My kitchen is my "Science Lab" at home. I do different experiments on food that I cook. I am horrible with following recipes because whenever I am preparing it and I don't have the ingredient I need, I always end up using different thing and cook different menu instead of the recipe I am trying to make lol.
To entice my kids' appetite, I do creative things especially on veggies. My kids are two very different individuals. The little Miss love egg whites while the little Mister likes the yolk. So What I always do is separate the whites from the yolk and fry them inside a cut up veggies. You just need to removed the inside part of the veggies and they served as the bowl for the egg.
The first one I used are red bell peppers.
Yesterday, I used sliced up squash and added some cheese on top to make it more appealing to them and they loved it!
This morning, I picked a green tomato from my garden and used it too to fry the eggs and of course, the sprinkled cheese on top does the trick in making them want to eat it. When you have kids, coming up with different menus everyday is hard but with a little bit of creativity, it's okay.
I did not want to throw the rest of the tomatoes so I made it into a salsa. I thought it was going to be sour but it was actually not. I added some strawberry, soy sauce, hot pepper flakes, and scallions. The strawberry counter balanced the sour note of the tomatoes and it was refreshing to eat!
