What to do?

Sir O has been on a bit of a hunger strike lately... excluding contraband fruit snacks.
In an attempt to get him more involved in his food, we had a cookie-cutter veggie lunch today.
I sliced a parsnip, eggplant, green and yellow squash into 1/8"-1/4" pieces, and let Sir O cut them into shapes with mini cookie cutters. He made it about 2/3 of the way through before he got tired of it, but he kept insisting on doing it "all by myself." We must have arrived at that age. Then I sauted the veggies in butter, added oregano, sage, and parmigiano and we ate! Only, if I'd been smart I would have started cooking the parsnip for a while before the other veggies. By the time they were cooked through the eggplant were overdone and mushy. But it still tasted good! (And Sir O ate it, which was the point)

no freaking way!!!! I am so envious! Though yesterday Conrad ate a plate-full of peas, and that was a miracle.

Good job, Em!!! I'm super-impressed.

Yay Oliver! Now I'm feeling pretty bad that we gave him Ritz crackers, knowing all this. Sorry, Emily.
