Are you a FRY FAMILY?

My child like most enjoys food of the unhealthy variety. Since he is not like most children and at age 2 ½ we discuss things like his cholesterol and blood pressure we try to offer him heart healthy versions of the foods he does enjoy. (We try and make a normal situation out of un-normal circumstances)
So in search of these healthy alternatives Mason and I have been on a cooking quest… That is right I have been cooking up a storm with help of course from Mason.
Together we have been busy in the kitchen!
Since children really are the best critics I thought I would give you one of Mason’s favorite HEART HEALTHY FOOD ALTENATIVES!

So are you a Fry Family?
Cheese Fries
-1 spray olive oil / cooking spray
-2 large uncooked Russet or Idaho potatoes (Peeled and cut into ¼ inch strips
-1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
-1/4 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
½ cup low-fat shredded cheese (Cheddar, Colby and or a sharp variety)

-Pre-Heat Oven to 400*F.
-Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray
-Arrange potatoes on prepared baking sheet; Season to taste with salt and pepper.
-Bake 20 minutes / Flip fries and bake until golden brown (estimated another 20 minutes)
-Cluster potatoes together on baking sheet and sprinkle with cheese; bake until cheese melts (about 5 minutes)

Note: This recipe is also great with out the cheese

Loaded Diaper?!?!?

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
