It's easy being green

peas1.jpgWe moved on to peas today!  And by "we" we mean Calvin, of course, although it was a family affair.  We started with fresh frozen (we can get into the validity of that supermarket lingo later) peas, which looked appetizing enough to us and steamed them.  Post steam treatment they were still looking pretty yummy.  Then we transferred said peas to a blender and "liquefied" them peas2.jpg(a process that is not as simple as the"liquefy"button on your blender will have you believe).  Then, as if liquefying was not inhumane enough, we mixed the now pasty peas with some of the water they were steamed in and a bit of breast milk.  At this point the peas had passed into a food state that only one out of three of us could even possibly find appealing and, with fingers crossed, we let him try them.  The good news is, he seemed to enjoy them.  The bad news is, he enjoyed them enough to share with his bib, his clothing, his highchair...02week28.jpg

Yes, but you dressed in green for the occasion--accidentally or intentionally? I like what green peas do for your eyes.
