You can’t visit Cape Cod without going for ice cream. And in our family, it should involve Peanut Butter Sauce. (In this case a soft serve twist smothered in salty and sweet peanut butter sauce at Ice Cream Sandwich.)
As Mom and Dad requested, Charlie finished all his milk before having dessert. (He loves his new, blue cup.)
How many spoons does it take to eat a bowl of yogurt? (If he had more hands… )
Charlie’s grandmothers took him back to Chillingsworth–this time to the casual bistro. Charlie loved eating the angel hair pasta in modified Lady and the Tramp style:
Peculiarly, his favorite part was the sauce–more specifically, rubbing the lobster and Cognac sauce all over his face and hair. (We have no idea what inspired the shellfish facial.)
Note the greasy sheen… and the chunks of pasta stuck to his face:
You knew it was bound to happen. Charlie ate his first summer truffles. They flavored a dish of fluffy, ricotta ravioli at Pain d’Avignon.
He put on quite a show of eating the truffles, dancing a little “good food” jig between each bite.
Pizza party with both his grandmothers at the beach! (This time, it was Sweet Tomatoes spinach & mushroom. There were freeze dried peach chips for dessert.)
Charlie got a new treat: eating his pulled pork burrito in the living room while his mom and grandmother watched the news.
That’s right, Charlie ate his mom’s favorite, sweetbreads. His mom is so proud. Charlie, in fact, enjoyed 5 courses at Chillingsworth in honor of his grandmother’s birthday. He also showed early signs of skill as a sommelier when he commandeered the empty Rosé bottle and practiced pouring.
Sorry about the grainy photos–Charlie enjoys mood lighting.
We were so lucky to enjoy dinner with friends at Pizza Barbone.
Those are the amazing arancini Charlie’s eying up.
Charlie enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with friends at The Red Cottage: linguica, whole grain toast, scrambled eggs, bacon and raspberry pancakes–he was still eating for 10 minutes after everyone else finished.
We also figured out how to get him to eat potatoes (see previous post My Kid Hates Potatoes)–smother them in hollandaise sauce, add some ham, fried onions and tomatoes (aka Red Cottage Home Fries).
Charlie discovered the joys of bread pudding. Thank you Pain d’Avignon.
And just for fun, this is what Charlie looked like at snack time. Guess eating hummus was a hair-raising experience:
(So in love with the antique high chair.)
