Look what I bought...

I ordered the sneaky chef cookbooks and headed to the grocery store. My family has never eaten these things in real life and probably never will. I will have to "sneak" them into foods that they already eat like spaghetti sauce and mac and cheese. As some of you know Brooke is a self made vegetarian. She has NEVER liked meat, chicken, or much else. From the time she was old enough to eat foods she refused any meat and can find the tiniest pieces in soup or spaghetti sauce. She has also given up peanut butter so I am really worried. She will only eat a handful of foods, mac and cheese, spaghetti, pizza, breadsticks, green beans, oatmeal, peanuts, cheese only nachos, and if it is a good day grapes and apples. That's it folks. Well, except for any sort of chocolate cake, candy or cookie. She is lactose intolerant so she drinks soy milk with omega proteins. Oh and she eats waaaay too much ice cream thanks to dad. I am excited to use some recipes but unfortunatley I can't hide too much in the only foods she will eat. But Blaire will eat and try lots of new things but doesn't really like veggies or fruit so it should work great for her and Ayric. I will keep you posted on whether or not my family eats the stuff!

Couldn't resist-

Here are some random pics from the last few days, I couldn't resist posting. These are straight out of the camera (ha ha), that's the only way around here since I really haven't figured out the photo editing software. I did figure out however how to cut Ayric's hair. We bought a clipper set mainly because he always HATES his hair after he gets it cut. He says they mess it up and has been asking me for years to learn how to cut his hair. Well, it looks pretty darn good and think of the money we will save. We just need some more boys around here to take advantage of my skills.
