"Delicious!" is one of Jude's favorite words to use when he tastes something he likes. And it sounds so cute being said in excitement with his little boy voice.
I've recently picked up the book Deceptively Delicious after having a couple friends recommend it. I really like it so far, and our neighbor's recommend the sweet potato mac n' cheese, with a double dose of the sweet potato.
The main idea of the book is to add healthy vegetable purees (that match in color) to the foods you already make. So that's why you'd put a little sweet potato in your home made mac n' cheese, because it matches, for those of you who may have needed a bit more explanation. :)

Well, today I'm baking up a bunch of veggies to puree and put in my freezer, and as I pulled the foil wrapped beets out of the hot oven I instantly thought of what Dwight Schrute's beet farm must smell like! What really cracked me up is that in my mind it's a real place. :)

What's NOT so delicious, is that today Jude tasted his markers for the first time, and that's actually what he's doing in that first photo above... giving me a "caught" smirk and with his eyes telling me that he just might find those markers to be a tad bit delicious.

Hehe, that's so cute! Good thing his markers are non-toxic! :) That book sounds good! We've been trying to eat better lately and have been making a lot of food at home, which is better and cheaper. I'm excited we're making beef stew tomorrow.. yum! We can't wait to hang out with you guys soon. Give our love to the kidos!

He is too cute!!! Might want to stay away from the smelly makers, as they are extra enticing ;) Just kidding! I know my students love them from their blue, green, and pinked tipped noses. They always gape at me with wide-eyed amazement when I ask if they've been sniffing the smelly markers... "Mrs. Marshall, how did you know?" haha!

It was actually the mac and cheese with butternut squash that we like, but I'm sure you could use sweet potato...that sounds even better!

I bought this cookbook for both Sarah and Kellie. I'm going to give it to them when they start my grandchildren. The sooner the better!!
