My boys will eat tons of hot dog too, why does it have to be the less healthy stuff?  ::)  But I have found a preservative free kind which I am really excited about, so I don't feel so bad about letting them have it.  The same brand has also come out with preservative free deli meats too, yay!

They are Maple Leaf I think, called Natural Select or something like that.  Never heard of Applegate Farms!

are you talking about natural selections? I have seen them at the deli counter recently. ok, I will check it out next time. I hope my grocery store has it. I hate all the salt and other random things they put in hotdogs.

Yep, Natural Selections.  It does list sea salt in the ingredients but no preservatives.  We buy it at Loblaws.  :)

Mmmmmmm cheesecake.....

My boy won't eat any cake! DD didn't until she was older either and still prefers ice cream or cookies to cake.

Cashews were eaten today!

ROFL.  DH is therefore 'broken,' too.  He thinks it tastes like vomit.  Ewwww.  I don't think Aaron's ever tried it, but thankfully, if he does have sweets (like some ice cream or a cookie/piece of cake), he only takes a few bites and then is done.

We're still in a funk here, just because of the move.  We've eaten out pretty much every night this week, so Aaron has been having lots of grilled cheese or pasta or chicken nuggets ::)  I can't wait to cook my own food again...which I'm doing with a vengence this weekend.  Who knows if the kiddo will eat it.

Lots of *hugs* Sarah...shots are cruel :(

Oh no Sarah! Vaccines always set us back here and always did with DD's eating too.

Sara - does he eat your own food when you cook lately (before the move)? Hope you settle in soon!

Also at Safeway.  I buy it all the time as it is the only sandwich meat that you can actually say the ingredients on the list ::)  Quite the selection too.

I think Applegate Farms must be like a US alternative? Not sure but sounds like the same deal. No antibiotics, no hormones, no nitrates/preservatives and can totally read the list of ingredients!

He'll eat about 90% of what I make for dinner (bc I make what he will eat), but we were trying out some new recipes this weekend...so always some uncertainty there.  He didn't eat either meal, btw ::)  THe first was a french toast casserole...was super yummy but I think he got upset when he burned his tongue on it (DH accidentally forgot to check that it was all the way cooled first) and only ate 2 bites.  Then we had a new pasta dish last night, which I thought he'd love since the sauce was a creamy/cheesy enchilada sauce.  But nope!  Sundays are hard bc he gets so little sleep; I think he was just too hungry and tired by the time dinner rolled around to want to try something new.  He had a piece of cheese, a kashi fruit bar, and some oranges.
