Painting Pink Noodles / Warm Peachy

The pink eye has subsided for now. In honor of its departure, we celebrated by painting things pink.

We like painting on random things in our house. The kids love painting dried pasta.
In fact, Blondie and I are considering starting our own jewelry line. So, who wants to buy a pink noodle necklace? We'll donate all proceeds to finding a cure for pink eye.
On sick days like these, it's temping to prop them on the couch with cookies, cake and Blue's Clues, and disregard all healthy eating principles. Consider this treat as an alternative...

(We're eating frozen peaches now because cheap, fresh fruit is slim pickins these days. Substitute fresh peaches in the summer months)

Warm Peachy

frozen peaches
low-fat vanilla ice cream

In an oven-safe bowl, bake thawed peaches topped with a dash of cinnamon and granola at 350 degrees until bubbly. Serve with ice cream. This will make any booboo better.

I was navigating back to your site today through your profile and saw the quote from Biscuit re trucks. Laugh out loud funny. Before blogging, I rarely remembered any of the super entertaining things my son said. Not true any longer. It is great that this crazy blogging world gives us a way to capture (and share) our kid's "wisdom".

You added us to your blogroll. How lovely of you! I love visiting your blog. Today, another great recipe. I am committed. Added us as your follower, and look, we're your first one. Hooray for new things!
