Happy Monday, I have some exciting new to announce_Margot Core_won the Colavita Gift Basket. I am so excited for you! Let me tell you how my own basket has changed my and my children’s life this last week.
I am a pretty healthy eater, and want my children to be as well. It seriously kills me when I go on vacations or out for the day and the only food my kids will eat are kids meals, corn dogs, or ice cream. Even when we are home all they really want is sugary cereal, grilled cheese, mac and cheese, pancakes, cheese quesadillas.
This week I decided to have the kiddos try new things and to get there veggies. Instead of mac & cheese we made Bow-Tie Pasta Salad w/ Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Black Olives, Feta and Spinach.
I was able to bust out my iron pan and cook a delicious pasta loaded with veggies vs the boxed mac and cheese.
The kids also have weak spot for pizza. So despite my fear in whipping up a homemade pizza we used the Colavita Top Your Pizza Cookbook to make margaritta pizzas. I used the Colavita cooking oils instead of who knows what they use in mass produced markets. I felt better feeding my children easy to make pizza, knowing that I am giving them a healthier version of what they really wanted to eat.
Some recipes I am going to attempt this upcoming week are going to be…
-Twist on Italian
-Quick & Tasty
-Bow Tie Pasta (again)
