It’s not wrong of people to assume that my kid’s are great eaters… I would too, given the fact that they are constantly exposed to me and my crazy kitchen and recipes. However, it’s just not always the case. Just like you, I do the sticker charts, rewards and applause when they test something out of their comfort zone. (Often times a battle, I can assure you!) Now, my seven year old has become a bit more adventurous, and I have to tell you that much of that is owed to The Food Network and it’s weekend line-up of shows!! One of which stars, Ree Drummond….the Pioneer Woman…any fans?? Well, if you have never seen her fantastic show, you must! It’s centered around Ree, this adorable country woman transported from the city. She creates delicious recipes in her lodge for her lovely family and all to enjoy. Last Saturday, the show focused on particular dishes that were favorites of each of of her four children. The one that caught mine, (and my daughter’s eyes) was the Salisbury Steak which was her older sons favorite! It just had such a classic, comfy vibe that we were completely drawn to. The best part? Those magical words that came out next, ”Mom, can we make that?” Talk about music to my ears! Before any seconds thoughts occurred, we made it the very next night AND……a TOTAL hit!! I owe you REE!!!
