Is anyone else sick of the weekly grocery grind? I'm so tired of trying to figure out each week nutritional and interesting things for my family to eat (and things that the kids will eat, not just the adults). Everything has to be fairly easy but healthy. We try like heck to get vegetables into these squirts of ours, but unless it is the new V8 juice that they don't realize is 1/2 veggies, it is a chore.
Thanks to my friend Karen who sent this great link on getting kids to eat their veggies (besides V8) it is also available in the comments to this post. Thanks Karen -- I LOVE IT.
Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack... My kids are so picky these days, it is hard to fathom. I almost fell over this evening 'cause the girl asked for "hot dogs." She got them in the form of veggie dogs in baked beans (an old standard in our day) but she wasn't having it. She ate her dog seperately along with some corn and called it a night.
To our amazement, the boy said the following: "These weanies'n'beanies are SOOOOOOOO yummy!" We gave him a high five!" You take it where you get it!
And by the way... speaking of technology (as I did in my last post I believe), I am writing this after succumbing for the 2nd time to online grocery shopping (maybe it is #3 or 4 as we did it when our son was first born and had it delivered to our door). Hadn't done it since but ... with our crazy schedules it seems to be great to order tonight and have the hubby pick up manana! Plus I am glad to be able to order online when I can have a large selection of organic and locally grown. Even if it does cost us a few bucks extra.
Anybody else ever grocery shop online?
