Follow Friday – Zucchini Fritters

8 Apr

Last night I posted a photo of the impromtu zucchini fritters I made for dinner. I got a lot of requests for the recipe, so I will be posting that soon. The best part is not that they were easy (because they were) or that Anthony and I liked them (because we did) but that Isobel devoured them. She has been in a very picky phase lately that has little to do with palatte and one hundred percent to do with power struggles. I try not to make mealtime into one, but I’m not going to just let her have a bottle whenever she wants, either.  Like so much of parenting, it’s a balance, it’s a battle, it’s a dance.

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here. Learn more about it in my FAQ.
