With 2 hungry kids, one hungry husband and not enough time in the day, I am a sucker for one dish wonders. If I can get all of the parts of my balanced meal into one pot, one pan and one easily served dinner than I am one happy mama.
I threw this together last night at the last minute…when I discovered that we wouldn’t be going out for dinner after all and it was a big hit. You could totally change up the veggies depending on season, what you have in the house or on the particularly pickiness/allergies of the members of your family.
I found the inspiration for this recipe over at the Vitamin G blog on Glamour magazine's website and am raring to try it out on my kids sometime this week. I plan to use blueberries and to use a splash of maple syrup or a couple of tablespoons of sugar instead of the honey to make it friendly to my 11 month old (honey isn't considered safe until a year+). We'll see how it goes 🙂 and I'll post any other changes that I make.
So, yesterday it was my son’s 2nd birthday and we had a pretty great party. We rented a room at DramaZone (the venue at which we are currently holding our classes) and I ordered a ton of Elmo Plates and assorted sundries pretty reasonably priced from the Oriental Trading Company. We had my son’s Music Together teacher, Danny, come to entertain the restless natives for a bit…many mini bagels and other finger foods were consumed by all–and then it was time for the piece de resistance–the Elmo cake that I had been icing at 3am the night before instead of getting some much-needed beauty sleep.
