Who are the Tiny Tarts?

The Tiny Tarts are the Country Tart's two young daughters who help out so much in the kitchen, in the creation of this blog and in the production of the SERVING up a SMILE weekly column, that it only seems fitting that they get their own space to share what it is they do.

What's for Lunch

Leftovers were never a welcome meal in my own childhood but as an adult I have learned that making ends meet is far more than a notion.  If I sliced up leftover meat (in this instance: venison loin) and placed it on a sandwich, I am certain it would have been met with an "awww, mom!"  By diciing it fine and mixing it with corn, shredded cheese, beans and salsa and then stuffing into miniature wheat pitas, suddenly, this meal has a new life.  Most importantly, it is a life that the tiny tarts do not suspect to be leftovers.

Picnic with a Couple of Very Tiny Tarts!

Perhaps the best argument for introducing kids to fruits and veggies early: they are just that much more adorable when playing with their food!  An added bonus is that they grow naturally learning to love the foods that love them back.
