No better pairing than a chocolate chip cookie and a cold glass of milk.
Mom made this long bean fried rice for dinner. But she had to strike a deal with Charlie: You eat all of your rice (about 2 Tbsp) and you can have an ice cream bar (frozen yogurt). Guess who ate all of his fried rice?
What Charlie Ate is one year old. Oh, and Charlie is two today!
The day started with whole wheat pancakes with chocolate spread and finger raspberries.
Then it was off to Disneyland, (California Adventure).
For his snack, Charlie enjoyed a chocolate-covered Mickey Mouse on a stick.
As soon as he finished, he asked for an ice cream cone. His motivation became clear when he wanted nothing but ice for lunch: teething. (He did manage some pasta with tomato sauce and a cheese stick.)
In the late afternoon, he got that ice cream cone. It was chocolate, of course. Despite the fact that he requested a cone, Charlie insisted on eating most of it with a spoon.
There was no room for dinner.
Happy birthday chocolate-covered child!
Introducing the Finger Raspberry:
Charlie was not feeling good today. I believe the medical term is “the sniffles.” After he rejected most of his lunch, we took a different approach to dinner, offering him a soothing frozen kefir bar.
He ate two and a half. He was pleased as could be, saying, “Look Mommy–ice cream popsicle!”
Charlie enjoyed a lovely picnic lunch at the beach (although he couldn’t wait to get to the sand before polishing off the raspberries).
(He’s gazing into the bowl hoping more will magically appear.)
After dinner, Charlie experienced his first chocolate cheesecake.
It was a hit. He was covered from head to foot by the time he was done with it. And we really do mean foot.
(How did he get cheesecake all the way down there?)
