Playing Hard and Eating Well!

Spring is upon us!  My "to do" list gets longer, and I'm lagging behind on my blog writing due to the demands of being a stay-at-home mom.   As I take a few more days to write, I wanted to share with you some quick snapshots that I've captured in our house lately, and also tell you about a healthy recipe contest in conjunction with National Nutrition Month.

I'm so blessed to have two healthy children who play hard and eat well.




Apparently, I was told this was a sleeping car on a train in my closet.   All of daddy's shoes were in the way! My neat husband is not a huge fan of his shoes being dumped all over the floor, but sometimes you've got to let them be creative, and give yourself a moment to put on some mascara.





My son had some creative name for this little get-up that I certainly can't remember now.   I got called away from writing, and was told, "to take a picture, and put it on my blog."  Guess he doesn't mind being in the spotlight!






Wait, it seems like she was just born!  How is she old enough to play Candy Land?





And sometimes, we sneak chocolate into our days when we are cooking together.    It's not the healthiest eating, but it sure is yummy in moderation.  Later this week, I'm going to share a sweet sixteen cupcake recipe, but today, I have a treat to share with you from Destination Hotels and Resorts .

The luxury hotel brand launched a  "Kids Healthy Recipe" contest this month in conjunction with National Nutrition Month.  They want to hear about your favorite healthy recipe that your kids love and eat.

The grand prize winner will receive a trip for four including airfare to a full-service Destination Hotels & Resorts property and see their recipe featured on the company's Kid's Café Menu for a year.

Additionally, the winner will receive dinner for four featuring your winning recipe prepared by the chef.  Two runners-up will have their recipes featured on the company's Kid's Café webpage as well as a visit from one of Destination's executive chefs to the winner's school for a class room cooking lesson.  All three winners will receive a Destination Hotels & Resorts kids chef coat.

So put on your chef's hats and let Destination Resorts know what's cooking in your kitchen.   You may enter and vote for the recipes already entered at this
link.   Even if you don't enter, you may be inspired to make some of dishes already submitted.   You can submit recipes up to March 31, and vote on your favorites through April 7th.

Until next time, I'm grabbing a cup of tea and plan some kid-friendly meals courtesy of parents like you.
