After the girls had played enough with the dyed pasta, we made Sunrise Lemonade (from Salad People.)
It was a pretty simple recipe (I had to make “simple syrup” – just a mix of equal parts sugar and water – before we started) and the manual juicer I bought worked really well (though the kids needed some help for that step!)
The verdict? Lots of thumbs up, and requests to make it again very soon!
Then for dinner tonight (we were on a roll) we made Sweet Potato Surprise (also from Salad People) and Lollipop Chicken. (That recipe was from a Parenting magazine at the dentist’s office this afternoon. I shamelessly begged them to make a copy for me.) The surprising bit was that my children ate dinner. It’s amazing how calling something “lollipop chicken” and serving it on a stick makes it so much more appealing!
