You know, i sometimes wonder what is worth blogging and what is not. I take a bunch of pictures of something that might seem silly to some, and then in the end decide that it just is not worth it. But once in awhile there is something that really seems worth it and this time i did not have a camera....so sorry about being lame and having nothing to show for my tricky work, just a picture of Avery picking part of tonight's ingredients.. Although i may be the only one that is amused by this i feel like sharing. Tonight for dinner i made "green" smoothies. That green translates to spinach included. I chose not to share because that would be the end of my willing kiddie participants. I did not lie...i just left the part about the spinach and celery out. You see, Avery has been a little leery since the beet juicing, dare i say, incident last week. As soon as i offer her a glass of juice that she knows has been juiced or come from the blender she immediately asks, "what is in this?". It is almost like she is on to me. But this beauty had frozen berries and tropical fruit in it, what is there not to like about that. So i talked it up big time at dinner.."mmm, this is so good! taste those yummy strawberries that you picked yourself?". Mitch loved it and drank it down right away....but it sat strangely full beside Avery's plate. Maybe she really was on to me...I was giddy all through dinner. Every time they took a drink and liked it i caught Chris' eye and patted myself on the back, literally. I could not help myself. In the end, it took no convincing at all to get Avery to finish hers. I think there are more "popeye's" in our future. I am just going to have to be sure Avery is nowhere near the kitchen when i make it.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
