As I rustled up this culinary masterpiece this evening, the following conversation took place:
Evie: Mmmm…..what’s that nice smell?
Me: It’s dinner. I’m cooking dinner.
Evie: Mmmm…..Mummy? You’re the best mum in the whole wide world. I’m going to give you a little kiss!
And with that, she hopped down from her stool, shimmied on over, and gave me a sweet little peck on the bum.
Even more exciting than a little bottom smooching from my darling first-born, is that both of my picky little Pepperlings declared dinner to be delicious, then wolfed it down, veggies and all. Hurrah!! If that doesn’t count as a #100HappyDays moment, then I don’t know what does.
In the spirit of all this joy and sharing the love, I’m going to throw caution to the wind, and share the secrets of this one pot wonder with you all. You lucky bunnies, you!

Without further ado, here’s how you too can win your very own sweet butt kisses:
