And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

It's Not Easy Being Green

When I was growing up, my mom always provided wonderful, colorful meals- colorful meaning plenty of fruits and veggies. The more color and the darker the color....the better it is for you. A plate consisting of all white/cream/etc either means not enough nutrient or too much cauliflower. With our CSA, we have had no excuse for partaking in a nutrient lacking meal. Another delicious omelet for breakfast, salad for lunch and a homemade arugula, walnut, ricotta pesto for dinner. This to a great start with homemade raspberry scones with fresh picked raspberries from the patch in our backyard. The Roelofs family is "going green" in more ways than one- literally eating a lot of green food.

Correction....the Roelofs family minus the youngest member. The other day Ben was mouwing down banana out of the feeding sack. I figured he had enough banana for the day for fear of digestive disaster further down the road but he still seemed like he wanted something to eat. I was eating a bowl of peas and thought it would be worth a shot to put some peas in the feeding bag and give that a whirl. We've tried baby food peas and that definitely was met with gags, but maybe fresh, whole peas would be different. He enthusiastically took a chomp.......
Looks like Mommy and Daddy will be eating all the greens this year. Back to bananas and yogurt for Benjamin.

I'm pretty sure that "mouwing" is not a word, but I love it.

Ben, all green vegs taste bad. Might as well get used to it.
