^^Green smoothie blend! I’ve been making them with banana, milk, oats, Vega Coconut Almond, peanut butter, and lots of spinach.
I’ve been having lots of luck with Mazen’s eating. I think the increase in effort is paying off. I made chicken noodle soup and he ate a deconstructed version. He still needs a lot of nudging to try something, but I am very pleased with the amount of foods he has tasted lately. (Celery!) He ate the bread first (duh), then one noodle, then one bite of chicken, and then we had to talk about the veggies which eventually all got eaten. Just.Keep.Trying. I am fairly confident in a year he will be a pretty good eater. (Knock on wood!)
The little rascal!
Another night we had Cook Smarts baked ziti with broccoli. This meal was actually a huge success after an initial protest. [My broccoli has some blue cheese dressing on top!]
For lunch the next day I had leftover ziti with a kale and feta salad.
This dinner was enjoyed during Karen’s visit. We made steak and baked potatoes with salad on the side.
And finally, Sarah, Gaby, and I did a joint dinner with all the kids. We pretended they were in a restaurant and waited on them. It was cute!
The moms had Ina Garten’s Curried Chicken Salad that I made and brought over. I cooked the chicken in the Smart Bowl set and it worked really well! I sliced it into pieces first and then microwaved in the bowls for about 3 minutes (in two batches). It wasn’t dry at all!
Served over greens with a zucchini bread “donut” Sarah made on the side : )
Hope you are having a great week!
