That's a wrap!

Do you have a picky eater?  We sure do!  Our youngest, Alexander, is three and is a super picky eater.  I've been working on getting him more involved in the prep/cooking process in an attempt to get him more interested and therefore eat better.  Today we made tortilla wraps for lunch:

Alexander loves mustard!  He spread it all over his tortilla.

Then he added his favorite... Macaroni-Cheese Han and of course some Cheese

Then he rolled it up... all by himself!  He's such a big boy!  :)

And he ate the whole dang thing!  Success!!

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Raspberry Picking with Alexander

Two weeks ago we took Alexander raspberry picking.  He dressed up in long sleeves and pants to protect his legs from the raspberry vines and his rainy day boots in hopes of a puddle to splash in.
