She likes it...she likes it not?

As promised, I got a photo of Emma eating the oatmeal bars. A direct quote, "Mmmm!" Yay!

I did watch her eat the rest of it and the only part she apparently DIDN'T like was the dried apricots. It was hilarious watching her feel them on her tongue, roll them around in her mouth and then watch her pull them out as she said "yech." Silly me...I thought she like dried apricots, but now that I think about it, I don't think she ever ate them plain when I gave them to her as a snack or part of lunch.

I found some dried apples in our food storage yesterday and the light bulb went on over my head. I'm going to make the oatmeal bar recipe again, and this time add a little DRIED apple and see how it works.

Also, I was watching The Rachael Ray show a couple days ago and saw a segment about Crock Pot Cooking. Rachael had this lady on that challenged herself to cook 365 homecooked meals for dinner, one every night. But, she did ALL the cooking in the CROCK POT! I was amazed. She also documented her journey on a BLOG, that is now linked on mine! I'm so excited to have access to more (kid-tested, I might add) Crock Pot recipes. Matt's excited too. Now I "don't have an excuse to not use the Crock Pot."

Time to start cooking...!


  1. Ooooh! Crock pots are so useful. I will have to check out that blog. Emma is getting so big! I can't believe it! I guess I'll be seeing you in a few days, if I can ever get myself packed! :P

  2. Haha, ah I love Emma... I need to get a crock pot. I had one, and about two years ago I let a friend borrow it for a findue party. And then she moved to New York... So long Crocky.

  3. just stumbled on to this! cool! since i started i am totally addicted to blogs!!!

  4. I didn't know you had a blog, just found it. Welcome to the world of blogging!

  5. I love crockpot cooking. But I donät do enough of it. It seems it is the perfect family cooking tool. I haven't made anything creative using for a while though, unless you count a pot of beans yesterday.... You know they don't have anything even close to crockpots in Sweden! Unheard of. Strange, huh? considering how useful they are.
