Gourmet Babies

Cheese in Ireland is a strange thing. There are soooooo many really great yummy yummy cheeses. Cashel Blue to name our personal favourite is now available all over the world! There are a million different cheddars, a few great smoked and unsmoked goudas, unbelievable goats cheese (including some exceptional dry aged). But when a girl goes to town looking for a bag of shredded mozzarella (yes, the yucky kind) there is not a scrap to be found!

You can, however find the most beautiful balls of fresh baby mozzarella at most grocery stores and even, wait for it - fresh cheese curd!

So, when Pizza night rolls around every so often here at Chez Wise - the children sing the same tune every time - More Cheese Please!!

Now, as you know, our little restaurant babies have unusual, if not great taste buds!

Ron had to pop out last night for a little while and I was left to 'fixin dinner' for the 2 crumb catchers. In saying I was left to do this arduous chore, let me clarify a few things. The chef had made some pizza dough for the kids to make their own pizzas. I had to open the jar of tomato sauce and get the cheese out of the fridge. (I know, I am a lucky girl!)

They proceeded to sauce and cheese their pizza and when asked how they wanted to top it off (sausage, mushroom, etc) they asked for thinly sliced apple??

I sliced it, they arranged it. I popped the pizza in the over for all of 8 minutes if that and they ate the entire pie before it had a chance to cool down.

Its a winner for any Mum out there trying to get their children to eat more fruit!

That is all the WiseWords I have for today,
