Getting my kids to eat sometimes is like pulling teeth – something we’re becoming quite familiar with lately as well. One kid might like it, but then everyone else won’t touch it. I even try hard to have a little something for everyone on the plates. Dinner time has not been a fun occurrence in our house as we beg, bribe, and demand that our kids eat something relatively healthy.
One thing I know they will all eat though is Pasta. Lots and lots of pasta. Have you ever read the book More Spaghetti, I Say! ? Those are my kids, except they never get sick of it…never… My pasta was boring though…toss it in a pot, add some sauce, done. Same thing every time we eat pasta – only now I’m the one who’d rather have something different, while the kids and Mark are happy.
Then I found The Pasta Shoppe. So many goodies, I actually got excited about having pasta again because they gave me the recipe with the pasta, and most come with a seasoning mix as well. Pasta has once again become something everyone will eat, and even I enjoy.
When our box of goodies arrived, Mark had been pretty sick with a chest cold and what beats a cold better than Chicken Noodle Soup? Luckily for us there was a box of Chicken Noodle Soup mix just waiting for us.
Mark gave this soup a thumbs up, and even had a second bowl. I loved it as well, while the kids were so so…but mostly because, GASP, I added peas to the soup. The little chicken pastas were too adorable, I just had to line them up on the side of my bowl.
I don’t know how it keeps coming up, since I’m not really a football fan, but here I go talking about the BYU and UofU rivalry again. They had their big game a couple weeks ago (same day I got the pasta actually), and so I of course shared this picture on Instagram (I’d love for your to follow me there @adelinapriddis!) and Facebook…
I thought for a minute I should host a last minute football game for all my friends and family. Instead I decided to hold onto the pastas for another occasion – our church’s Relief Society Broadcast Dinner. I had signed up to bring a salad, and thought a little mix would be fun.
The Collegiate pasta’s come with 3 recipes, and a vinaigrette dressing mix. It was light, and so good. We had quite the turn out to our dinner, so the only comment I overheard, was from an older lady who loved the bright colors of the blue and red pasta. The bowl was cleaned out when I left.
We still have a couple more packages to try including ABC, Music, and Halloween shapes. I can’t wait to use the ABC pasta with Princess R during our school time.
