WFMW: Chill out!

This is kind of stupid, but by the time I've finished making mac and cheese for my daughter (either the stove top kind or the microwave kind), she's jumping up and down in the kitchen yodeling, "I want my nooooooodles!" She has no patience for blowing on noodles, she wants them now. So, one day I threw in some frozen peas, straight out of the freezer and stirred them in.

The macaroni cooled quickly, the heat transfer was enough to thaw the peas, and I snuck a veggie into her lunch! Works for me!

Marvellous idea!

My autistic son hates hot food..I hope he'll eat the peas. Fingers crossed!

AHA! This will definitely work for us. My kids love peas. Wish I had thought of this years ago.
