This last week I made a potato broccoli soup for dinner. I found that using this "Broccoli Coleslaw" in my potato soup was a great way to add some veggies. My kids thought that they were noodles, double score.
I also think that potatoes and rosemary are a great pairing. I just planted some rosemary in the garden and can't wait to find more uses for it.
My youngest and I were cooking up a storm and washing a lot of dishes. She has a pink scrubber that makes it fun for her to help. I think encouraging my children to see doing dishes as fun is a bonus. I know I don't seem to enjoy it very much.
