Fun Food

Do you ever get tired of the same old food?
I know my daughter does!
Even though it's a rule at our house that we have to eat our veggies, they actually have to be eaten first because if they aren't then it never fails that there just isn't enough room for them. The belly of a 5 year old can magically become full if every thing else is eaten and veggies are left :)
Anyway, I have noticed that if I make foods fun then it not only helps bring out the kid in me but she is excited too!
So here is a picture of how we make organic sausage and macaroni fun. Add a few cherry tomatoes and fresh green beans and you've got a fun, tasty lunch :)
Any ideas or ways to make your foods fun? Feel free to share!!

Seriously Out of Touch!

So sorry there hasn't been any activity on this blog in a while. I had a baby in July and forgot just how much time is spent with a newborn :)
Then just when I thought I had enough time (and energy,lol) my computer decides to quit working :(
Well, I think all of that has been fixed so hopefully I can start posting on a somewhat regular basis!

Our Poor, Neglected Blog :(

(Our sleeping beauty- Jillian)

I've never been really great about consistent blogging but tried to write something on a regular basis. Well now that our newest addition Jillian is here, the blog ( and numerous other things) are sooooo neglected! Guess that's what happens when you have a new baby, lol!
Sorry about that, I hope to have some posts very soon.

Local Food

It seems like you hear more and more about buying products locally.
I think if at all possible that is a fantastic idea! I happened to have the tv on tonight and a commercial caught my attention. Most of the time I could do without commercials but this one was talking about buying local products and how it effects the local economy which as we all know, Michigan and it's citizens can use all of the help it/we can get!
I don't know much about the Michigan Land Use Institute but I did think that a website linking people to local food and other products was a great idea!
Here is what specifically caught my attention,
(from their commercial and website)

If we all spend just $10 a week
on local farm foods,our regional economy
will grow by nearly $5 million a year!

$10 a week makes a difference of $5 million dollars a year for local economy!
Definitely seems worth trying to do!!

Here is another resource if you are interested in buying and eating local
You can search for CSA's , farmer's markets, restaurants and more!

Be sure to check out both sites when you have a little extra time, there seems to be a lot of info :)
