只需将每个单独组装即可。

黑眼豆豌豆莎莎配芝士炸玉米饼

克萨迪亚斯

与烤干酪相似,墨西哥玉米饼很容易定做。您可以根据个人喜好更改奶酪,馅料和浇头。

A fun family 晚餐 or gathering might entail you putting out a spread of grated cheeses 和 potential fillings such as sliced roasted peppers, shredded chicken, chopped sautéed vegetables 和 so forth.

提供一些不同的辣味酱可帮助每个人定制香料水平。然后,您只需让每个人都自己组装!

这也是让孩子尝试新事物的好方法-叉车式旅行并不意味着让事情简单明了或笨拙,它还意味着为他们提供机会以有趣的方式扩展味蕾。

西兰花切达汤

西兰花切达汤

汤类

汤中添加了太多东西,我总是发现这是一种有趣的方法,可以用来处理厨房和冰箱中的一些调味品。分离出一些使其保持朴素,然后使用各种调味料,添加物和浇头进行调味-只要记住汤的基本风味即可。

对于成年人还是喜欢冒险的人?考虑从harissa酱到大蒜黑豆再到最后切碎的洋蓟心再撒上一粒葵花籽的任何事物。所有这些物品都可以增加汤的趣味性。

简易虾Scampi食谱

虾Scampi配豌豆和虾

意大利面条

如上所述,调味料可以简单而简单(西红柿调味料,奶油调味料),也可以用新鲜的药草,香料,cho鱼酱等进行点缀。

You can also add more things to the pastas themselves, such as diced roasted vegetables or leftover shredded roast 肉. Or finish the pasta with a sprinkle of breadcrumbs for a nice textural surprise. Just remember to pull out some of the sauce or pasta before you take it past the desired level of the whole gang.

炸玉米饼填充鸡辣椒瓦罐

慢锅丝鸡辣椒

辣椒

有了辣椒,叉车通常会带有所需的热量。当辣椒适度辣时,将其分离出来,然后通过红辣椒片,辣酱,新鲜或干燥的辣椒或阿斗波中的小辣椒增加热量,这是确保每个人都保持健康的好方法快乐。

还有’s easy to make a vegetarian chili 和 divide it in two, then add 肉 to one of the pots. I make this kind of two-way chili all the time; it’s an easy way to entertain a crowd.

鱼炸玉米饼

玉米饼

炸玉米饼是终极的道岔。只需将馅料分开并调节热量即可。或者,制作墨西哥玉米卷调味料混合物,然后在一个锅中加入一些火鸡炒牛肉,在另一锅中加入一些牛肉碎,进行两种选择。

玉米饼最吸引人,最自然的分叉方式之一是浇头形式。倒入莎莎酱,酸奶油,磨碎的奶酪,切碎的西红柿,鳄梨或鳄梨调味酱和切成薄片的葱。然后让每个人都梦想成真。

  1. 我也做“fork in the road”烧烤奶酪,我只是没有’t know that’s what it was called. I add a fried egg 和 a slice of ham (or what ever lunch 肉 I have). I put Sundried Tomato pesto on the inside of the bread. YUM!!

    I 喜欢 your ideas…..但我面临的挑战是我全家人一半都吃纯素饮食。这比您的建议要复杂。有什么想法吗?

    取悦所有人的好主意。谢谢谢谢。我只喜欢您的博客,喜欢每一封电子邮件。继续做自己的事。它激发并帮助年轻人和老年人

  4. 马琳娜

    好主意。我的家人过敏很多,所以我会做一些每个人都可以吃的东西,然后有很多适合他们过敏的食物和调味品。一段时间后,它变得非常容易–与您的想法相同,但有所不同。

  5. 热重

    在我的家人中“eat what you want” 晚餐 is either 沙拉 or grain bowls. Both involve me chopping up a ton of veggies, laying them out in a line, 和 going down the line with each child adding the items they want. Both kids 喜欢 cucumbers 和 tomatoes, but one of them 喜欢s baby kale 和 the other 喜欢s bell peppers. Sometimes one or the other will want broccoli or beans. One will not touch most 肉s, 和 the other loves 肉. However it goes, both kids love being able to choose their foods, even if I do insist on a certain number of veggies. :)
