puree away!

Found out about the sneaking the veggies in meals book from Bethany, and got a copy! The short version of the story(you can read the whole story here.) is the book I have is called Deceptively Delicious by Jerry Seinfelds wife Jessica, but the couple is being sued by a woman named Missy Lapine, who is claiming Jessica plagerized all the recipes. Whatever. I just want my kids to eat veggies. They can all sort that out.
Anyway, this afternoon I pureed away while listening to NPR. I have to admit, it was a fabulous afternoon. The boys ran around outside since it has been so warm out, and I watched them outside the kitchen window while pureeing my butternut squash, carrots, cauliflower, spinach, and broccoli! Tonight I made mac and cheese (with Cauliflower inside) and my boys ate every last bite. I am excited to try the other recipes in the book! So far it has been a great success!

I pureed butternut squash for my boys and froze it into ice cubes for my boys. They really liked it. Next I'm going to do Mango. We had dinner with a friend and she made pizza and put pureed spinach in the sauce and it was excellent!

That is so smart. I always want to use more Veggies for my boys. They are pretty good at eating them, but they don't get enough.
I will have to look into getting the book.
I am jelous you had good weather. We woke up to so much snow. I love the snow, but I am already getting spring fever. I just love going outside.
