If you pay close attention, you can pretty much figure out exactly when I figured out the title to any given post. Sometimes it’s at the beginning. Sometimes it’s at the end. Sometimes I pull random crap out of the air and slap it into the title. Nonetheless, you should at least be able to determine WHEN I pulled crap out of the air.
Anyway. I’m not so sure about this “vegetable” thing. I mean how good can they be for you? Really now.
Toasted sesame Ezekiel bread, mustard, red leaf, 1/4 sliced avocado, tomato, banana peppers. Carrots sticks with salsa. I clapped my hands together and squealed before I ate it.
After I got over myself, we lolly gagged around until I finally decided it was about time we ruffled some feathers at the library. But first, a pre-library pear snack. Eaten as it was sliced.
Might as well call it our second home, because we played, read books, had issues with sharing and used the bathroom before left.
After mom’s favorite section (produce) we stopped at Ava and Maxine’s favorite section (the sunglasses display).
Disclaimer: I did not pick out Maxine’s clothes. I never do – she won’t let me. She is nearly 3 and very persnickety about her wardrobe. If it’s my suggestion she’s not interested. And she. Loves. Those. Pants. She also demanded to wear those ballet shoes. Hey man, whatever gets us out of the house.
It’s also worth noting that Ava asked which flip flops she should wear. Her purple ones or turquoise ones. I said the purple ones would match parts of her shirt. She chose the green ones. Oh I see. Disregarding mom’s advice basically begins at birth.
And here’s where things started to get a little out of hand.
Exhibit A: Why I Take My Camera With Me Everywhere We Go.
We moved on to check out at this point, because I didn’t want to risk being escorted out of the store before having a chance to pay for my Green and Black Dark Chocolate and replenish my stash at home.
Before dinner we snuggled on the couch while we read and snacked on some of the last of our Newman’s Own Organic stash.
I must say, these Cinnamon Sugar Soy Crisps were really good. Both kids loved them too which is no small feat. I don’t see myself buying these just because they are processed soy, but there’s no denying they were tasty and as far as snacks go, there are certainly worse things we could eat. (That’s some review, huh? “Certainly worse things we could eat…”)
Dinner tonight? Vegetable Frittatas!
Sauteing onions, green pepper, garlic in EVOO, and a handful of fresh spinach thrown in at the end.
I scrambled up 6 eggs and added S&P and a splash of buttermilk because I still had some left from the corn cakes last week.
Topped with shredded colby jack cheese and popped in the oven under the broiler for about 5 minutes.
I don’t know if it was the cheese or the buttermilk or that fact that I used the broiler this time instead of the stove top (with a lid on the pan) but this turned out great tonight.
The eggs were perfectly fluffy and the combination of flavors was great.
Zak said: “Quiche is so good”.
A: “This isn’t quiche. It’s a frittata.”
Z: “What the difference?”
A: “I don’t know. Quiche has crust!”
Z: “I think this is quiche and you just forgot the crust.”
Did I say Frittata’s for dinner tonight? Sorry, I meant Crust-less Quiche.
