Glow in the Dark Peas
Look how green these things are!!! They are florescent!
Making your own baby food peas is not as fun as I would have hoped. I think this is why women get a years maternity leave in Denmark, so they have time to do all this stuff.
I peeled peas. I betcha' didn't know a pea could be peeled! :) Yep, you just squish them a little on one side and POP! ...out spit two pea halves. ...and they really do fly! I had slippery peas flying everywhere!
When I started peeling the peas I thought to myself, "This is so stupid." So I made a batch of peas without peeling them, but you really could feel the plasticy peels... and Poozle prefers pureed pees without plasticy peels. So I unhappily got back to squishing pees while thinking jealous thoughts of the wonderful babyfood aisle at Safeway. However, I will not peel peas again, I will invest in a sifter thingy with a mesh material so I can just squish them through that. ...or perhaps I'll convince Michaela, Sierra, and Scotty that squishing peas is fun.
Poozle wasn't thrilled with peas, but she ate them like a good little girl. I tried to take a picture of her "concerned" look, but she sees the camera and just smiles!
- and today I I took everyone to their appropriate school and bornehaven for the first time in ten days! Yippie!! (Scotty gets very mad when I call his bornehaven - school or preschool.)
