Post #15

I am back at home. Regular day at the office today.

It feels good to be back at home with the family. I missed the boys so badly. It is great to be back with them. I love getting to put them to bed and read them their stories.

They haven't wanted to eat anything for the past month or so. I thought at first it was because of the teething (they each have about 14 teeth already) but now that they are all in and they still don't want to eat I don't know.

I am so desperate to get them to eat that I made a gross concoction tonight with the hope that they would get some of it into their gullets. It went something like this.

Meat Tortellini
Canned Pumpkin
Tomato Paste
Bread Crumbs
Wheat Germ

Mix all together, put in casserole dish and bake for 25 minutes (or dish out lukewarm before screaming gets too loud).

Believe me, I do not believe in torturing my children. I ate the stuff first. I stood in front of them pretending that it was "sooooo Delicious!" Blech. But it ended up being my dinner too. I am a team player don't ya' know.

Waylon actually ate quite a bit of the glop. Vlad, not so much. I redeemed myself with garlic bread which we all enjoyed very much.

This culinary delight was topped off with one Empire apple, that nobody really ate.

Ah well. I will keep on trying new mash ups until I find something that they will eat. In the meantime, I don't think we have to worry about either of them wasting away....

Pumpkin AND tomato paste?

Hmm...that would be a tough one. You are so much a trooper.

Anyway, don't worry about the lite diet. Believe me, when they come out of that phase it will be with a vengance.

More cute kid pictures please!

EWWWWWWWWWWWW! What is wrong with you??? I know you do some funky things with food, but now you're subjecting your poor kids!! Jack use to love spaghetti and broccoli aioli. And little appetizer hot dogs.
