i am a sneaky one!

actually, i should say--"I am a tricky one!" that is how "M" would say it if he knew the one i pulled over on him tonight! he is my picky, picky eater. i worry about him. he loves pancakes--so i make them often. tonight as i was getting ready to make them i saw a partial can of pumpkin in the fridge. do i dare??? yes!!!!! he loved it and i just kept my mouth shut about it! he didn't seem to notice. in fact, he ate 3!!!!!!! yay! a veggie!!!!!!!
this might not seem like a victory to some of you, but for any of you that have little ones like "M" you will understand my joy!!!!!!!!

Here is one you could test out...puree cauliflower...and mix in batter
I know you can hide it well in potatoes if he will eat potatoes!

Have you seen Jessica Seinfeld's kid cookbook? It's all about hiding pureed veggies in foods kids like. It's probably not worth running out to buy, but I agree with pam, you can add pureed cauliflower to almost anything. I've added pureed broccoli, carrots, squash to my spaghetti sauce and no one could tell the difference~

Yum, I LOVE pumpkin pancakes.
I wonder if my daughter would know the difference. She used to love pumpkin choc. chip cookies, that is until she saw me put the pumpkin in! KIDS! Gotta love them.
Believe it or not, the only veggie she will eat is broccoli! Strange child.
I'm trying the pancakes this week with butter, cinnamon and powdered sugar. mmmmm, my mouth is watering already! :)

Oh, you're good. I can relate all-too-well to the picky eater. It really adds this extra trial to life, doesn't it?
