I don’t know about you, but I find it really easy to feed my children well. However, when it comes to me, I am getting stinking lousy at it! With the change in season, and the rush of school activities and holidays ahead, it would make perfect sense to eat well for my own health. But here I am, a little under the weather and I should have practiced what I always preach.
Pesto is a great sauce for pasta and it’s a great change from tomato sauce. In order to make our pesto healthier, I make it with baby spinach leaves instead of basil leaves. At home we call it “Popeye Pasta” and the kids go crazy for it!
It’s no secret in our home that Papa MOE is the worst eater in the bunch. Friends and family have poked fun at it for years, and I have tried with him, like a Mama tries with her children, to get him to eat better. It’s not that he eats terrible food. Whatever I’m making is what’s for dinner, so the main meal is healthy. But Papa MOE…just can’t get himself to eat vegetables.
I’m not joking.
Here we are at the start of a new year and holiday parties and get-togethers done. Kids are back at school and work is back in full force. Isn’t it wonderful to catch up with loved ones during the holidays? I had some special moments this year, and I hope you did too. It took a long time for the snow to hit the ground here in Montreal, but now it’s here! And with the bitter cold on some days, it feels like a proper Canadian winter.
