There's a Party in my Tummy! So Yummy...So Yummy!

And now, we interrupt this mass of baby cuteness to talk about something else for a change...

With Ezri starting to eat more and more solids, the questions has oft arose as to whether or not she will be partaking in animal flesh, as we have been vegetarians for the last several years. The answer is a resounding "No." Ezri will not be eating meat until she is of the age to make that choice on her own. The dairy thing we're still working out. As many of you know, we have gone back and forth between being vegetarians (no fish, chicken, beef or anything else that once breathed) and complete vegans (none of the meat PLUS nothing that is derived from an animal - milk, cheese, eggs, etc.). Our current set-up is that we buy only vegan from the grocery store. You would be hard pressed to find so much as a Kraft Single in our house. However, the reality is that we are, by our very nature, lazy people. So while we wouldn't dream of purchasing non-vegan food from the grocery store, we are more than willing to purchase it from Gino's Pizza, Taco Bell, or one of the many other fine dining establishments Toledo has to offer. It's a sickness really, but we are trying to clean up our act before Ezri starts eating foods that can't be slurped through a straw.

The natural follow-up question that comes after we're asked if Ezri will eat meat or dairy is usually, "Well what will she eat then?" Well, here is our typical bounty after a trip to the grocery. (One of us may have gotten a bit camera happy at some point, but it is excellent documentation as to why Ezri will one day suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.)

Eh ... while I enjoy the colorfull bounty you have posted photos of ... it is not nearly as interesting as photos of Ezri. Perhaps you could incorporate her next time you decide to photograph your fridge and cupboards. She is way cuter than a bag of frozen veggies!

:-)

Glad I caught this newest post tonight, otherwise I'd be looking at it tomorrow at school! Yikes!

Mmmm... Silk Milk- One of my favorites...

Love the new layout too! You will have to show me how to paste a great layout without loosing my blog. The ones they let you choose from aren't the cutest.

I have to agree with Orysia... Love the Ezri pics better too:)

The real dilemma is, of course, 'What if Ezri likes Emo?'

Truly, this is a confounding age for parents.

I don't know what is more tragic...that you post pictures of the inside of your fridge and cupboards, or that I find them fascinating. I honestly have never seen better arranged frozen veggies. But that's probably because I don't watch Martha or Oxygen Television or wherever it is that people like you glean your OC-tips. But you're most welcome to come work your magic on my bags of mixed greens any day.

(those bell peppers sure do look nice. Good touch.)
