I feel like I won the lottery!

And here's why: If you are a regular reader, you know that I have a few struggles with two of my kids eating their food - any food. A light went on in my brain when I found spaghettio's in my cupboard today. It occurred to me that the tomato sauce would mask the taste of added pureed veggies and beef. And so I added two jars of beef and one jar of carrot baby food to the can of spaghettio's. After mixing it all up really well and heating for a little bit, TADA!!!! A really healthy lunch, packed with protein and veggies for my pickier than you could ever imagine toddler. He ate EVERY SINGLE BITE. I gave him almost 1/2 a cup...a huge portion for how little he normally eats. I feel so excited!!! I have enough left over for probably 2 or 3 more toddler bowls. The final score? Mom:1 Gideon:1.
