Caleb's Popcorn Chicken Salad

Caleb recently watched an episode of Wow, Wow, Wubbzy! where Wubbzy was using a cookbook to cook. Well, Caleb decided he wanted to use a cookbook to cook something. So, I pulled out my Pampered Chef Let's Eat Cookbook (a kid's cookbook), and he got to choose one recipe. We told him that whatever he chose, he had to fix and eat. We were surprised when he chose a Popcorn Chicken Salad. Now, he loves chicken, but we've never really known him to eat much salad. So, it was going to be a test and an experiment. LOL!

Well, we picked up the necessary ingredients, and he made his salad today. He diced the celery and carrots. Brian cooked the popcorn chicken (store bought of course), and we had a bag of pre-mixed salad. So, Caleb added the celery and carrot to the salad, added the chicken, and dressed it with Ranch dressing. Besides, everything tastes better with Ranch, right? LOL!

Surprise, surprise...he ate it, and he thought it was yummy! He said he'd eat it again. So, Omi, you better leave that boy a comment letting him know how proud you are that he ate a salad. :)

Digging in to get another bite...yummy!

And -- as for Micah, well, he is now eating up some table food. Today I gave him a piece of the popcorn chicken (of course I cut it into smaller pieces...I'm not that crazy), and he gobbled it up. We're also trying to get him to drink out of a sippy cup. He's doing a good job, but he'd much rather just bang it on the highchair and make a mess. LOL! But -- what baby wouldn't want to do that?

Micah gobbling up some popcorn chicken...yummy! Micah using the sippy cup...he's trying.
