Pregnant and Hungry

So my husband decided that he was going to make dinner tonight while we were at the grocery store and I have to say that he did a terrific job. It was so yummy! I had my camera out so I even got a shot before I sat down.

On top of some fine chef skills, my husband possesses an uncanny ability to get preschoolers to try their veggies. Tonight we had asparagus and salad. The four year old was resistant to eating the asparagus. Daddy pipes up, "Oh Monkey, don't eat Junior Asparagus! Don't eat Archibald either! No, don't eat him, aaaaaahhhhhh!"
Wow, tell my kid that he is eating one of his favourite characters from Veggie Tales and he gobbles those suckers right up. Almost seems wrong to me.

I have mentioned before how much I love grocery shopping with my 4 year old boy. He is so enthusiastic and interested in everything. We could spend vast amounts of time in the produce section. There have been many occasions where he has shown interest in an interesting fruit or veggie and we have to try it. Today it was Vietnamese Dragon Fruit. Looks kinda scary, but it was surprisingly delicious. It is supposed to taste like a cross between strawberry and pear, which it did, kind of like a mild kiwi. The kids had fun devouring it!
Check out Immortality Art for more shots of our meal. scroll down for the ones of the kids enjoying their Dragon Fruit.

  3. Dinner looks delicious! We had asparagus last night too with our honey dijon salmon. My Son always says we're having 'funky pee tonight' instead of 'we're having asparagus tonight'....lol because asparagus makes your pee smell.......lol in case you haven't noticed it isn't just us its a common thing lol - actually its quite an interesting science experiment for homeschoolers and lots to be found on the internet about why asparagus gives you funky smelling pee lol!

  4. The dinner looks great! And I think the fruit looks really cool. We used to do that. We'd buy different foods in the produce department about once a month. I'm not sure why we stopped, but that will be something fun to try with Little Elvis when he's older.

  5. That dinner looks delicious - your husband rocks!!! You are one lucky lady! And, Little Billy loves to go to the grocery store and pick out odd fruits and veggies too - we've never tried this one though - sounds good!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you for the prayers for our precious baby. We are hoping for the best, of course, and appreciate all the prayers. See you soon - Kellan
