My children are really good about eating their vegetables. But what mother wouldn't want their child to get even more into their diet? Almost two years ago I bought Jessica Seinfeld's book, Deceptively Delicious, in a quest to get my youngest to eat her veggies. It worked then, but finding time to puree is difficult during the school year. So, I decided to puree some veggies today. Today I spent about 2 hours steaming and pureeing carrots, butternut squash, spinach, and sweet potatoes. Over the next few weeks my children will be getting more veggies hidden in some of their favorite meals(english muffin pizzas, grilled cheese, mac n cheese). My two oldest will know about the deception, but not my four year old. (Although she may figure it out.) Wish me luck!
Since the summer of '09 I have been keeping track of the funny things that my youngest says. We refer to them as Trinity-isms. Enjoy! I will post newer ones to the top.
