I got an awesome comment today from jharrisece on my Roni’s “They don’t know what’s in there” Pizza Sauce post today…
I tried your recipe and within a few days I had to make a second batch! With a picky 12 year old and even pickier husband (the 2 year old eats better than them!) this worked great, they didn’t even know what they were eating since it was put through the blender. I added some cauliflower and a red pepper to it and the second time around I used squash instead of zucchini. I added V8 juice to the second batch to make it into pasta sauce and that worked well too! It was so good that my picky niece was eating the sauce straight!
Thanks for all your great recipes. My 12 year old likes to look at the pictures and choose some to try. Next week it is the cupcakes!
Seriously, this makes me feel so good! I mean to know that some silly little idea I had to get more veggies in my niece has spread to other unsuspecting children (and husbands) makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. It really does. I mean I love showing others it’s not only possible to eat healthy but it tastes good!
I also love seeing my little guy eat the good stuff. Today I’m especially proud. This morning we had a fabulous breakfast together. The toddler had a cheese omelet, grapes and half a whole wheat English muffin with almond butter and blueberry fruit spread. Is that the breakfast of champions or what?
For dinner, I made turkey burgers on whole wheat English muffins. He ate half of one with a side of asparagus (seriously a 2 year old that eats asparagus, is that normal? LOL) and cantaloupe for dessert.
God knows what he had at daycare but when I have him eating like that at home I don’t worry about it as much.
So enough patting myself on the back, I just felt really good today (hence the title of the post) and had to share.
