Down on the farm
So, here is the follow up to the bananas for breakfast scenario from yesterday. As many of you know from following the blog, the boys eat a special home cooked diet which consists of ground turkey, oatmeal, yogurt and pumpkin. Well, one of my favorite places to eat dinner out is Bob Evans. Now that it is the fall season, Bob Evans offers pumpkin bread with the meals. While pumpkin bread is one of my favorite holiday treats, I had plenty of dinner to eat and decided to take home leftovers (or a “doggie bag”). So, I brought home a slice of pumpkin bread. The bread was stored in a Ziploc baggie but that did not stop Benjamin from picking up the scent. Of course, Henry, knowing Benny’s nose is never wrong, trotted off to follow him. I unzipped the baggie and tore off a little piece for them to try. After one small bite it was as though their little expressions said, “Mama, our pumpkin never tasted like this before!” And of course, there went baby Benny into his up, down, up down. (You’d think he was doing calisthenics.) I gave them one more small piece apiece. (They are on a special diet to help keep them fit and because they have digestive issues, so they really shouldn’t even have table scraps but what can I say? I AM the weakest link.) Fortunately, for all of us, the pumpkin bread from Bob Evans is seasonal.
