what i learned from jon & kate plus 8
Wayyyyyy back in the day I used to watch this show and love it. The kids were so cute and I loved seeing how Kate managed the house with military precision. Plus everything she bought was organic, which I thought was really cool. Anyway, the reason B. now eats hummus at least twice a week is because I'd seen Kate serve 8 plates of hummus, pita and veggie sticks for lunch and it seemed like such a tasty/healthy meal that didn't involve cheese. (I mean how many times can you do pizza, mac n cheese, grilled cheese, quesedilla, etc.) I don't know what it is about hummus--give me tzaziki or white bean dip any day--but even borderline picky kids like B. eat it. Works for me. And every time he eats it, it cracks me up that such a train wreck of a show had such a positive impact on our mealtime.
