Thursday and Friday post!

Hi!
So the past couple days have been fun! Yesterday I made a macaroni and cheese with a whole head of cauliflower in it without the kids even knowing! Then today I made a chocolate pudding from avocado, banana and cocoa powder. That pudding tasted like heaven! The banana were nice and ripe so they lent the perfect sweetness. I wish I remembered to snap a picture of the pudding because from looking at it you would have never known it was healthy for you! The salad bar has also been very rainbow like which is the goal!
The garden is exploding right now with peppers, eggplant, and a few summer squash popped out today! I love starting my morning with a stroll through the garden.

This is a sunflower waiting for fresh sunflower seeds to be picked from it. They were really yummy!

These were the options for Thursday!
Those fun purple looking things are roasted purple potatoes that the kids loved. They were seasoned with rosemary, thyme and a sprinkle of salt. The kids raved about them, with a few kids getting a second helping of them!

Then these were the options today. A few fun things were fruit soup( made with super sweet strawberries and grapes all whirled up in the blender), garden peppers, and sautéed onions from a local farm that were just gorgeous.
