August from the archives: I love the ’80s cookies

So I’m joining the rest of DC and checking out for a week in August. My kids are driving me insane. My house is a mess. It’s hot. I’m bothered. I’m doing something I never do… I’m taking a break. I’m using the “advice column method.” When advice columnists are on vacation, they post past posts from the archives, right? So every day this week, through the magic of advanced scheduling, I’m posting something from my August archives. Also, to make things really easy, I’m copying and pasting this paragraph to start each post. So if you visit me every day, you’ll read this same paragraph. I’m OK with you skipping this paragraph.

Cheerios teething biscuits

2014_7_cheerios_mountford_teething

The drool, the whining, the crying, the gnawing on furniture… Did you guess I mean teething babies? Ugh. Of course I was also the parent who, any time my baby fussed, blamed it on teething. It couldn’t possibly be her perfect temperament. No, it had to be teething.

I wrote all about foods to help with aching gums and created a recipe for Cheerios teething biscuits (that I kept eating my self and that even my six year old was willing to eat)…

HERE at Cheerios.

wednesday links: fun food and craft signs and sign graffiti

2014_roadsign

Please don’t take this photograph as my sanctioning of sign graffiti. (While, um, not sanctioning this illegal act, I feel my first link should be these really rather funny examples of funny graffiti I happened upon when writing this post.) Defacing property is something I have never and would never do. Similarly, the stuffed shirts and the political bigwigs and all the political not-bigwigs who think they are political bigwigs who think you’ll be impressed by what congressperson they work for (we’re not) wouldn’t dare do such a mundane act of rebellion. That is why I stopped and got out of my car to take a photograph of this altered sign when driving up Oregon Avenue along Rock Creek Park in Washington DC. Because it’s so UN-DC. So beautifully un-Washington. And it made me laugh.
