In an effort to keep my kids well-balanced when it comes to food, I’m taking a page from Naomi’s kitchen playbook and made them this colorful, Grilled Salmon Bowl, which we’ve nicknamed the Unicorn Salad.
All kidding aside, yes—the kids grimaced a little. Yes, they picked through it. And, yes, it was so annoying. I get it—kids don’t gravitate to sprouts.
But I also have super human powers of persuasion, so they forked their way through and at the end of it, they said, “It wasn’t that bad.” Humbling. I’m use to wearing the winning hat in my home for best cook. This definitely gave me a bit of a demotion.
I haughtily told them, “Not everything can be pizza’d, nacho’d, or fried.” So while I didn’t win any dinner points with this one, I did get the last word in. That counts for everything when your kids give you a “meh” for dinner.
