Food thoughts. . .
Tonight we tried a new (to us) veggie- Jicama (pronounced "hick-ama"). For those of you who haven't tasted it, it's kind of like eating a raw turnip, only juicier, and slightly sweet and nutty. I tried it in a Rachel Ray recipe called "Black Bean and Jicama Salad". The boys bravely took bites of it, Benji calling it "sick-ama". They're real troopers about trying new foods, but unfortunately Alec usually doesn't like anything! I enjoyed the taste of it, but probably would have preferred it in another dish. The salad had red onions in it, which I like, but they don't like me! We'd like to try it again; anyone have any good ideas?
For lunch yesterday, I had a brilliant idea. . .Benji loves veggie sandwiches (red pepper, cuke, lettuce, mayo, etc.), but they're really hard for him to eat 'cause they fall apart. I was making his lunch and glanced over at my food processor. I threw the veggies in with the grating attachment, blotted the excess "juice" off (the peppers and cukes get really watery), and then put them along with some mayo and grated cabbage on one of his spelt tortillas. He loved it, and it was really easy to eat. I love my food processor!!

Don't know if you guys are big hummus people, but my 2 1/2 yo Hannah will eat pretty much any veggie if she has hummus to dip it in. :)
