Food adventures

Ways to use up over-ripe bananas:
1. Banana bread
2. Smoothies
3. Feed them to Peter Lawrence!

We've just started Pete on solid food with some moderate success!

We started out with carrots and he was "not impressed" (quote from Pete's teacher).

On a whim I gave him a spoonful of my favorite Roasted Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato soup and he gobbled it up! We sent it to school the next two days and he couldn't get enough!

And, today, I mashed up an over-ripe banana and he ate the whole, blessed thing! I lifted the spoon of the bowl, and Pete would excitedly kick his legs and grab for the spoon to "bring it home!"Quite impressive.

Next on the docket will be CSA peas that arrive on Monday night.
