Bowls, Bowls Everywhere

Published on: 10-11-2017

Why is it that food always looks more appetizing when it’s displayed in little bowls? Even food that you wouldn’t normally eat. You should try it sometime with your kids. How many times have they come home from school and automatically run to the fridge to grab the carrots in the bag? Yeah, like never. But let’s just say you had those little carrots out in a bowl with a dollop (love that word) of Ranch (love Ranch) in another little bowl? Bet they grab one. Or two. In fact, you can make a whole smorgasbord of bowls with healthy stuff in ’em and see who bites. Of course that means that someone has to eventually clean those little bowls but let’s worry about that later. For now the goal is getting stuff from your fridge into the mouths of those who normally avoid it and then complain that there is no food in the house. Here are some other suggestions for stuff that looks bad in bags but great in bowls:

 

  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Almonds
  • Edamame
  • Clementine Slices (if your kids are as lazy as mine and won’t peel them themselves)
  • Whole Wheat Crackers
  • Grapes
  • Safety Pins (just making sure you’re still paying attention)
  • Banana Slices

Writing about bowls makes me think of one of my favorite stores, Fishs Eddy in New York City. It’s jam- packed with mix and match diner dishes all displayed, well, in little bowls. There’s old Steak ‘n Shake plates mixed with IHOP mugs. Mini salt and pepper shakers and towels and little forks that I don’t know what they’re for and just tons of junk that nobody really needs but that’s really fun to sort through because it looks so good displayed in…you guessed it, BOWLS! So next time you’re in NYC check it out. No, I didn’t get paid to write this. I just like this place.

Tonight will be Taco Night for no other reason than we’ll be taking out little bowls and putting everything that I want my kids to eat from my fridge into them. Here’s all you need:

Taco Night

  • Ground Chicken, Beef or Turkey
  • Package of low sodium taco seasoning
  • Package of shredded lettuce
  • Package of shredded cheese
  • Package of shredded carrots (yeah, stuff those in there too and they’ll get their vitamin A carotine for the week)
  • One tomato
  • Package of yellow rice
  • Can of black beans
  • Adobo seasoning
  • Taco shells or soft tortillas

Directions:

  1. Saute ground meat in a little olive oil until no longer pink.
  2. Drain.
  3. Add a splash of water and taco seasoning and heat until covered.
  4. Put everything else in little bowls.
  5. Make rice.
  6. Heat beans with a dash of Adobo seasoning.
  7. Put soft tortillas on paper plate and cover with damp paper towel.
  8. Microwave for a minute and presto! Hot soft tortillas!
  9. Put taco shells in oven for 10 minutes on 250.
  10. Enjoy your dinner with bowls and beg/bribe/threaten someone else to clean them up.
