You guys, I've decided to go on a massive diet. I'm going to omit food for 16 days, and only drink beet juice with kale and cayenne and maybe the occasional jar of baby food and... OKAY I CAN'T, April Fools! It's still April 1st, right? Food, you're my favorite and I'll never quit you.
Ok, moving on from my lame prank... while I don't really believe in "diets" I DO believe in tricking your kids to eat vegetables. I wish it didn't have to come to that in my household, but alas, it does. So I introduce to you... the Cauliflower Quesadilla! To be honest, my kids eat cauliflower on their own, but I'll gladly shove it in other foods if it means they're getting an extra oomf of vegetables. Oomf? Who am I what am I saying?? Anyway, it's white, it can be pulverized into a rice-like constancy, it's basically the perfect April Fool's Day vegetable. Last night, I made cauliflower rice and added it to our quesadillas with ground turkey and Mexican cheese. Delicious, for kids and grown ups alike! It just added a little something extra, and I promise I won't say "oomf" again, ever.
Etta loved it, in between nose pickings.
