I have been all over it in the past few days. Let me tell ya' all about it.
A while back I was writing about the book Deceptively Delicious by Mrs. Jerry Seinfeld. While I technically haven't tried any of the recipes from it, I have employed the techniques. Last week I snuck spinach and carrots in to spaghetti sauce. Matt was on to me, as well he should have been. Spinach does weird things to the color of spaghetti sauce. This week I was much more deceptive. I put carrots in to the spaghetti sauce again and, my personal favorite, I mashed sweet potatoes in to the refried beans. Both of my daughters, who lately have been spitting out steamed cubes of sweet potato, gobbled up the beans without incident. Score one for the mama.
Eloise and I are still off dairy, which has helped out over Halloween. I can't steal Iris's candy if I can't eat it, anyways. Whew. Not only that, but I've been doing a bit of yoga every day, as well. I'm trying to focus on whittling my flabby post-baby tummy down to something a tad bit skinnier for the wedding. We'll see.
