A couple of things
Words you don't necessarily expect to come out of your six year old's mouth:
- "can you get some more of that kale at the store so that daddy can try it?"
- "whew, that kale was soooooo yummy!"
We just finished watching the season of Worst Cooks in America on the Food Network and crispy kale as a side dish was something that seemed to be popular this year. I know that it is a good-for-you vegetable and so I picked some up at the grocery store this afternoon and loosely followed this recipe. We all really enjoyed it and obviously, it passed the boys' taste test.
Remember that roly poly from last Saturday?
|Just to clarify...there were two roly polys (polies?) in this picture, but the wind got the better of one of them!|
This is where he (the survivor) lives now:
He's still alive and kicking and is apparently our 'first pet' since I had the boys change out his grass and give him a name this afternoon. For the record his name is "Donkey Kong Wario Bowser". After they had been playing outside for a while, I had called William in to read with me and when we went back out, Xavier was sitting and talking to him and just 'spending some time with him.'
Let's just say, lowest maintenance pet ever.
