Romanesco Cheddar Bites

On February 25, 2012, in Yummy Goodness, by Wendy

1 head of romanesco, chopped and steamed until tender
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 medium onion, minced
3 eggs, beaten
6 – 8oz Cheddar cheese, grated

Pre-heat the oven to 375°F. Chop romanesco into uniform pieces. You don’t want big chunks or the patties will fall apart. Throw everything into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper. Shape the mix into small patties. Bake 15 minutes. Flip and bake 12 more minutes.

On February 2, 2012, in Kid, by Wendy

When I grow up, I will have lots of eggs and when they leave my body, they will become my daughters.


Wendy: What did you do at school today?
Izzy: I played.
Wendy: Who did you play with?
Izzy: Marlow, Claire, Kiera, Sibyl, and Ila
Wendy: what did you play
Izzy: tiles, play dough, blah, blah, blah.


Izzy: Look mommy! I wiggled out of my straps (of her car seat).
Wendy: please put them back on.
Izzy: why?
Wendy: because it is dangerous.
Izzy: why?
Wendy: because it is dangerous.
Wendy: because if daddy gets into an accident you will fly through the windshield and get hurt.
Izzy: okay mommy. I put my straps back on.
