Well, I did it! I snuck some walnut butter down the kid (the older six year old kid.) He really is afraid of trying new things. I called it healthy peanut butter and then told him the truth after the fact. If I had called it walnut butter from the beginning, he would not have eaten it at all.
Still, I don't think he was pleased that he had been tricked. I think I will not use that technique again. I don't want to lose his trust! Desperate Moms to be continued.......
I just bought some "spring rolls" or rice paper. They are round, 100 % rice, and make nice sandwich wraps. I don't mind that they are a little bit sticky to the touch while moist, but my two year old does. Immediately after this blog I will be researching cooking techniques. I hear you can simply wet them and mold them to the shape that you need, or you can pan fry them to a nice crunchy texture.
I may look around for a chinese cooking class for beginners (or Asian cooking class). I think it would be worth the money to please my little one's taste buds!
