My kids think I’m hard of hearing. But really, their unhealthy requests get auto-translated by my brain into healthier fare. When they ask for Ice Cream, naturally, I assume they mean a bowl full of “Rice Dream” (ha ha). Do they protest? Yeah. Do I care? Not so much. They know we don’t have any ice cream, nor will I head out to the store to satisfy their cravings. Most of the time, they just like to ask for things they know I don’t buy.
But what I do buy is rice. And we’ve been incorporating fruit into our rice lately for a refreshing summer treat! This is white rice, but we’ve also tried it with some brown rice with crushed pineapple and coconut a few days ago that turned out divine. Yesterday, we added cherry sauce! Wow! My daughter almost ate the entire *Rice Dream Banana Split Sundae * herself!
