I am excited to share with you the exciting news that I may be on my way to the White House this summer with one of my kids! I had read about The Healthy Lunchtime Challenge and Kids’ “State Dinner” contest on Epicurious.com (part of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Initiative), and I was able to enter a lunch recipe for each of my children (Elena and Alexander).
Please read more about the contest and judging process here:
The exciting news is that BOTH of the recipes we entered were selected as “finalists”. The way the contest works (there are three finalistst per state and we are two of them from Idaho), we now have a 67% chance of winning! …
…And goin’ to the White House, baby!
If you would like to see the recipes we submitted, please check them out.
Alexander’s recipe was a cross between these two recipes I posted prevously:
Enchilada Bake: http://www.healthykidsideas.com/slow-cooker-enchiladas-2/
Enchie Pie: http://www.healthykidsideas.com/enchie-pie-slow-cooker/
Elena’s recipe was a classic for her and our family, Fiesta Casserole: http://www.healthykidsideas.com/fiesta-casserole/
We will definitely keep everyone posted as we learn the final outcome. Keep your fingers crossed for Alexander and Elena!
