we love foooood



despite the panic attack in the grocery store, tonight we had a pretty tasty dinner.

simple, was the menu.

archer and i started with dried turkish apricots. kind of a lot of sugar, but lots of fiber and protein in those little things. more of just a snack to hold him over, and get him out of the kitchen.

then we moved on to the salad.  hard egg, tomato, almonds, and dried pomegranate seeds over a bed of spinach. archer was pretending to be pop-eye, and to my surprise, i didn't even have to use the fast-growing muscle gimmick to get him to eat it. i love the leaves mom. dang it, i forgot the avocado.

for dessert, i cut the tops off of some strawberries, and whipped my own cream (with a bit of honey for hearty sweetness.) twelve strawberries disappeared in less than a minute.

i was very impressed with archer tonight. i'm really proud of that little guy; i know he's going to grow up to be a very healthy and conscious person. michael, on the other hand, had a second dessert of buffalo chicken bites followed by 2 chocolate ice cream sandwiches. when will he learn? ;)

archer's food adventure

my child impresses me everyday.

mike and i took him to a sushi place for dinner last night.  he ate pickled cucumber, cucumber and avocado rolls, and tempura eggplant, zucchini, mushroom, and sweet potato. he even used chopsticks.  i was so amazed at how much food he happily devoured.

he has such sophisticated taste.

what kind of food do your kids eat?


he even tried on a tiny suit jacket at Nordstrom on his own will.
