Last night my nephew Gideon was here. He and his family come over for dinner on Monday nights. I've had to learn how to make things a little bit kid friendly. Last night we had chicken tortilla soup. It was a bit spicy...so next time I will make it less spicy.
I love watching him try new things! He copies what the adults do, but of course he knows that the good ol' stand bys of  ketchup and mustard are always just a please away. Last night he followed our lead by using the cheese and sour cream in his soup and insisted on extra tortilla strips!

At the end of the night we ended up on the couch watching Anthony Bourdain eat at a fish fry in the Ozarks of Missouri while eating an orange together. He'd look at me and say "Here this slice is for you. Why did he eat that?" I would answer, because that is good food. Then it got to the point of squirrel pot pie...."What are they doing?" ......Uhhh, being self sufficient?
Oh well, I don't think he will remember the squirrels, but he will remember that we hung out together, and later laughed at Bill Cosby and shared another orange!

He will try new things and I'm so proud of him for that.....it helps when there is dessert to be had of course!

I can't help but share this!!!

First one of the blogs I read is called CHEAP HEALTHY GOOD. It's really informative and it's awesome and you should read it.

Now they do a top ten Links of the week, and at the bottom of this weeks was a link. A link to amazingness. PAULA DEEN RIDING THINGS.

It's awesome and Paula is great because she laughed about it!

This was one of my favorite pics!

So lately foam as part of a dish has been said to be high fashion.

"And the foam has the aroma of lavendar and is lightly frothed out of the mouth of a dog."

That is what I hear. Also that is what I see...gross!

Sorry I haven't been writing lately. We've had a big fat busy couple of months. Although, honestly I feel like it's been years since I wrote last.

I will try to be better about writing. Is it okay if it's sometimes a rant against foam?

This is Unappetizing!
