I have something to share with you.
Purple, yellow and green. The 6th week of Rainbow Dinner and new foods are still being introduced.
What is Rainbow Dinner? Every Monday I cook a meal that has three colors from the rainbow that my daughter chooses for me. The goal? Introduce new foods to my five-year old in the hope that she will start enjoying some new foods.
I knew I had to fly out early Tuesday morning for a business trip so this needed to be an easier dinner. Yellow and green were easy but I didn’t want to repeat a rainbow food. I decided on yellow squash and green zucchini and used a gadget in my kitchen to make them into “pasta”. Now to purple. I googled, I searched Pinterest, I asked the employees at Central Market. Japanese eggplant. Purple on the outside, leave the skin on and we should be good.
But what can I do with all the veggies? Buy dough and make pizza!!!!
I quickly sautéed the veggies in olive oil and garlic, stretched the dough(wasn’t so good at this) and decorated the pizza with my sauce cheese and rainbow veggies.
She loved the pizza (which I knew she would) but she ate it with the green and yellow “spaghetti” veggies. She tried the eggplant but was not a fan. My husband said everything was great but the crust. I guess I’ll keep my day job selling software rather than making pizzas!!!
