I got Jessica Seinfeld’s book, Deceptively Delicious, out from the library this past week in a feeble attempt to get my child to eat more than yogurt, oatmeal, the occasional apple or banana, and crackers.
The first recipe, Mac N Cheese with pureed butternut squash, was a monumental failure. I roasted, I pureed, I boiled, I drained, I mixed, all during Sweet Pea’s nap.
Here you see the picky eater eyeing it.
It doesn’t look like the stuff from the box, mom.
Doesn’t stick on the spoon the same way.
Nope, not even going to try more than a miniscule sampling. No thank you no thank you no thank you.
I should have just taken a nap too.
