A few tips while the quesadillas bake. MacGyver is learning kitchen safety. Currently, I assist him when using the oven.
I keep two pairs of kitchen scissors handy for cutting. They work perfect for cutting quesadillas, pizza, spaghetti, herbs, and especially prosciutto. When my sister-in-law saw me cutting prosciutto she exclaimed, “Wow, I’ve never seen anyone cut meat with scissors before!” You should try it. It works great.
I bought these inexpensive kitchen scissors at Sam’s Club several years ago, two in a pack. What I really like is the way they come apart. I simply drop them in the dishwasher. What’s not to like about easy clean-up?
We have a strange phenomenon going on in our family. MacGyver and Miss Enigma are picky eaters. Seeing how their Mommy and Daddy LOVE food, I never dreamed we would have picky eaters for children. So while the kids like all things food plain-jane, Mommy likes things spicy! So for the grown-ups in your life, through in some chopped fajita meat or rotisserie chicken. Then pile on the toppings: jalapenos (everything is better with jalapenos), shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped avocado, chopped cilantro, plain yogurt, and salsa (yes, salsa and jalapenos). I told you Mommy likes it spicy!
Do you have picky eaters? What healthy foods have you found that your picky eaters will eat? Please share!
