One New Food: Peas
Peas were our One New Food for February and we tried both the regular and sugar snap varieties. My goal was to have the kids try them four times. Unfortunately, we only managed three. I’m going to blame it on Eli being sick for a week and a half. I wasn’t great at making wonderful dinners while he was down for the count. Plus February is a short month. Yeah, that was the problem 😉
Anyway, it went decently well. The kids didn’t love them, but they ate their required bites without too much difficulty. What I was most impressed with was how they all happily took bites of raw sugar snap peas. None of them liked them (they’ve never been big on raw veggies), but it was awesome to see how easily and willingly they tried. And since they didn’t like them, I got to polish off the bag because those things are GOOD!
I remember taking pictures of the kids trying the sugar snap peas in the stir fry. Eric remembers me taking pictures of the kids trying the sugar snap peas in the stir fry. Sadly, the pictures are nowhere to be found. So you get the picture of the stir fry (up at the top) and this picture of the chicken pot pie I made that had regular peas in it.
I thought the kids would be really jazzed up when they saw what I did to decorate it. They weren’t.
