Monday Musings

Call me crazy, but I thought it would be really easy start feeding Kellan solids. I thought he’d love them all. However, he is just now starting to actually like foods. He currently loves those little apple sauce pouches and will walk around the house saying “apple, apple” all day long. He also loves goldfish crackers. Quinoa. Chicken Curry. Black beans and corn. And as you can tell by his look of utter despair on his face while staring at the empty bowl, that guacamole is a favorite too. If you have children what was their first “favorite” food?

  • Did you watch the Oscars? What did you think? Ryan and I were able to watch one Best Picture nominee this weekend and we picked Argo. Seems like we picked a good one! I didn’t know the story and was on the edge of my seat the whole movie. I loved it. Did you see it?
  • So I tried a Barre class last Monday. On Tuesday I determined that my house had entirely too many stairs.  But the pain didn’t stop me from going back 2 more times last week. I really really enjoyed it and think it’s going to become a regular thing for me. It’s tough, don’t get me wrong, but it’s a good kind of tough. If you’re looking for a new way to exercise and the idea of a workout with elements of ballet, yoga and pilaties entices you, I think you should give it a try.
  • Did you see the commercial for the new TV show with celebrities diving? I don’t even understand how that can be a show. What is TV coming to? Although, I probably shouldn’t talk…I’m currently addicted to Big Rich Atlanta. Harvin and Meyer are a hoot!
  • So I was kind of excited when Lays announced that one of the flavors of chips that the public could vote on was Sriracha. Maybe I had really high hopes because I am a huge Sriracha fan, but I tried them recently and I was a little let down. OK, I was a lot let down. I don’t think they really taste much like Sriracha at all. They are a little spicy but to me that is the only thing they have in common with Sriracha. Have you tasted them? What did you think? Have you tried the other flavors?

    I bought the Chicken and Waffles and was let down. They taste like a Chicken in a Biscuit cracker dipped in maple syrup.

    Dying to see Argo and Silver Linings Playbook.

    I saw the thing about the Siracha chips…not so sure about that. I did have Siracha chips when I went to visit my grandma in Thailand though – Oh wow YUM!!! I’m sure if you look around in some Asian markets they might have them!
