Lets talk about feeding toddlers….it sucks. Landon was so good about vegetables for the longest.
Now… all we want is mac and cheese and the cheap stuff. I mean that nasty orange powder cannot be good for you.
No matter how I try to “health” it up such as adding chickpeas
… doesn’t that just make ya want to take a bite
… or using whole grain pasta with alpha hydroxy in it
….no not alpha hydroxy
…that’s in makeup
… it’s omega fatty acids….something like that
I receive that same response …
“it yukky Mommy”
So I have resorted to hiding it in their food and bribery with candy.
“Mommy why da eggs green”
“well honey… this is a special type of green egg… from Chile”
…. And as we seem to have contaminated about 80 billion domestic eggs with salmonella, this seems a plausible argument.
“wow Mommy — dey from Chile’s? Dat is so crazy.”
Their eggs have either cauliflower (delish I must say) or spinach in them. And… they frequently dine on spaghetti laced w/ carrots and broccoli…. Brilliant you say… yes indeed it is.
And also I saw it in Jessica Simpson’s cookbook. Really she has some great recipes….
Is that rigtht? Jessica Simpson? I think I mean Jessica Seinfeld…. yea that one.
Close though right ….same initials.
I like Jessica Simpson
… isn’t she the one
“is it chicken or is it tuna… … its chicken right.. I mean its says Chicken of the Sea?”
I always feel really smart when she is speaking
… and you know I need that now.
