Steven has a classmate coming to tea next Tuesday. Believe it or not this lad only eats beige food. What can I feed him? We don't normally have beige food in this house. :unsure:

Yep, we all need to know now. :p015:

Seriously? What does qualify as beige where food is concerned? :unsure:

I mean, is it toast? Is it macaroni and butter (with our without egg)? :unsure:

I'd ask his parents what the best thing to offer him would be. Or, perhaps he can bring a packed lunch from home if his dietary restrictions are too complicated to comply with? :unsure:

Pwrhaps his Mum is just a bad cook and he thinks food should be burnt. :D

If I tell you all I fell down a hill today and really hurt my shoulder would you all be a bit more sympathetic to my plight? :unsure:

And the last time I checked none of you were called Claire. :dozey:

She's the beige food expert on this forum. :D

Tink
17-09-2008, 04:32 PM
I'm sorry you hurt yourself (how did you manage to fall down a hill anyway) but that doesn't help me to know what qualifies as beige. How can we help if we don't know the parameters? :unsure:

Claire

Ignore them all Dawn! They know nothing on the matters of beige food!

In our house Maisie will partake in the following

Chips.
Chicken Nugget batter. Just the batter mind.
Ready Salted crisps.
Brown rice.
Wholemeal spaghetti
Wholemeal bread with a nod towards raspberry jam in the middle.
Sausage skins.
Breadcrumbs from fishcakes, fishfingers etc.
Wheatabix.
Rice Crispies.

PS hope you feel better soon! Ouch!

Dawn
17-09-2008, 04:35 PM
All I've ever seen him eat is the pastry from a sausage roll. The sausage is not beige.

Ah yes. We've moved away from the pastry from sausage rolls. That worked for us because Owen would only eat the sausage. Jack Sprat and all that!

Rice crispies and chips it is then. Do I put milk on the rice crispies? :unsure:


And for the record I was geocaching with the doggle on the side of a really steep chalk hill and slipped. And I didn't find the stupid cache. :mad:

That would be a no in our house but you might have to ask your young guest if he wants the rice crispies and chips on separate plates.

I once bought some rice crispie cakes from the school summer fair. They were not chocolate. The person who made them had used marmite. I kid you not.

Tink
17-09-2008, 04:42 PM
Yeouch! :eek: Good that you only hurt your shoulder. :hug2:

Wow, Claire. That's a pretty challenging "menu." You earn even more points in my book for what must be extreme patience. :hug2:

Tink
17-09-2008, 04:43 PM
Marmite rice krispie cakes?
:laugh:

I'm sorry but that is just too much!

:laugh:

Dawn
17-09-2008, 04:44 PM
Oooh I know he eats crisps because that's in his lunchbox everyday - a marmite sandwich and a packet of crisps.

I'm going to try and catch his mum in the playground before Mr Tesco does our delivery.

Is there a reason for all of this beige food eating?

Britchick
17-09-2008, 04:47 PM
i have marmite rice cakes and they are very nice- i have them with pineapple cottage cheese on them

Dawn
17-09-2008, 04:48 PM
None of those are beige though are they? :lol:

Tink
17-09-2008, 04:55 PM
A rice cake is different than a rice krispie cake though? :unsure: I'm picturing marshmallow based sweet cake with the rice krispie cake. The rice cake as marmite, I can understand (not like mind!) but marmite and marshmallows? Oh ultra, super duper, uber YUCK! :eek:

Britchick
17-09-2008, 05:36 PM
i was thinking that it was a savoury marmite rice cake:yes:

sorry Dawn:rolleyes008: most unlike me to derail a thread

Hmm just beige food hmmm? I yelled at Alysia the other day when we went to the Cracker Barrell and she ordered the "vegetable" plate. You can get 4 side items. She had dumplins, mashed potatoes, corn and something else in the starchy, beigish category.

Dawn

I have an update after asking his mum.

Chips
Plain pasta
Plain chicken
Marmite sandwiches
Mashed potato
Crisps

and...

