Reality Show ("Chopped") Inspired Meal Planning - one thing thats come more naturally for me in this SAHM business is the idea of meal planning. Except I don't plan my menu then go grocery shopping. I do it the "Chopped" way - I go get my on sale produce and good-lookin' meats (thus my "mystery basket") and then come up with something with whats in the pantry. Its worked so far - we get a variety of foods and rotate through different produce/grains. Watching the show has really inspired me to think differently about cooking - especially that episode where they used leftover pizza and beer as ingredients to make totally new appetizer foods.
Popcaks too much - but they are AWESOME! ) - babywearing, extended nursing, making my own bebe food.. So CONSTANTLY these older relatives or peers are questioning our practices and giving me weirdo suggestions.. (weirdest one? injecting children with poop. NO THANK YOU - if I find out someone is actually doing that, I would probably call child protective services!) I also totally do not believe in Chinese post-partum practices ("the month") - I actually found an article in a peer-reviewed journal about how there was no difference in chronic pain between women who adhered to the "month" and those who didn't.. However citing science doesn't matter to some.. and none of these folks have produced any articles or reading to suggest that their practices are evidence-based.

Smoke but no fire... My husband and I kept smelling poopy diapers tonight, so we kept having to check the stinky toddler's diaper. No poop! Then I remembered.. I fed her cabbage! They were so stinky, I decided to google cabbage farts and look at this gem I found :).
