One will do almost anything to get kiddos to eat. I myself have cut a hotdog into an octopus, used a ‘(fart) cloud’ cookie cuter to lore them into eating sandwiches, and many more zany tactics. Presentation matters most to kiddos, while taste comes secondary. In addition to the what and how, the WHERE also plays a significant role in their satisfaction. If a meal is served in a different place or presented in a special way, the likelihood is high you’ll have members in the Clean Plate Club. The effort and creativity that goes into arranging and staging food for my boys is so EXTRA! Wonder where they get that from?!
As the homeroom mom for my boys, I know a thing a two about a thing or two. And those things involve PARTY SNACKS! Let’s be honest, their take away is and always will be the food…and musical chairs #CrowdPleaser. These treats are my boys personal faves; #1 Oreo Sparkle Pops, #2 Easter Pretzels, and #3 Holiday Tree. These beauties came curtesy of the ‘Pinterest Moms’. Check out my Pint Size Parties board for more inspo!
So my gf’s coming over for coffee and naturally I want to WOW her! I’m grinding my own coffee beans and putting on the kettle for some fabulous French Press! #boujee
If you are wondering why I go on and on about french press coffee being the SHIZZZ, it’s because it is SPECIAL! If you’re a coffee connoisseur then you already know. I put it to my Mom (who doesn’t drink coffee…hold for gasp!) like this, it’s like comparing a knock off Louis Vuitton to the real thing. You just know! Obviously she’s a handbag girl and this scenario speaks her language.
When my friends come round I love to cook for them and send them home with treats. Today I’m baking rosemary & currant scones and serving them with an array of spreads and jams. I love them with honey, cinnamon honey butter, fig jam or Sarabeth’s Preserves.
We’ll chat about life as SAHM’s (stay at home mom) and laugh that our husbands are honorary co-chairs of NADS (National Association of Dads Society)!
