Cauliflower vs. Candy

For lunch on Saturday, Libby and I ate steamed cauliflower with crumbled baked kale chips dusted on top. (Can you tell we're trying to get our cruciferous vegetables in?) When she was finished, she reached up for Jared to get her out of the high chair and promptly lunged for the Smarties (leftover from Halloween) on the counter. Jared, slightly disgusted by the lunch Libby and I were eating, said "how can she go from eating cauliflower to Smarties?" "Easy," I said, "she's a product of me and you." 

And that pretty explains the difference in mine and Jared's eating habits.


  1. as long as she doesn't put cherry koolaid on anything. I still can't drink it. poor Jared had so many food alergies as a kid, he loved the stuff and had it all the time.

  2. I have to try Kale at some point in the next 2 years. What is the best way to eat it?

  3. Meagan - I actually really like the baked kale chips recipe I linked to. They taste a little like potato chips - as long as you put enough salt on them. The only other way I've had kale is in zuppa toscana and this soup:
