Quick, easy, kid friendly dinner?

Quick, easy, kid friendly dinner?
Tonight we're decorating our jack o'lanterns for Halloween. The other half gets home from work just in time for dinner, so I'm trying to think of a quickly-eaten, easy-to-clean-up dinner so we can work on our pumpkins right after eating.

I thought of hot dogs, but I don't have enough on hand (plus I was planning on making "mummy dogs" for dinner on Halloween, and don't want to serve them again so soon).

Any ideas? I, unfortunately, have very picky stepkids, which makes it harder.

I'd do toasted cheese and soup, but half of them hate soup and would just flat out reject the meal. Dodgy

The kids suggested pizza. My wallet says no. Undecided

I think I'm making chili and cornbread. Two of them will still complain, but I have leftovers they can choose from instead.

If they don't like either of those options, their choices are "take it or leave it". Wink

My granddaughter is fussy to but she does like pasta which is easy to cook. Her favourite is pasta with a tin of tuna mixed in topped with cheese.

Someone else recently introduced me to the idea of spaghetti with tuna, which is an idea I never considered. I probably should have thought of it at some point, as I used to like tuna noodle casserole quite a bit (a drained can of tuna mixed with cooked noodles or pasta and a cream sauce, sometimes also mixed with peas and/or cheese, and then baked).

I think anything oat based can be good for kids. but not sure about the oats intake in winter. because that may not be good for body if it's too much intake.

They tend to have oats for breakfast more than dinner.

I have to be careful I don't eat too much porridge as it makes my system overactive and i spend too much time in the toilet Confused
