it's come to my attention that babies love orange colored food (well, at least my baby). there's cheddar cheese, peaches, goldfish crackers, mandarin oranges, sweet potatoes, carrots, mac&cheese, and mangos (orangy-yellow). not only do they taste good, but when smushed into clothing, most stain. every kid's dream, if you ask me. often i look at ella's high chair tray and see a sea of orange - mac&cheese, carrots and peaches. i've got to start mixing up the colors a bit.
tell me if this still happens to you: you're driving along and someone in the other lane flashes their lights at you, and no, they don't want to harvest your spleen, but they are alerting you to the po-lice parked a little ways up the road. i find this hysterically funny. it's happened to me twice in two days. i can't quite explain why it's funny. maybe because i'm suzie speed limit and alerting me of police up ahead doesn't really help me. maybe it's because i imagine the person in front of me saying "well, damn it all! i was about to rob that mini-mart but now i can't!". maybe because it's soooo good 'ole boy network. i don't know. but it cracks me up.
if i see one more recipe with mascarpone cheese in it, i'm going to hurl. enough already!
