Deceptively Delicious

My mind has been in a thousand different places that past few days, the product of being a mom, a wife, and now a working woman. Quite obviously I displaying my disarray in my last blog post where I posted my Wordless Wednesday picture ... on a Tuesday. But despite all of the evidence to the contrary I do feel as if I'm starting to get a hold on having a real schedule now.

I'm even starting to get back into the swing of things at home again. The housework has pretty much been neglected around here as of late simply because I'd rather play with my boys than clean now that my time with them has been severely cut. But I'm lucky that I have a great husband to help pitch in when things need done around here (mostly because he doesn't want to wear stinky clothes if I don't get the laundry done).

Its mostly our meals that have fallen by the wayside. By the time I get home its late evening and I'm tired. Good healthy and nutritious meals have all but ceased to exist around here. In fact I'm pretty sure that I'm starting a pizza box collection. Now that I'm getting more and more used to my work schedule its time to tackle the challenge of eating a good meal in my house.

I went to the bookstore for a new cookbook. I was looking for something with family friendly recipes that don't take a lot of time to prepare, because I simply don't have a lot of time anymore. And wouldn't you know it that a gorgeous bright pink book caught my eye!! Outside of having the cutest cover that a cookbook has ever had, this book was just too awesome not to buy!

This book is jam packed full of scrumptious kid friendly recipes that not only sound delicious but look delicious too, and the best part of all .... they are ALL made with secretly added pureed fruits and vegetables to get extra nutrition into the bodies of your kiddos. And my kids (and husband too!) are none the wiser when mom puts a big scoop of mashed potatoes on their dinner plates that are secretly fortified with cauliflower.

This book has hands down saved dinner in our house! Check it out, and better yet, check out the authors (who just so happens to be Jerry Seinfeld's wife) website by clicking here::: Deceptively Delicious

You know, I've seen that book a million times and never once thought about thumbing through it. Maybe it's because it would mean I'd have to cook :) I think maybe I might have to look it over on our next trip to the bookstore.

I don't even know HOW you do it all. I'm not a mum yet and I can't find time in the day to even think straight.
Bravo to you for being able to get it all done, Super Woman! :)
