I can't believe I really made that dinner

We all like to consider ourselves perfect when it comes to meals we serve our family. It's nice to think that we can serve 21 nutritious meals a week. Let's face it. We aren't perfect.

I live by the 80% rule. If we eat healthy 80% of the time, I'm happy. Don't get me wrong, I don't give Emma anything but breast milk, formula and vegetables.

Tonight, I made tater tot casserole for dinner.  I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, but it tasted great and made an inexpensive meal with plenty of leftovers for lunches.

What meal do you serve your family that isn't super healthy?
