Pears it Is!!!







Well, the pears won overwhelmingly. Poor peas...no one voted for them. I personally can understand why...blech. I hate peas. I don't cook peas, eat peas or serve peas. Dan will never have peas on his dinner table. Never. I did buy some baby food peas at my last trip to the market. I went a bit overboard and got six jars. Six! I sure hope she likes peas!

Anyways, back to the pears. Baby food pears looks a lot like applesauce. I tasted them, as I force myself to taste all her food, and they tasted surprisingly like pears. They even had that semi-gritty aftertaste that lingers a moment after biting into a Bartlett or Bosc. Almost like grains of sand embedded into the flesh of the fruit. They were slightly tart, which explains Aveline's expression after each bite. I thought they would couple well with the green beans. I may have been wrong.

I was chatting with my sister Lauren on the phone while feeding her. I could not stop laughing! The faces Aveline generated while I forced the pears into her mouth were priceless. I wonder what she will think of peas!

I think she gets those from Dan!

She just may like the peas. I fed her some peaches today and she seemed to like the green beans better. What a weird kid!

Jon said that he had a great time with her this past weekend! I miss my time with her! I can't wait to see the pics he took either! I just realized, this has nothing to do with the pics posted here, sorry!

I never liked peas either until my dad grew some one summer. Fresh peas are surprisingly good. And frozen ones are pretty close as long as you don't cook them to death. But canned peas are nasty!!LOL
