Jameson, my 11 year old son, is awesome. He is so stinkin' clever and wise, and I never know what he's going to say next! This weekend, as he was running through the house, he stopped at my chair and said "You know what? Eating dessert first never killed anybody!"
After I finished laughing, I thought about what he said, and realized he was right. Eating dessert first never killed anybody, but boy can it be frustrating when your kids don't want to eat anything BUT dessert.
Jameson is SUCH a picky eater. Until the past year-or-so, I honestly don't know how he survived because it seemed like he didn't eat enough calories to keep him going. Obviously he did, but I'm afraid his "eat dessert first" mentality is the only way he did survive. Fortunately (?), his eating has definitely picked up over the past year, but finding things for him to eat other than pizza, burgers and chicken has been tough.

Through their recipe destination www.campbellskitchen.com, Campbell's gives you tons of new, kid-friendly recipes like Mini Chicken Pot Pies, and fun ways for your kids to eat tomato soup or chicken noodle soup.
I looked through all of their amazing and mouth-watering recipes, and immediately knew that their Pepperoni White Skillet Pizza recipe would be worth trying! Pepperoni, chicken, noodles, and Campbell's cream of mushroom soup...what's not to like?
I decided to make it on a work night, so to speed the process up for me, I cooked my chicken all day in the crock pot. (Chicken breasts and Swanson chicken broth, low, all day long). When I walked in the door, the house already smelled wonderful, but once I started putting together all the other ingredients, the house smelled AMAZING! Marty was as curious about the recipe as I was, and he helped me put everything together. Once we completed the last step, we couldn't even wait for the final cook time to take

OH MY WORD! It tasted FABULOUS! Marty and I spent a good 5 minutes just standing at the stove with forks eating straight from the pan! I guess it's a good thing we aren't germaphobes. Marty and I loved it, but the big question was, would Jameson like it?
Here's the big test...will he like it?
YES! Success! He liked it!!! He liked it!!
Look at that huge second bite!
So YES Jameson, "Eating dessert first never killed anybody", but it sure is nice for you to eat your DINNER first, every once in a while!
