Rainy Sunday!

My son Aria jumped off the diving board on Friday. He loves swimming and his swimming class. 2nd season will start tomorrow. He'll be in level 3!
We promised him we would take him to his favorite pool today. Woke up this morning and was asking;
- 'no sun? Mommy is it realy rainy today? I don't beleive it! :(
But I know how to lighten him up. Banana Pancakes!!!

We changed the plan and decided to take him to see the movie,' G Force' which he kept on asking about it.
So went to see this movie today. We actually enjoyed it as much as he did. Highly trained guinea pigs, (the female one is my favorite and also love Penelope Cruz) armed latest high-tech spy equipments which was really fun to watch with 3D glasses. The worse thing was, it was shining outside when we were coming back home ;(

Here is the recipe that made him lighten up this morning;
Banana Pancake
3 jumbo eggs
2 cups of flour.
1 cup of milk.
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup of pureed banana.
1 teaspoon of vanilla.
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of cinnamon,
3 tbsp vegetable oil.
Beat the eggs then add milk and oil.
Add the sugar, the flour,the banana puree, vanilla, cinnamon, the baking powder then mix thoroughly.
Cook both side until brown on a heated skillet.
Aria loves with extra banana(sliced) and chocolate syrup : )
Something is wrong with my camera. I used the webcam. Sorry, this is not a good shot.
Thanks for stopping by!

What makes food fun to eat? Any suggestion?

Today I'm searching how to make food, especially veggies fun to eat. Your ideas will help other moms too.

-Finger foods – kids love eating with their fingers
-Dipping and scooping – it is fun for them to dip or scoop their food into another food.
-Kids enjoy taking matters into their own hands by adding things to their food such as sauces or toppings.
-Fillings and icings tend to make foods appealing to kids
-Silly shapes and colors – kids like foods that come in interesting shapes and colours
-Portability – kids like to be able to take food products with them

My son is 7 years old and he says he doesn't like silly faces anymore ;) He likes some veggies. Raw carrot, bell pepper, cucumber and lettuce are his favorites. Tomatoes! He eats if they are raw. Also eats peas and green beans when I served with pasta or rice. He used to eat broccoli but not anymore!
-Finely chopped veggetables can be added to ground beef, egg, hamburger..
-Another recomendation is to have the child to help pick out vegetables at the grocery store and help prepare them.
What is your suggestion?

Russian Potato Salad

Sunday is a funday!
We will stay at home and BBQ today. Also I made this yummy salad.
Very easy!
16 oz. peas(canned)
1 cup carrot(canned)
4 potatoes (cubed and cooked)
6 tbsp light mayonaise

I'm trying to reduce the amount of sodium so rinsed peas and carrot very well.
Gently toss all the ingredients together in a bowl. You can also add hard boiled egg, pickles pepper(optinal)
Actually, I don't usually add egg but pickles goes great!
I ate this salad a lot yesterday. Good thing is mayonaise was light ;))

How incredible they are!

I love mushrooms and knew they were healthy but until I decided to do some search, I didn't realize how much imported they were to our health.
Also I learned that mushrooms were one of the first herbal medicines used to inhibit many condition like tumor.
Mushrooms are great sauce of mineral content.
They can have a positive effect on gall bladders.
In fact, they are an excellent source of iron, selenium, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper, and zinc.
Also may help to prevent breast cancer. They are high in antioxidants.
Niacin-rich foods like mushrooms increase risk of hearth disease, stroke and osteoartritis.

Healthy, tasty, yummy!
This is my favorite lunch! With a slice of whole wheat bread.

16 oz white mushroom
2 scallions (chopped)
1 handfull parsley(finely chopped)
1/2 tsp red pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp vinegar
olive oil, sea salt

Put mushrooms in a pan. Add olive oil. Cook until softer.
Add spicey, vinegar, sea salt
Then cook a few more minutes.

It was a great weekend and today I feel a little lazy ;)
My next post will be about Perky Blogger Award.
Have a great evening!
