But I digress.
As I was saying, I was trying to get Natalia to eat more vegetables. I had made some spinach-carrot brownies earlier in the day (quite good) and had some beet puree left over beet puree from something or other. So I decided to make beet-spinach gnocchi.
And what a helper she was. After asking for a "tiny spoon" she decided to fill an empty ice cube tray with the gnocchi mixture. I think that she got at least half of the tray full.
Thirty minutes later we all sat down for dinner. I dished her up her regular tray of pears, cheese, and chicken but added a little gnocchi this time. Did she eat any of it?
Are you kidding me!?!? Of course not!!! (But it sure was fun to feed to Odin.)
Does she like to eat Play-doh that is the same color? But of course!!!
How about quarters, plastic eggs or Odin's toys. Yum yum.
What about pink gnocchi? Yuck, don't make me puke!!!!
Oh well. At least I got my vegetables for the day.
