I am sure you have heard of the terrible twos.
Well, I am pretty confident my son has taken over as the campaign manager.
Last Sunday, as I ridiculously thought I could take a shower, he threw his applesauce.
And then I went to get dressed. (How dare I, right?!)
And he pooped on the floor—as in the new carpet. Like a puppy.
That was it. I turned into a stark raving lunatic.
And I officially decided that he is the poster child for the terrible twos.
But my gosh is he an angel when he is sleeping.
He has the most gorgeous long eyelashes.
And a killer smile.
He talks in the funniest voices, making me always smile.
He is the best little cuddler.
And my little love.
So, I couldn’t stay mad at him for long!
I made this salad five times last week, that is how much I love it. It’s more of a rough sketch than a true recipe, but the flavor combination is fantastic.
Here’s What You Need: (Makes 1 large or 2 small salads)
1 cup of baby spinach, cut into strips*
1-2 TBS of feta, diced (not the crumbled kind)
½ of tomato, chopped
Good quality kalamata olives (about 10)
1/2 capful of extra virgin olive oil
1 capful of balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper
Here’s What You Do:
Plate the spinach and top with feta, tomatoes, and olives. Drizzle with balsamic and evoo. Season with sea salt and pepper. Don’t you feel lighter already?!
*I roll it up and cut it with kitchen scissors.
I cannot tell a lie. My kids are not going to eat spinach salad. But, sometimes I need a mommy dish 😉 What tips would you have to get your kids to eat this?
