I made this one evening when Tony was working, so it was just the boys and me. I served up dinner and called the boys in. Cole came rushing in first, took one look at dinner, and left. Then Bennett entered, looked at his plate, and left. Epic dinner FAIL! I thought it looked nice and colourful and appetizing but apparently not to the children. So I ate my dinner by myself and I enjoyed it.
