So we had a talk about plastic bags and why it is not okay to put them on your head. And why it's not funny even when I take a picture of it and laugh a little. It's dangerous!
And then, seriously two minutes later I turn around and see...
We did have another talk about how your little sister copies everything you do. And I clearly need to find a new home for the ziplocs. And Molly looks freaked out in that picture, but she really wasn't. Sigh.
I'm Cooking: Last night we had Penne with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto. I love this recipe, it's easy and a nice change from regular pesto or spaghetti sauce. I find that it makes plenty of sauce for a pound of pasta, even if you add in some meat or veggies. I used some diced chicken breast and broccoli. Make sure you reserve the pasta cooking water, because you will need it!
On Thursday I had to bring a snack to Porter's preschool, and I made these healthy oatmeal cookies. They end up kind of chewy (and are no substitute for real cookies), but the kids ate them up. I added some cracked wheat and used dried cherries and no nuts.
