This is Big pup. He's 7, loves babies, and wants to be a policeman/truckdriver/train conductor/race car driver when he grows up. He's also a picky eater.
He likes spaghetti, but with no sauce. He will only eat hamburger buns, no meat. He loves McDonald's chicken nuggets but spits them out anywhere else. Goldfish are yummy, Cheez Its are gross. And don't even think of trying to trick him into eating Great Value blueberry muffins, it has to be Martha White. Actually, I'll let him slide on that one, I can tell a difference too. My point? HE IS PICKY!
So when I noticed that the topic of Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals yesterday was called Parent's Best Friend, I was very interested.
But then she made battered fish fillets topped with tomato sauce, cheese, and lots of basil. And then she made pita chips topped with artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, and spinach. And then she said if you cover it with cheese, kids won't even notice the spinach. She also said that I'm a bad mother and I'm the one preventing him from trying new foods and he really, really wants to eat an octopus because he's braver than I think and just because I'm his mother doesn't mean I know what he likes and dislikes because, hello, what kid doesn't like chicken parm?!
Mine, Rachael. Trust me.
