Baby Pics!

My brother says my baby reminds him of a statue in my mom's house...

I'm not sure I know what he's talking about.

Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day...

We are sick.

By we, I mean three out of the four of us that are home all day long. Baby MULE is doing well.

Whenever I get sick, I always think of eating chicken noodle soup, and no, I don't mean chicken flavored ramen. I have vivid childhood memories of staying home from school and drinking down a bowl of chicken noodle soup with saltine crackers (we would also eat rice soup, but I'll save that for another post). I never liked it as a kid, but it tastes better now that it is mixed with an ounce of nostalgia.

But I have this nasty habit of ruining the eating experience by adding vegetables.

We eat our macaroni and cheese with vegetables.

If I ever cook hamburger helper, I add vegetables.

If I ever make tuna fish sandwiches, I add vegetables.

If I ever make corn bread, I add vegetables.

If I ever make ramen, I add vegetables.

So there I was, can of chicken noodle soup in hand, scrounging around in the refrigerator, looking for, you guessed it, vegetables.

And I found it! Zucchini!

Since the instructions on the soup can say, "Do not boil" I decided to grate the zucchini, that way I didn't have to cook it separately.

Well, sounds great in theory, but in reality...

Sludgy pond water, anyone?

Even I didn't want to eat it.

But then I had a stroke of genius!

Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day.

Give a man a handful of goldfish crackers, and he'll eat just about anything.

What do you eat when you are sick?
