Making Dinner for a Picky Family

mixtapepanda | Sep 11, 201609:41 PM     13

...the rules look like this: we have two people with heartburn, both are triggered by fried things, one is triggered by meat, the other is triggered by tomatoes (they say they can take heart burn relief medication before dinner, but I don't want to put them in a bad spot); also have a child who won't each ANYTHING that contains or has been touched by bell peppers of any color, zucchini, squash, or peas.
And I have a dairy allergy!
We've exhausted most basic chicken, salmon, and pasta dishes, and everyone is apparently offended by tofu, even the heartburn victims who don't want to eat much meat.
....any suggestions on how to satisfy this crowd?
