Gotta go pick coconuts

Matt needs coconuts for his lobster trap. Odd really, but evidently lobsters love coconuts.
We're going to use coconuts to lure them into the old bird cage turned lobster trap that Matt has constructed. I forgot to get a picture of it but hopefully I will remember tonight (and hopefully there will be lobsters in it as well!)
One can only hope- season ends tomorrow so if they don't catch any, no lobster for months!

Journey & his Breakfasts

Journey is a unique specimen of Boy.
His early morning cravings are very specific and the most unusual I have ever encountered.
He always knows precisely what it is he wants and there is never a rhyme or reason to it.
Here you see him on Thursday morning eating hummus and vegetables, kalamata olives, & feta cheese... one of my favorites for sure but I was almost certain this was "girl food" and couldn't believe that in the early morning, he should request this.
On Friday morning he was rummaging through the pantry and came out with a can of Chef-Boy-ar-dee. Never having had this before, he was all the same, quite sure that nothing else would suffice.
Saturday morning he refused waffles, cereal, and toast with jam... instead demanding pizza.
Sunday morning he asked for cookies and milk - the most unhealthy request he has yet made & more surprisingly his father gave it to him without question.
This morning he wanted bbq sesame fish & a slice of lemon/blueberry coffee cake.
I am almost scared to see what he'll ask for tomorrow.

My lovely boys working in our garden!

When I am in my kitchen...

I have this great view from my kitchen window:

Isn't it the best view anyone could ask for?

First Fruits

What's that on your face, kid? ...only the first fruits from our new veggi garden! Everyone loves eating fresh stuff from the backyard- even the pickiest kids.
If you have them pick it: they WILL eat it.
(I mean admit the logic- it is the only way boogies could possibly have appeal)
We made soft tacos with our very own...

Granted, it really was too young to be picking, but...

Fresh Baby greens just sounded so good!
