Itâ€™s hard enough to get meals on the table while juggling kids, carpools, jobs and general panic, without the ghosts of Martha Stewart and Rachael Ray weighing in on EVO and garnishesâ€¦ which is why we’re so smitten by this â€ś3-Second Mealâ€ť entry from Stroller Derbyâ€™s Kitchenista: â€śFirst step, lower the bar. Your kids won’t remember home-cooked meals as much as they’ll remember fondly the time you spent sitting next to them on the couch watching their favorite show. Second, spread out a huge blanket in front of the television and get everyone their own bowl. Third, fill each bowl with Raisin Bran and milk and voila! Dinner is served.â€ť
Hilarious. And healthier than fast food too.
Hey, check back with us Wednesday – well, check back every day, but most particularly Wednesday because we’re bringing you â€śThe Lunchbox: Reinventedâ€ť â€“ new ideas for putting pizzazz into the lunch bag. You pour Raisin Bran into the brown bag…
Seriously though, cookbook author Mollie Katzen sent over a batch of recipes that weâ€™ve been testing on our kids – and reaping rave reviews. So good, in fact, that we just whipped up yet another batch of homemade granola trail mix, this time to ship off to our older darlings at college. The story runs in the Timesâ€™ food section Wednesday. Weâ€™ll excerpt it here too.
