DIY snacktime No comments yet

The postings have been a bit slow in the last week. I was finishing some freelance work, Adam picked up a cold, incubated it, and passed it on to me and W, so we were all pretty vrot over the weekend.

And now I’m trying to study for my driver’s test which I have to do this week. I can’t remember any of the distances (stopping 15 feet from a railway crossing etc) so I’ll just have to wing it on the multiple choice. Why the US can’t just use the metric system like the rest of the world I don’t know…

Anyway, Adam is becoming very assertive at meal times. He wants to do stuff himself. I’ve decided to make peace with the mess and encourage him – because the sooner he is able to take care of what goes in one end and comes out the other, the sooner my life should get a little easier.

I’m also trying to give him a variety of things to eat, which means that new food must be properly examined and have all its properties explored, before it can be eaten.

So I spend alot of time cleaning up….

My (new) favourite things, to eat 3 comments

If course, one of the best things about being in a new place is all the new food you get to try out. In my case, a few of my new favourites are:

  • Dr Pepper soda
  • Reeses peanut butter cups
  • Santitas corn taco chips, with chipotle salsa
  • Mexican avocados
  • Ben & Jerry’s chunkey Monkey ice-cream
  • Texan chilli

Adam has also been refining his tastes. He likes:


Peanut butter on bread


His friend’s ricecakes (even though he HAS a cookie in his hand)

Pretty much anything…
