Then we will move on to a family dinner of acorn squash, brussels sprouts, green beans, and a pumpkin-apple tart! That's the way we get into Fall around here!
Disclaimer: This is another Cora overload post.
Another one of the suggestions in my 365 Games Smart Babies Play book was a nature centerpiece.
The idea is to take a walk in nature and collect different things that you see. So, we went to the park.
Cora found some sticks to put in the bag.
She managed to find a few leaves.
She hid in the leaves.
She ate some leaves.
She found a couple huge sticks for the bag.
She went down the slide.
She went down the slide again.
Then she held on tightly to the slide in case we tried to make her leave it.
Spoiler alert: We did make her leave it.
We headed home and made our glorious nature centerpiece.
|I tied a little ribbon to that bad boy because that is how you make something festive.|

Scott made us some delicious Fall food which consisted of acorn squash, green beans, brussels sprouts, and an apple-pumpkin tart. (Some of these things may not be considered Fall foods but just go with it).
Now, I would like to introduce you to a new segment called: Cookin' With Chris!
Scott's real name is Christopher Scott, but he goes by Scott. In college, he and a couple of friends recorded Scott cooking and called it Cookin' With Chris. Scott, did I get that right?
Cookin' With Chris!
I had Scott write down the recipes for the food he made. I didn't have much to work with. So, here it is.
They were frozen. So, Scott just added a little salt and olive oil and stuck them in the oven for about 15 minutes.
It was delicious!!! Mmmmmm sooo good! I think Scott cut them in half and microwaved them for a while. Then, he added the ingredients and put them in the oven.
- olive oil
- parmesan cheese
I guess you are going to have to figure out how much of each and what to do with them.
Brussels Sprouts (ps who knew that is was Brussels not Brussel?)
He just threw some Brussels Sprouts Steamers into the microwave, threw some parmesan cheese on them, and ta-da! They were done.
- 1 egg
- baking powder
- 5 spice
Put some granola on top. Then serve with pumpkin yogurt.
Hopefully, if Cookin' With Chris partners up with Never Listless again the recipes will be a bit more detailed and the writing will be a bit more Scott-like.
And the answer to The Grocery Guessing Game from the other day is...
The big winner is... Dr. Becca Price with $37.50 (even though Louise tried to pike her answer by making it just a dollar more).
Congratulations, Becca! It must have been the birthday week magic that won it for you!
And now... The Would You Rather Question of the day!
WYR... spend the rest of your life living in the White House as the president's personal chef. (Your immediate family can live there too. You get paid 3/4 of your current salary and get average benefits).
continue working the job you work now and living in your current house but you get a 15% increase?
I hope I get some answers on this WYR. I know it is a random one, but I'm curious what people think.
