Comments: Worn Out!

So were either of yours early? I keep hoping mine might beat the due date...

The Boy came three days after his due date. The Girl was induced a few days early, because her brother was oversized (9lbs. 2 oz) and had a head in the 95th percentile. We're not sure what we'll be doing this time around.

I've never really thought of it that way, but big-headed babies would be painful. I'll keep praying for your (and the baby's!) continued good health through round three of the Adam's Family Baby Factory.

I hope grandma was not too disappointed in her grandkid's faces over the fried squash. Lady Spud and I go overboard coaching our youngster to be polite if he does not like a particular dish, but they still end up with the loud comments, distorted faces and occasionally spitting food back on the plate.

What's this world coming to when you can't get people to eat fried squash!?

I have to admit, though, that it's a far cry from hashbrowns.

We get yellow crookneck squash, cut it into rounds, dredge in corn meal, and drop it in hot oil. Mmm. I'm hungry. Again.

Fried squash with a cormeal coating is one thing, but fried squash pretending to be hashbrowns is another. Actually, my kids are not big on squash period. We make them take a taste and then tell them their mouths probably aren't grown up enough for it yet.

I guess if they didn't like squash for hash browns you probably shouldn't try to sneak the cauliflower as mashed potatoes by them either.

Since I'm not doing Atkins, I think I'll stick with my beloved potatoes anyway. :)
