I agree! Kids need to explore, play barefoot, climb trees taste the odd bug etc.
Caitlin sometimes nicks a sip of my Amarula liqueur when she thinks I'm not looking. I just pretend I didn't see. We all do naughty things at some point. Better my kids satisfy their curiousity now than end up drunk and in trouble the first time they get offered alcohol.
My children walk barefoot most of the summer, they don't have computer or TV games. They play outside every day, Caitlin gets a tiny glass of wine or a tot of Amarula on Christmas day and a tiny glass of champagne on New Years Eve. Daniel is younger so he just gets a sip from me and sometimes a sip from daddy too.
They eat fruit and veg each day, they only drink water, milk and diluted fruit juice. They are both healthy and active children and they look it too.
I'm not raising my kids with junk food and shoving them infront of a TV screen when I don't feel like being the mom.

butter, cointreau, oranges, recipe, sugar, walnuts

TNT Oranges with Liqueur This makes a light ending to a heavy meal. Zest 1 orange and fill a small saucepan with water about 1/3 full. Bring to boil and the zest to the water and boil 3-5 min. Drain and dry the zest with paper towels. Cut the ends off 6 large oranges, then slice off the peel and makes sure to get the white skin. cut the oranges in to slices about 1/3 inch thick.Check for and remove any seeds. Arange slices on a platter ocwelapping sprinkle slices with 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts set aside. Melt 2 Tab. butter in pan and then stir in 1/3 cup sugar,the dry orange zest, and 1/4 cointreau or brandy. Cook over med heat til sugar is dissolved. Add the juice of one orange and cook til is a med thick syrup. Spoon over the oranges and serve. This not kid friendly unless you top with something other than the liqueur.I just put more OJ with sugar for the kids enjoy kades 3 stars 1 reviews
