Husband gave me the idea for tonight's dinner. He wanted a frittata. So during the day, I slow-roasted tomatoes and sautéed mushrooms in order to add some umami to the eggs, but I knew in the back of my mind that I was taking a risk with the boys not eating any of it.

Then it occured to me - what if we each made our own mini frittatas?

We've had "Make Your Own Pizza" nights and "Make Your Own Sushi" nights, and those dinners were always a hit with the boys because they were in control of their food. They'll eat what they made because they make what they'll eat.

Tonight was no different.

The minis, a success.
