Every week, I try to make one dish that will last for many lunches and those lonely dinners when Mr. C is in class. This particular ziti dish from Better Homes and Gardens has been a big hit in our house with both of my favorite guys. In fact, Baby C was under the weather this weekend, and is also getting those terrible, horrible, no good molars that I have been dreading. Let’s just say, his appetite was non-existent and this meal changed it all. If you know how sad I get about the tiny state of my under-10th-percentile child, you know that this was a huge win on my part!
This meal is also going to be a lifesaver for the ever-approaching hectic days where both Mr. Cupcake and I are working full-time. I’m also thinking it could be a good staple for some families I know with babies due any day now! Who doesn’t like food dumped on their doorstep?
In somewhat related news, Baby Cakes has been starting to mimic. It’s actually a hilarious stage, but we have to REALLY start….seriously, I mean it this time, watching what we say. Apparently I complain a lot about things being messy. I didn’t know I used that word so much, until one day he approached me with a towel and said, “Messy, messy. Face? Hands?” and proceeded to wipe me in the proper places. Enjoy this little clip of Baby C eating his ziti.
and no, the nose picking is not something that he is mimicking, at least not from me!
