Nope, instead they were taken down by the Boston Red Sox. So you can only imagine how much it stuck in my craw to celebrate today's food - Boston Cream Pie. All I can say is Go Cards!
It's also National Canning Day. Which means I of course had to pull out a jar of applesauce that we did last Fall with my Mom to have with dinner. And in my usual nod to the slightly different take on the day, I also made 5 'can' chili for dinner.
Correction. Mikayla made 5 can chili for dinner. All by herself (mostly) Everything from picking the right cans from the pantry after we'd read the recipe, to using the can opener, to draining a couple of the cans in the collander to mixing it all together - all Kayla. She even watched it on the stove and stirred it up. She even helped me make cornbread waffle sticks to go with it. We all made a really big deal tonight about how good it was and what a great job she'd done. I tell you, I'm going to make a chef out of one of them yet! (OK, so perhaps dumping 5 different cans into a pot and stirring it all together isn't exactly French cuisine, but more than the average 3 year old, I'm thinking!)
I wrapped up my day with a PTA meeting and made it home to a house with two very hard core passed out kiddos and a cleaned up kitchen - a mom's utopia almost. Looking forward to actually catching up with Jen (we had to post-pone this morning) bologna, good & plenty's and skyping with the Kunkle's tomorrow. Until then...
How Noah eats his fruit loops - think he has quite a bit of his Mama in him??
