As a segway between the growing food topic of the past few weeks and the upcoming pumpkin carving, pie making of this week, we have spent some time talking about food. We've read books such as the B-Bears "Go out to Eat" and "Forget Their Manners."
I really had a tough time letting go of the instinct to cover every inch of the paper with pictures. He kept saying "But I like that white spot..." If I'm not careful I could be one of those parents who takes over making the kid's science project for school some day!!!
It is much easier to feed a baby pasta with chopsticks than with a fork!
I asked for chopsticks, out of habit, while on vacation in the US/Canada. It wasn't until I saw the waiter's questioning look that I remembered most people don't eat spaghetti with chopsticks...
Turkey Noodle Salad
(not sure what to call it... "Clean Out the Fridge" doesn't sound yummy)
1 small zucchini
1 cup of baked turkey cut into 1 cm cubes
2-3 cups of cooked pasta
A handful of cheese which melts easily
Cesar Salad dressing
In a big bowl:
Use peeler to peel carrot and zucchini strips about 3 inches long
Put in turkey and cheese
Boil noodles, drain
Dump hot noodles on top of other things in the bowl and mix
Add in the dressing to taste - since I was making this for the kids I used just a bit and then the adults added more at the table to their own serving
I was very surprised to see how quickly the kids ate this up! Miss Mega love it. Even the leftovers are good after being in the fridge for a day.
