Well,if you go through my blog, you would always notice that most of my recipes are my own innovations and all those were ways to incorporate veggies into the yummy stuff !!! My kids are very picky eaters, especially when it comes to veggies and hence I need to work my brain in such a way that , neither they find out what is hidden nor do they develop a dislike for their yummy food. A tough job indeed !!!!
So this post is no different. It is vacation time down here and this is the best time to serve hot hot food to kids that they love , and get the maximum and nutritious food into them. As usual I had some veggies with me and I was breaking my head to put them into my menu in a hidden manner, that is when the beef gave me a good smile…:)
I immediately knew what I should be doing…..;)..he he he…… You know that wicked smile just popped on my face and my hubby instantly said” You are upto some mischief !!!” Trust me, you kids would love you for this. They never had the faintest idea that all that they hated was in there in their favorite dish and I was so happy to see them licking their fingers and asking for more….Oh! what a great feel when you see your lil ones having healthy food, and happy that you could play the trick on them !!!! ;)
Since it was a quick make and light going down, could`nt take as many clicks as I wanted…:(