Cheese pizza :207:

We're having pizza tomorrow. :D

lisaw
22-09-2008, 12:35 PM
Yay! Pizza is always a nice easy one :D

Dawn
22-09-2008, 12:39 PM
Yep. Aiden can have plain pizza and Steven can put his own toppings on. :D

Cheese isn't beige! It's yellow (or orange if you count Red Leicester)!

Dawn
22-09-2008, 12:56 PM
It's not beige but he definitely eats it. :D

Dawn
22-09-2008, 12:56 PM
Oh and a tip for you.

Apparently if you mash cauliflower really finely you can hide it in the mashed potato and they'll never notice. :lol:

So glad I haven't got a picky eater.

Claire
22-09-2008, 12:59 PM
It's not beige but he definitely eats it. :D

So there's hope for Maisie yet!

As for the cauliflower tip, Maisie watches me prepare the food like a hawk. Unless Cartoon Network is on.......

Dawn have you checked if he can have food on the same plate. My sons friend has to have a plate for each portion of food.

Dawn
22-09-2008, 01:22 PM
I've seen him eat at parties and he only has one plate.

He only drinks water or blackcurrant fruit shoots. Water in our house then. :lol:

Taja
22-09-2008, 03:01 PM
Yikes! And I consider myself a picky eater! And so does everyone I know!

At least I never had issues with food on the same plate--I just didn't like it mixed together or bumping into each other. Still don't! :lol:

Perhaps Aiden will be curious when Steven does his own pizza toppings and become a bit more adventurous. :)

Have to admit, pizza is one of those things I don't eat--can't have tomato based products. Allergies combined with picky eating habits sometimes are no fun! :sigh;

Tink
22-09-2008, 03:24 PM
There are any number of pizza types that don't have tomaotes or red sauce. Olive oil and garlic based sauce with cheese (goat's cheese is wonderful) and spinach is very nice. :yes: Tiny bits of sausage and mushroom (and I do mean tiny) add some texture and good flavor too.

I don't like red sauce much (and nearly every commercial pizza that uses red sauce puts way too much on it YUCK) so I've had great fun experimenting with combinations that make nice pizza without red sauce. :yes:

Not saying that a child who is very particular would jump at the chance, but I've any number of happy friends and family after having homemade pizza that wasn't sogged down with gloppy sauce and doughy crust. Ick.

Dawn

Well he ate the cheese and tomato pizza. Except the crust. Which is beige. :rofl:

You obviously have the touch with these children. Expect Maisie by daybreak. She will be labeled.

He's expanding his horizons? :unsure:

Unless you made the crust out of healthy flour instead of bleached white flour.

Glad it went well! :D

Tink
23-09-2008, 10:13 PM
I'm having a hard time picturing that.. :unsure: He ate the pizza and the dough, leaving behind the edge crust, or he scraped the tomato and cheese off and ate that leaving the entire crust behind? :unsure:

I have a niece who scrapes everything off the pizza and eats only the dough. Why bother! Just order bread for Pete's Sake! :rolleyes2:

Dawn
24-09-2008, 06:05 AM
He just left the edge crust - the bits that had no topping on them. :rofl:

He's a lovely lad though, perfectly behaved, remembered all his please and thank yous. Welcome back anytime.

Steven is going to his house next week, wonder what they will feed him. :unsure:

lisaw
24-09-2008, 12:03 PM
Thay might be pleased to have a child visit who eats well and overload him with veggies. My fussy friends mum used to love me going to tea as it meant she could go overboard on the veg as I eat any and she wouldn't buy too much just for herself. :)

Tink
24-09-2008, 12:05 PM
Well, sounds like he had a good time! I'm sure Steven will be fine. :yes: Perhaps his friend will be a bit more adventurous with food if he sees Steven eating all sorts of other things. :yes:

24-09-2008, 06:35 PM
LOL- I used to love veggies ect when I was little, my friend, Kevin (who I went to WDW with) was VERYY fussy. He used to soak EVERYTHING in vinegar, to the point you could smell it a mile off. He also used to eat his food, and then drink a mouth full of juice at the same time!! EUGHHH
