Let's Get Cooking
Everyone seems to be talking about the new book "Deceptively Delicious" by Jessica Seinfeld. Denise, Garrett's step-mom, ordered it for me for my birthday and it just arrived yesterday. I hadn't even heard of it when she told me she ordered it, but now it's all I have been hearing about. The idea of it, for those of you that haven't heard yet, is showing ways to sneak in vegetables or fruits into kids foods in order to get them to eat healthier. Of course, it would be better if we didn't have to sneak, but let's face it....especially with my kids, if they know there are vegetables in there they won't go near it. I made some pasta with alfredo sauce the other day with broccoli in it. I scooped out some for the kids but Kevin saw the little bits of broccoli in there and then it was considered "ruined". Anyway, I am going to try some of the recipes. I have to go shopping first though. Her way of adding vegetables in is to puree a variety of items and keep them on hand to add into recipes. It will be like I'm preparing the homemade baby food again. I'll let you know when I make the first meal or maybe I'll start with dessert and see how it goes.
