Today's attempt to wean the girls off of Annie's Organic Peace Pasta - Creamy Orzo with Chicken, Mushrooms, and Red Peppers, from a site I won't name since I'm finally understanding that its recipes are hopelessly bland! I left out the red peppers, but since they were bell peppers, I don't think that would have improved the dish significantly enough for it to be more edible. The girls won't eat it, so I'm left with a large wok full of leftovers, and not enough chili garlic sauce in the world to get through it.
On a side note, I bought Duralex bowls and plates recently - supposedly 2.5 times stronger than regular glass - and I put in a bowlful of the pasta and set it on the counter. I was in the other room changing Naya's diaper, Lani in the kitchen playing at the table, when I heard a tinging sound. Assuming Lani had thrown toys on the ground, I ambled over to the kitchen only to find her looking stunned at the table, and the bowl shattered on the counter and all over the floor. THANK GOD she wasn't closer, or Naya wasn't in the room! Law. Suit. Lani also noted that "it's good Naya wasn't here" which was a purely sweet and thoughtful thing. She's still trying to milk it for all it's worth though, describing how she assumed a crash position when it happened (doubtful), and how it was like a windshield (how does she know what to say to freak me out more??)
