Veggies anyone?

Dinner Friday Night

First a smoothie made with Dandelion Greens, plain yogurt, an orange, banana and lots of frozen blueberries.

Next, chicken tenders made with Butternut Squash puree coating

Cooking in Safflower Oil

The Finished Product

These nuggets are so good.  If you're gonna fry chicken, this is the way to do it. :)  The squash makes the batter sweet and light and gives it that pretty golden color.

My kids loved this meal, even the dandelion green smoothie.  I loved this meal because it tasted great and the kids ate their vegetables tonight without any fuss.  And yes, they knew what they were eating.

Hmmm... I've been trying to find some ways to add more veggies in our family's diet. I might have to try the chicken one. Did it really taste good? Could you give me the exact recipe, if there is one?

Linda, wow! That's my kind of eating. You are a cool mom! Your kids will thank you one day.


PS -- Love your header -- the three beautiful girls.

Sounds like a delicious meal! We eat dandy greens in salad all summer. :-)
