After clearing the table, but prior to scraping, putting away, and washing up.  (As you can see, corn was not a popular option in spite of the kids begging me for some… ♪Guess what they’re having with lunch today…♪)


  1. The menu was salmon, fauxtatoes, corn, artichoke, and, for those who desired, jello for dessert.
  2. Fauxtatoes are good, and simple!  If you think you don’t like cauliflower, try it. Steam a head of florets for 12 minutes, blend or puree with about an ounce of cream cheese and 1T butter/smart balance/etc, salt & pepper to taste.
  3. I really like these itty bitty glasses from IKEA.  They are a perfect size for little tummies, they have a shape that helps small hands hold the glasses, and—get this—they’re $0.25 each.  We have 18 of them, since 3 kids times meals and snacks and friends coming to play nearly daily meant I never seemed to have enough for an entire day.
  4. If you have not tried substituting juice for the cold water when making Jello, that’s another thing I really love to do here.  The kids think they’re getting a big treat, and I’m sneaking a fruit in, which is a big thing here for certain middle children who only like apples, bananas, melon, and, um… nothing else.
  5. I have way too many apples right now… I know.  :)
  6. Carter obviously didn’t eat the same things the rest of us did.  I probably don’t need to point out this.

Barry and I have the glasses, too. Have had them for years now, but I think ours are the 12 oz ones. Anyway, yes, they rock. :)
