Discussing Questions And Answers About Dog Food Tomato Sauce

Chris asks…

My daughter won’t eat what I can provide for her what can I do?

i am a single mom, and my daughter and i live off of ramen noodles, and liver scraps from the butcher’s assistant we know at the grocery store. here lately, though, she refuses to eat the meals i cook for her, and makes me take her to mcdonalds and she gets a small order of chicken nuggets, thats all she eats all day. i even tried deep fat frying the liver, but she wouldn’t touch it. i’m scared that one day she will become really sick from eating all the grease from mcdonalds food everyday. what should i do to get her to go back to eating what i cook her 3 times a day, the ramen noodles and liver scraps. i cant afford much more than what i spend on those foods. and no, i’m NOT going to resort to charity of food stamps and WIC. here is my weekly grocery list; cheese slices, ramen noodles, (free liver scraps), juice for her, pepsi, and vodka for me.
btw, my boyfriend helps pay for the vodka cuz he helps drink it. and i use the internet at the LIBRARY.

Jimmy answers:

Please resort to charity. It probably will only be temporary. If it’s food for your daughter, please think about it. I had to do it once for a few months and now that we’re better off, we try to give back. Don’t let pride stop you. Here’s some foods she may eat…lots of kids like goulash: Mix hamburger, tomato sauce, noodles and maybe some grated cheese and bake. Hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls with or w/o cheese and baked…most kids love that. Macaroni and cheese. As for veggies, I know it’s hard sometimes…try cut up carrots or any other veggie she will try, but serve with some veggie dip. Sometimes just presenting fruits and veggies differently will make them go for it…cut up apples with peanut butter spread on them or with caramel dip…banana slices with milk and sugar. Maybe corn on the cob…it’s not too expensive in the frozen food section and easy to make and kids like it usually. Peanut butter and jelly is okay…not perfect, but the pb is healthy. Canned fruit cocktail or the mini oranges. Even scrambled eggs mixed with little bits of cheese or pancakes would be okay. Eggs aren’t too expensive. I know groceries are expensive, but I would get some help. She and you cannot live on liver scraps and ramen. It’s not healthy at all. We all need help sometimes – don’t worry about it! I know kids who live on ramen and McNuggets and I don’t think it’s very good for them.

Sharon asks…

what type of food will do good at a 50s lunch counter.?

i am openning a 50s style lunch counter and i need to know what types of foods will do good. it will be for a lunch type of service with take-outs and phone in orders. we also have a counter and tables for the ones who want to eat at the restaurant.

Jimmy answers:

The standard lunch counter fare: HB’s, CB’s FF, OR’s, Chicken Salad (on a plate or sandwich), Tuna Salad (plate or sammie), Soup of the Day, Loaded Grilled Hot Dog. And don’t forget malts, shakes, sodas (MUST have nectar flavor!), and floats.

You may also want to do “Blue Plate Specials.” That just screams 50′s to me. Include things like a meat, 2 pre-chosen sides, and a roll or cornbread (if you’re in the south). On your other plates, you can let them choose the sides.

For either (ENTREES), I’m picturing Meat Loaf, Smothered Steak, Grilled or Fried Pork Chop, Baked Chicken Quarter, Fried Cnicken Quarter (cut up), Meatballs (or meat sauce) and spaghetti, Beef Stroganoff, Fried Fish, Broiled Fish, etc.

For SIDES, good ol’ home cooking like Mac & Cheese, REAL Mashed Potatoes (don’t even bother w/ flakes or buds), green beans, spinach, squash, WK corn, Corn on the Cob, Navy Beans, Lima Beans, Butter beans, Field Peas, Green Peas, Fried Okra, Okra & Tomatoes, Rice & Gravy, Cuke & Tomato Salad (in season), Applesauce (good to have on menu for kids), pasta salad, etc.

For BREADS, have corn bread, texas toast, garlic bread, or soft rolls where appropriate to the Blue Plate Special.

Soups of the Day: Cream of Tomato, CHicken Noodle, Chili (maybe everyday as a choice if you have hot dogs), Broccoli Cheese, Vegetable, Beef Vegetable, Chicken Tortilla….

If I owned a place w/ a BPS, I would use it to get rid of excess foods. Not garbage, but discount the price a bit to encourage folks to order it. If you’ve got a ton of Okra & Tomatoes L/O from yesterdayk, it’s on tomorrow’s BPS. (or make tomorrow’s soup of the day Chicken & Okra Gumbo! Get rid of it, but use it up, dont’ throw it out!)

Maybe research diner cars and soda shops. In Disney they hve a “Mom’s Diner” that would be a good thing to look at. (Research trip, donchaknow…)

Best Wishes!

George asks…

Can someone help me with a soft food diet?

See my duaghter has TMJ sooooo bad. She does have a new bite brace that is supposed to help in approx a year. But in the meantime……….

Anyway, you can only eat so much soup.. I know mashed potato is soft.. and she eats a lot of hamburger helper as it is easier on her jaw that a hamburger is… And hot dogs are sooo fatening…
