It was one of "those" days. Well, now that I think about it, it was like every other day. I was tired, the kids were hungry, I hadn't been grocery shopping recently, and there was nothing in the pantry or fridge that could be fashioned into something worth eating. I really wanted to just grab something fast and easy, and head home.
So what did the kids do? They cried! They begged and pleaded with me to NOT make them eat that food. At first I was annoyed. I mean, that is unheard of. Kids that don't want chicken nuggets, fries and a cheap plastic toy that never even makes it out of the backseat? Preposterous! So, frustrated, I asked what they would eat. They begged for sushi. Sushi is the treat they get for being good during a trip to the grocery store. Then it hit me. I realized that all of my efforts to raise healthy eaters had paid off. So we hit the Hy-Vee next door that has excellent ready made sushi rolls in the deli case.
