The other night we achieved a big milestone at our house. The same dinner was eaten by all four members of our family.

My picky four-year-old gobbled these up. My one-year-old, who makes a habit of shoving everything within reach, straight into his mouth as delighted (as always). My husband and I, who are trying to eat healthy and wanted to try quinoa, had to show restraint so as to not wrestle these little morsels away from our children and holler, “MORE FOR ME!”

I hope you’re getting the “these were delicious” vibe, because that’s what I’m trying to get across here.

Go get the recipe for Mini Ham and Cheese Quinoa Cups from Iowa Girl Eats and make them this week.

*Note: I tweaked the recipe a bit and used broccoli instead of zucchini.
