It never fails: fall comes and I get the cooking bug.
The pumpkins start coming in and the crisp apples. Pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins, quick breads. All kinds of squash, cider.
And! – The crockpot! I’m loving it. It’s just so dang easy. You can put anything in there- forget about it for a few hours, come back and you have a most delicious meal. I’ve been visiting A Year of Slow Cooking pretty regularly.
A few days ago, I thought maybe I’d make some sweet potato muffins (which were super yummy) and sneak the sweet potato in so my daughter would never know. She caught me putting those things in and promptly declared: I am not having any! Sweet potatoes are yucky!!
You don’t know what you’re missing kid!
Kind of puts a damper on your enthusiasm for cooking when your kid is the pickiest eater on the planet. At least, it seems so.
Delicious three cheese broccoli soup?
Even with the yummy cheese? Pretty please?
Mo-om, what are these green things in the muffins? Zucchini?
No, no. They’re apples, baby, apples.
It’s always a challenge to get the girl to eat actual, healthy food. What are some of your tips and tricks to get the kids to eat their veggies and just healthier in general?
