My family has a tomato obsession. We pop them like treats all hours of the day, but the latest batch we got was next level amazing. I had to hide a stash on the top of my fridge so they wouldn’t all get eaten before I could make something fun out of them!
When the kids were little(r), I was pretty desperate for them to eat some veggies. Ok maybe not “them,” one “them” in particular. But, I won’t name names. I used to cut carrots into little rounds, add some sugary sweetness, some cinnamon, and call them “carrot cookies.”
Riddle me this. Why are there no “healthy” restaurants that have a fun play area for kids? Why are the only restaurants that have designated kid areas fast food joints? I have a confession…
I think one of the hardest things to do is come up with quick and easy weeknight meals. I try my best to plan out my week, but I always have a handful of dinners that seem so rushed and thrown together. When I come across tips or shortcuts that make life run a bit smoother, I’m a sign me up, shout it from the rooftop kind of gal.
When I was little I used to get soft shell tacos from Taco Bell. I’d happily open them up, and use my spork to scoop out the insides. I’d methodologically eat the lettuce. Then the cheese. Then the meat. Because you have to save the best for last. Then I would bite two eye holes and a mouth hole in the soft shell and use it as a mask.
