New Foods - Pumpkin Cupcakes and Lemon Pasta w/Chicken
We're lazy. This is not new information. So, Little Miss has had a pretty easy diet of things she happens to like. Nothing unhealthy necessarily, just no big variety. I noticed recently that she is downright defiant when it comes to eating or trying new foods - even different ways of serving foods she already likes. I informed her that in the next week, she was going to start to try new foods. This didn't go over well, but I told her she can pick out a food each week on her own. Depending on what it is, we can make it together. In an effort not to ruin new foods for her forever, I suggested we start with fruits, vegetables or desserts. So, she suggested pumpkin. I said we could make pumpkin cupcakes (aka pumpkin muffins).
