Okay, so the Deceptively Delicious lasagna was a hit with 3 out of 4 of us again... I've decided Ian is just going to eat what he wants to eat, WHEN he wants to eat it. He's 3. Eventually, we'll have more influence on him. Last night, I put spinach and red pepper purees in the spaghetti sauce, and it was DELICIOUS. Ian took one bite of his beloved spaghetti and hated it. I would be inclined to think he knew about it because he's overheard us talking about it or seeing it go in, but no... he was sleeping as I cooked. So no way. The kid just has hypersensitive taste buds... hey, he comes by it honestly! I could identify olive purees in spaghetti sauce back in the day! :p
So we're back to square one... I'll sneak veggies in where I can, when I can... otherwise, I'm not going to worry about it. We didn't eat too poorly before Deceptively Delicious came into our lives... committing to COOKING rather than eating out is half the battle, I think... and that's definitely something I can do. I made Splenda/applesauce brownies that were a hit, so I can still sneak 'em healthy stuff.
