what to serve--
I found this at Krogers and i love it. It's like a healthy substitution for canned pasta. it's also great b/c it is gluten free, milk free and soy free (for my friends out there who need good options for kids with allergies). Price especially loves it.
i usually serve it on nights when bruce and i are going out on a date or i need a quick dinner for price before the rest of us eat.
how to clean up--
this little hand held device saves me from getting frustrated after 1 preschooler and 1 toddler eat at their little table.
Now as soon as they are finished eating i just grab this little gizmo, that i received as a wedding present 10 years ago, and WHALLA! the mess is gone. it's like mommy magic!
where to eat saturday morning breakfast (with or without kids)--
2) Garden Cafe
one of our family traditions is to go out to saturday morning breakfast. Well with the weather getting nicer we decided to branch out from our usual rotation (cafe brazil, dream cafe, etc) to go to the Garden Cafe.
This is definitely going to the top of our list for the following reasons:
a) you order at the counter, so less waiting...always a good thing with kids
b) while you wait for your food you can grab a table out back in the real garden and your kids can play in the enclosed playground back there.
c) delicious food! i'm not usually an omelet fan...this was the best omelet i've had
d) when you get there early you have the place practically to yourself, so while enjoying your fabulous food you can soak in a very peaceful environment (garden setting with birds chirping and a gentle fountain bubbling).
e) a roll of papertowels at every table! thank you!!
