A few days ago I made a large pot of bean and veggie soup with sausage. I knew it would be a challenge to get my kids, especially Nate (5) and Abi (4) to eat it because they don't like vegetables. After several attempts with no success, I decided to reinvent.
I removed the sausage (there were only a few pieces left) and pureed everything and made dip! We can't buy chips here so I made whole wheat flour tortillas from scratch then cut them in wedges and fried them (not very healthy but I didn't have time to let them bake).
We grown-ups ate our dip in a bowl, topped with lettuce, tomato, jalpenos, and sour cream. The kids ate theirs plain but little did they know they were eating carrots, zucchini, potatoes, bell peppers and onions!
Yay! This is my first "Frugal Friday" post! Head over to Biblical Womanhood for more great ideas on saving $.
