I am overwhelmed today, but not too overwhelmed to participate – albeit briefly – in the Spin Cycle.  The subject is “food.”

I have no recipe or diatribe today, just a picture to give you an idea of where we spent the weekend:


This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of G Man photos, folks.  Tip of the iceberg.

Have a great Monday, y’all, and I’ll be back tomorrow with a recipe.

    1. He was certainly savagely attacking his lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory – we’d just spent an hour running non-stop at what is called a “water playground.” Instead of swings and slides and monkey bars, lots of sprinklers and fountains to run through. He had a blast and was famished. Before he ate his meatballs he inhaled a cup of applesauce, so it was all good.

    1. He does, but he’s lukewarm about eggs and cheese these days; you know toddlers, they’ll eat one food with enthusiasm one week, and not touch it again for a month. He’s very much into meat and fruit these days; he did eat some of the green and yellow wax beans I served for dinner Sunday (they had onions and bacon 🙂 ), but wouldn’t touch the slaw I’d made. Interestingly enough, he also did not eat the spaghetti that came with his meatball. It made a wonderful toy, though. LOL

  1. Nice to see a little guy eat a meat ball. From the sounds of it, he and little o should be dining companions. They’d be like Jack Sprat and his wife. O can’t get enough veg and fruit or pasta, but meat? On and off.

    That face just gets cuter with age. Must take after his G-ma…

    1. Ah, if only I could say he did. Alas, we are not related by blood (as if that makes me adore him any less). He does, however, resemble his very handsome grandfather so it’s all good.

  2. What a cute kid! I’m getting caught up on blogs, so have read a few back ones of yours. I totally agree about the eggs. My usual source of island eggs has dried up because the chickens are not laying just now. But I’m looking for another source. They taste so different.

    And I was hoping for a meatball recipe that doesn’t have wheat in it — and meatloaf as well. I love those things and can’t eat them anymore. I bet you have some that I have missed!

    1. Anne: I made these meatballs this weekend and I think they are quite good:
      2 lb. hamburger
      2 eggs
      one 10 oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
      1 c. Trader Joe’s almond meal (not the blanched kind)
      1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
      1/2 tsp. sea salt
      1/2 tsp. garlic powder
      2 tbsp. dried parsley
      Mix everything up, form into meatballs, put in a greased baking pan. Bake 350 degrees for 30 – 35 min. depending on the size of your meatballs.
      They are so good that my puppy will even come to me to get a bite of one when he’s out running around (with the puppy zoomies).

  3. Sprite wouldn’t touch a meatball. Even if I told her Mickey Mouse himself made it. But she is competitive. I may need to print out this picture for future reference. You’re linked and it’s a great start to your Spinning week!

  4. I think my head is about to explode from “too much to do” stress. It’s very nice to see a photo of your adorable grandson to distract me. (But seriously, don’t tell anyone I was here. They might find me …..)

  5. Love when the little guys eat so willingly. We go rounds with our littlest. Some days are good eating day, some days aren’t.
