I'm stuck in a food rut. I have no idea what to cook lately.
I have me, my elderly grandmother and my boys (12 and 10). My nana is allergic to all fish and shellfish, as well as black pepper. She won't eat whole grains or most vegetables, and doesn't like turkey. She complained recently that I make pasta too often. (However, she'd eat a Wendy's hamburger every day if I went there for her...)
My boys will eat almost ANYTHING, but they are not fans of anything too spicy. Or anything with eggplant.
I love to cook, but I'm tired of feeling like a short-order cook and having to make 2 or even THREE meals to get through dinner w/o someone pitching a fit. (Hint: It's NOT always the kids!) I'm so bored w/ food lately that I'm losing my appetite.
Can someone suggest something new???

Cook what you like and create a balanced diet, those who you are feeding can eat what is served or go without. I don't have a lot of tolerance for whining about the food you are served and my kids know this. If you don't like it you can find your own dinner, but I don't want to hear about it. I like to browse through recipes at http://www.allrecipes.com/ for new ideas when I'm stuck.
