Dylan isn’t the biggest fan of pasta, but the other night I made a new dish and he seemed to like it ok. I cubed some purple eggplant and salted it to get out the excess moisture (you rinse before you cook). Then I sauteed some garlic in some olive oil. I added the eggplant and some Italian seasonings. After letting it brown a little, I poured the eggplant in a casserole dish, added bread crumbs, sauce and some sliced mozzarella cheese. I baked it in the oven for a bit and then put it over some whole wheat spaghetti. It was pretty good for making up the recipe.
The other day I was washing dishes and straightening up my kitchen and Dylan was off somewhere playing. The next thing I know, he comes in the kitchen with my hair towel on his head. First, I am really impressed that he managed to get it to stay on his head, but since I usually shower at night and he doesn’t see me with it on, I have no idea how he knew it went on your head. I wish I could have gotten a better picture, he was so cute running around, all proud of his new hair towel.
This last picture is Dylan very sad that his bowl of grits is empty. I had never made them for him before, but he loved them and ate two entire bowls full. I also made some pork ribs in the crockpot with BBQ sauce (and I hate my crockpot – it’s too hot and overcooks everything – I need to stop using it). He loved the pork too, but the grits were by far the winner. He was too impatient to try to spoon it in his mouth himself (something he is not good at yet) and he didn’t want to wait for me, so he just started grabbing handfuls and trying to eat it that way. Needless to say, there were grits EVERYWHERE.
