Poppy had her first taste of jarred baby food on Wednesday. Like her mother, it appears that she doesn’t care for bananas. She tried to throw herself backward to avoid the banana puree, and she wouldn’t even eat her rice cereal for a few days after the Banana Incident.
That’s right: 36 things, and they’re all about me. I’ve never been tapped for a meme before (could it be that no one reads this site?), but I’ll take “I’m always interested in the answers of others” to be a mandate.
Oh, and Brook, Rachel and B? Consider yourselves tapped.

According to Cooking Light:
On New Year’s Day in Holland, the Dutch eat oliebollen, a donut-shaped fritter. The ring shape symbolizes “coming full circle” and is believed to bring good luck.
A quick googling lead me to Olliebollen.com, which produces “cool things for kids.” If by “cool” they mean “expensive,” they’re right on. If I had a spare Benjamin, though, I would definitely buy this. It’s no donut-shaped fritter, but it would look awfully cute on my girl.
Typical Dutch Stuff and the Carnegie Mellon University Dinner Co-op site both had recipes for olliebollen. I might give one a try on Sunday.
