Kelli's Dinner

So as I mentioned, today is my sister Kelli's birthday. I won't mention her age, because she's sort of in denial about it these days! :) But it's been a fun year for Kelli and I. She delivered her first baby in April, and it was so fun when we were both pregnant with our boys at the same time!! They'll be about 3 months apart, and will be the best of friends/cousins! :)

Anyways, today was her birthday, so in honor of her, we had a "Kelli dinner". Something I've never made or bought before, but it was a big hit! We had tilapia and couscous (and green beans, but that's not new obviously). I had couscous for the first time at their house, and they live in south Florida and eat all KINDS of fresh seafood that I haven't tried. Both items were on sale this week at the store, so i figured it was a good time to try it.

And they were a hit! Well, with most of us. Jacob vetoed dinner completely (not a shock). Josiah tried his bites of the tilapia, but said it wasn't his favorite (he loves tuna and shrimp though, so we'll keep trying). He was a fan of the couscous. Callie LOVED the tilapia (ate her portion and Jacob's), but didn't touch the couscous (again, not a shock. she doesn't typically care for the "grains/carbs" in a meal - but will inhale the meat and veggies. David and I loved it all. Tasted so good! Part of why it was so good for me I think was because David did it all! He grilled the fish and had the couscous almost ready by the time the kids & I got home from Sam's and Bed Bath & Beyond!!! LOVE it!!!

Glad to hear even your kids will turn down food -- I'm sure they're no where near as picky as my kids, but I don't cook for mine like you do for yours either. I know I shouldn't take 'joy' in your kids being the slightest bit picky, but it makes me feel better just the same!

WOW!! that's fancy schmancy right there! :) this makes me feel a little bad about the items i have failed to expose my children too. i just don't know how successful i'm gonna be here but i should try harder. :)
