Someone's In The Kitchen

What the heck is this you ask?
Well, you see, it has something to do with this:

and this:That's right. I'm trying to be a little healthier and fool myself my child into eating vegetables. Above is a picture of my very own pureed carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and sweet potato.

There is cauliflower in the mac and cheese.

It was actually delicious.

I love this book! The recipes are fun, some are really really good, some not so much. But they give me a good platform to expound on and with a few alterations, they've all turned out yummy.

Just don't smell what you're cooking because it, um, well, ain't pretty.

There is a recipe for brownies with spinach in them.

I am a little nervous to try it as Brownies are my one true love and I would hate to taint their sacred name...

You have to serve them cold to avoid tasting the spinach...

I'll let you know how they turn out...

That sounds like a great book...but as strange as it seems. I need it to trick my husband. He's the one who wont eat his veggies. My kids love them!! and believe it or not their favorite veggie is Broccoli! How did I get so lucky? :-)

I love that book too. I don't have it, but I have a friend who does and she loved the french toast with sweet potatoes??? I think that's what it was. Delish! Send me some brownies - I would eat them - remember I'm a crazy spinach eating fool.

Story. . . yesterday, I was making my morning "green monster" and it was looking good. . . lots of spinach, blueberries, yogurt. . . Mmmmmm. Ashie was having a bad day and so I had her sitting on the counter next to me while I was making it. . . (mistake number 1) I took the lid off to add just a few more ice cubes and . . . yep, you guessed it. She pushed the ON button on the blender. Picture two cups finely ground spinach and a cup of blueberries. . . all over my kitchen. It was beautiful. I'm usually the type that takes a picture of moments like that, but. . . I just screamed instead. I'm a bad mom. Lesson learned.
