Deceptively Delicious

We had kind of a rough time at our house last Sunday morning. Boy #2 kept scratching Boy #1's face, and Boy #1 was really upset about it. So I let him choose the cookbook for last week. i have no idea how he chose, but he picked jessica Seinfeld's "Deceptively Delicious." i took it one step further and let him pick the recipes, too. However, later in the week he never thought the recipes he'd chosen sounded good. Frankly, neither did i. one night i made the chicken nuggets recipe in there, and they were okay but pretty bland. i ended up doing a lot of spur of the moment dinners because whatever we'd chosen from DD just didn't sound good when it came time to make it. So i think i'm done with the cookbook. i think it's a great idea for people whose kids don't eat vegetables and need to sneak the nutrients to them somehow, but my kids love veggies. i usually have to fight with them to eat the other items on their plate before they can have more of whatever vegetable we're eating.

i didn't want to leave everyone guessing as to what the cookbook was for last week, but really nothing was worth posting. So don't worry, you didn't miss anything!

i wasn't all that impressed with it either. although we did really like the coconut/pineapple chicken tenders and the "buttered noodles" but that was about it i believe. the blueberry muffins were an epic fail!
