With my husband finally back from weeks of business travel, I can begin thinking about the coming holiday. But to be honest, I just want a break!
Maia's lunch: oyster crackers; Tofurky slice; pea shoots; pickle; steamed asparagus; carrots; cherry tomato.
Today was the Thanksgiving feast in Nate's preschool class. The parents walking around asking if kids would like some "delicious chicken" brought him to tears at first, but I encouraged him to try the pumpkin muffins & stuffing we'd brought (he had two helpings) made with farm vegetables (sadly the celery leaves in the stuffing were the only green vegetable among the dozen plus food items). He
eventually decided to have
some cider and a clemen-
tine as well, and I'd given
him some animal crackers
to replace all of the other
But he looked cute wearing
his painted pasta necklace
and vegetable print vest.
Maia's class made mini pumpkin pies...hers made with tofu instead.
I never did get 'round to posting fridays lunches...I was at the end of my rope then!
And here's Maia grazing on pea shoots at the farm yesterday...
...while Nate managed to find
probably the last fluffy dandelion
to make wishes with.
