Food and Little Friends

These are the cookies Anna made at Kim's. The middle cookie is Anna's masterpiece :) She made it all by herself and she was very proud. Thanks again Kim for watching the kids so I could be at Grandma's surgery.

Today, I kept Kim's kids for a couple hours. I tried a new quesadilla recipe from my "Deceptively Delicious" cookbook. They were really good!
Jake really liked them!!! :) Better not try and take any of his food!

Everyone except my Anna liked them. At first little Anna didn't like them. She took one bite and said "yucky"! haha But then she tried it again and ate 2 pieces! Jacob ate one piece and Jake ate like 5! I also fixed some mac & cheese and they all had a little of that. And I just realized that there's a big carton of vinegar in the middle of the table. ha

We had fun and can't wait to play again :)

Here's the recipe (from the cookbook that sneaks pureed veggies into foods so you can make sure your kids get their veggies, whether they know it or not!)...well, this is my version of it!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
It calls for chicken breasts, cooked and either pureed or sliced. I didn't have anything but canned chicken. I rinsed and drained it and threw it in a skillet (one can); add a little salt & pepper. I also threw in a chicken bullion cube. Canned chicken has that funny taste, and that really did cover up that taste.
Spray a cookie sheet and lay out 3 tortillas. Spread sour cream on them (the recipe added 1/2 cup pureed navy beans to the sour cream). Lay out or spread the chicken over that. Mix together 1/2 cup pureed butternut squash and 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used the fiesta blend). Spread that over the chicken layer. Top with another tortilla. Bake for about 5 min, or until the cheese is melted. Slice into wedges and serve with salsa (if your kids eat salsa).
They were tasty!
