I love cooking good food for my family, and trying new foods and recipes. I think our family does fairly well, too, with keeping things pretty healthy. Since I just went grocery shopping last night, and have lots of interesting food to fix, I thought you might find it amusing to walk through a 'food day' at the Curtis household. By the way, this is what we all ate today (except for Noah, of course!) Cosette and Eli have always been expected to eat whatever is served to them, and they rarely, if ever, say they don't like something. So, drum roll, please.....
Today, breakfast was this new oatmeal that I just discovered on the shelf at WalMart. It has no sugar added, and is made with real grains, flaxseed and plant sterols. It had real blueberries in it, and, when mixed with a little milk, tasted like blueberries and cream. Yum! Cosette and Eli were going "Mmmm, Mommy, this is GOOD!", the whole time they were eating it.
We had a grapefruit and some pretzels for a snack mid-morning, because my children simply can't survive until lunch time without a snack ;)
For lunch, we tried this new whole wheat 'flat bread'. I usually make our own bread, but this looked too good to pass up. It was! I toasted it just a little, and made a sandwich out of mayo, homemade chicken salad, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and pickles. (Gotta have the pickles!!!) I looked over at Cosette's plate, and the whole sandwich was there. I looked over a few minutes later, and it was completely gone. So, thumbs up for this sandwich! We topped it off with a few pretzels, fresh strawberries, and one oreo cookie a piece :)
