Spring has arrived!!! For this family it not only means warmer weather and brightened spirits it means that my cooking skills are challenged more regularly.
Spring days here with a 5 and 7 year old are spent outside riding on bicycles, scooters, calling on friends repeatedly, jumping in any puddles they can find and general merriment with a gaggle of other little people in the ‘hood who are feeling that Spring feeling.
Generally speaking this means more visitors to our kitchen. The front hallway will be scattered with scuffed up sneakers, bike helmets and rubber boots depending on the day. Giggles and ear splitting screams of little people excitement fill the house during these times.
The shift from the sluggish little girls ‘o Winter to the lively Spring girls is sudden. The axis of our Earth shifted this past weekend when the temperatures were a mere plus 1 degrees Celsius but Mr Sun was shining brightly.
As the clock hit 11am I knew what was in store so being the culinary challenged Mom I am I did what I do best I hit the computer for inspiration and detailed direction.
There are a few sites I rely upon to provide sustenance to my little ladies, one of which is Kraft Canada.
Here I find easy to follow, healthy recipes which the girls love.
They even have a handy recipe finder where you just list in ingredients you have on hand and hit enter….viola recipes are provided for a horrible planner like me.
I know that my Mum wouldn’t be surprised by this behavior of mine, her amazing ability to whip up something delicious out of seemingly nothing was not passed along to me.
When I realized that I have this behavior this past weekend it occurred to me that there is a possibility that one day I will not be able to access the Internet…GASP, NO!!!!
How will my dear children’s hunger be satisfied then???
And so I figured this is a great forum to get recipes and cooking/kitchen tips from my blogger friends who are more talented than I am.
Can you share your fave tip or spring recipe with me?
