What I'm Eating? Toddler Food Friday

My toddler is a serious eater.
He'll eat just about anything that lands in front of him or whatever he sees you eating.
He can smell food a mile away.

And his taste for food is always changing.

So I thought it would be fun to start a new feature each Friday called, "What I'm eating?"

I know as moms it's always fun to see what other moms feed their kids. And get a few new recipes to add to your mommy recipe arsenal.

Right now Lucas devours this stuff.
We call it pasta balls in our house.
The boys love it.
And I could probably eat the whole box by myself if left alone.

It's Israeli Couscous.
And it's fast, simple and so easy to make.

Here is how we make it:

Saute 1 shallot and 1 garlic clove in 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil.
Empty your box of Israeli Couscous into the pan and saute until the couscous turns a light brown color.

Fill pan with 1 and 3/4 of liquid (you can use water, chicken stock, vegetable stock...whatever you have on hand. I always use stock. It adds so much flavor).
Season to taste.

Bring to a boil.
Cover & cook on low until most of the liquid is absorbed and couscous is soft.

Once it's done you can add pretty much anything to it.
It is so versatile.
I usually add whatever veggie I have on hand (broccoli, carrots, zucchini...)

And the boys love it topped with sprinkle cheese (Parmesan cheese).

so good.
