I did watch her eat the rest of it and the only part she apparently DIDN'T like was the dried apricots. It was hilarious watching her feel them on her tongue, roll them around in her mouth and then watch her pull them out as she said "yech." Silly me...I thought she like dried apricots, but now that I think about it, I don't think she ever ate them plain when I gave them to her as a snack or part of lunch.
I found some dried apples in our food storage yesterday and the light bulb went on over my head. I'm going to make the oatmeal bar recipe again, and this time add a little DRIED apple and see how it works.
Also, I was watching The Rachael Ray show a couple days ago and saw a segment about Crock Pot Cooking. Rachael had this lady on that challenged herself to cook 365 homecooked meals for dinner, one every night. But, she did ALL the cooking in the CROCK POT! I was amazed. She also documented her journey on a BLOG, that is now linked on mine! I'm so excited to have access to more (kid-tested, I might add) Crock Pot recipes. Matt's excited too. Now I "don't have an excuse to not use the Crock Pot."
Time to start cooking...!
