My goofy trick to get kids to eat!

There is not pitter patter in this house it’s more like “Boom, Crash, Slam!” 

Then the next thing I know it’s, “Do-do-do-doo-do-d-d-d-dooo,” the talented Thing 2 playing the kazoo version of “March of the Empire”!

I love it though, the kids are so creative!

Last night’s dinner was a hit and not because of my extreme talent.  Thing 1 polished off his stir-fry saying “I loved it, I loved it ALL!” 

Would you believe me if I told you the stir-fry contained mushrooms, green peppers and bean sprouts?  Here is my secret.

Thing 1 sliced mushrooms using this wire egg slicer, Thing 2 stirred and The Bubba  who never needs coaxing when it comes to eating especially if his brothers are there, supervised!

It was a hit mostly because I let the Thinglets help and they couldn’t resist trying what they had “made”!

Stir-Fry Kid Style Un-Recipe: GF

What you’ll need- meat, cooked rice, various veggies, liquid and seasoning (We used olive oil, Tamari Wheat Free Soy Sauce, garlic and sugar water).  We in this case means my hubby, as I was the slice and dice supervisor!

  • partially thaw frozen chicken (we were in a hurry) and slice into thin strips while heating an electric skillet (or frying pan) with a little olive oil
  • cook chicken in olive oil over med heat until no longer frozen then add garlic and a little more oil and increase heat to 400 degreesIMG_3420
  • add vegetables that need extra time like bell pepper and onion (if you must-ha ha)
  • continue to fry and stir so nothing burns
  • add Tamari soy sauce, sugar water (and no, I’m not a Bug)
  • add the remaining veggies and cooked rice (yesterday’s left overs).  For a little zip add a small amount of crushed red pepper or red pepper oil after you dish some for the kids :)
  • Stir fry until heated through and the vegetables are cooked how you like them.  I like mine pretty limp, Not recommended at culinary schools across the nation, if it were I’d probably be on TV and not writing a blog about how to cook Goof style!

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
