Jennifer Garner and her mother-in-law, Chris Affleck, welcomed the coming of autumn with the Affleck girls – Violet, 3 1/2 and Seraphina, 8 1/2 months – on Tuesday (September 29). The group paid a visit to an orchard near Boston where they enjoyed some apple picking and a hayride.
Jennifer – a self-proclaimed “control freak” in the kitchen – recently described a common dinner in the Garner-Affleck household:
I make really homey food. Just the other night I did a roast chicken with butternut squash and brown sugar. And I did brown rice and some roasted broccoli. I make a wheat pizza once a week. When my daughter is the hungriest, that’s when I try to have vegetables out for her to snack on while I’m finishing dinner. So I don’t start with putting her favorite thing in front of her, I start with putting some snap peas or broccoli with dip or carrots to get her going. I rarely do take-out. I like to be in charge of what we eat. I’m a control freak that way!”
