surreptitious cuisine

yep. don't you just love that adjective? i just heart it.
know what else i heart? when my husband calls me on the way home from work and asks, "What's for dinner?" and I reply, "Sneaky (insert food item here)."
Sneaky pasta sauce (with pureed garlic, onions, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini & sweet potatoes) w/whole grain spaghetti, check.
Sneaky "chocolate ice cream shake" = bananas/yogurt/applesauce/honey/wheat germ and/or "green juice" (which is basically spinach juice) with an itty bitty teaspoon of cocoa powder, check.
Sneaky Mac n Cheese (yes, Easy Mac all you want baby) w/pureed cauliflower, carrots, zucchini & sweet potatoes & extra sharp cheddar tillamook, check.
Sneaky Grilled Cheese on Whole Wheat Bread w/ the orange blend (carrots/sweet potatoes) hidden in there, well....1/2 check. She filled up on the smoothie, and apparently only eats grilled cheese sandwiches for our Grandma and when Holden is here, but not for Mama.
I am LOVING the Sneaky Chef. Scott and I both agreed that that pasta sauce was darn near our most favorite homemade sauce, yet...and there wasn't a teensy bit of basil or spice!
If you have a picky toddler, or want to learn how to make your own babyfood, or even a picky husband or wife (yes, me), this book will drastically change your life.
Hooray for food. Hooray for healthy baby girls!!!!
