The joy came when I cut one up into bite size pieces and put it front of my son in his high chair... he stared at them for a bit unsure of what he wanted to do exactly. And then all of the sudden, it was as if one of the long straps of my apron twirled around me and floated up towards his tray pushing his plate just an inch close saying, "go ahead..." he grabs one and puts it directly in his mouth without hesitating! He proceeded to eat two whole pancakes as if they were what he is used to eating every single day! I could barely contain my excitement!
The excitement continued through lunch... Grandma, baby and I went to Whole Foods for a few quick essentials and decided to grab some lunch. We filled up a plate from the salad bar with a few things we thought my son would like. When I came across the falafel I said... why not. Well... he gobbled it up like a pro! "Where's the tzatziki sauce!?" he said.... Okay not really, but he sure did enjoy it and his falafel loving parents are quite proud. Talk about magic being in the air!!
I'm SO excited for tomorrow. We will be going to a Eat Local & Organic Expo, where they will have a mini farmers market with early season crops and workshops on buying, canning and cooking local and organic ingredients. I'm hoping we get to meet the farm we signed with for our CSA and we might even bring home a few goodies! I'll definitely be taking pics!
