Every Nearly every night when making dinner, the first thing I do is chop up some carrots and cucumbers. When the inevitable, I'm hungry! What are you making? appearances occur.....the kids are "sneaky" and steal some of the vegetables already out on the table for dinner. It keeps them from snacking on junk while I'm cooking (and shhhh, it sneaks in a serving of veggies). *Note: has been known to work on husbands too.
