My Three Kid Circus

This may be as crazy as it gets… but we're lovin' it!

It amuses me to no end that my daughter asked me to put asparagus spears in her lunch.  I mean really, what kid likes asparagus?

The Contents – apple bites, kiwi, mandarin orange slices, asparagus spears, turkey sandwich on oat and honey bread, oatmeal-raisin cookies

The Details – So it turns out that 2 of my kids like asparagus.  Plain, steamed asparagus.  And only the ends – the tips grossed them out, texture-wise.  I thought they made a nice addition to her lunchbox, eh?

We also made oatmeal-raisin cookies yesterday.  They are so yummy.  We used this recipe, but substituted the chocolate chips with raisins, only because I was out of chocolate chips.  With the chocolate chips, they are absolutely to-die-for.  We also added 1 tsp of cinnamon.

The Verdict – I have noticed that my daughter never eats her sandwiches anymore.  She eats all her fruits and veggies, plus whatever sweet I send.  Grrr…I guess its time to get creative again.  My boys, however, inhaled every last crumb in their boxes!
