Here's what was in the CSA share that I scored:
There's an eggplant hiding in the middle.

Here's what I need help in identifying:
1.I think I've had this in a salad. The flavor is familiar, but I just can't place it.

2. Same here - the flavor is salad-greeny, but no idea.

3. No idea:

This morning was picture day at Amelia's preschool. I was hoping to have a good night's sleep so I could be zen mommy while getting her dressed and coaxing her hair into a straight part. (Ladies, I have never had straight hair. I am learning this stuff on the fly!)

Katie woke up every 2 hours or so throughout the night, and was up for good at 4 A.M..  I turned on something (I hope it was child appropriate. Otherwise, porn is sounding a lot like the Higglytown Heroes.) and let her wander the bedroom while I fitfully dozed. She did not appreciate this. She pushed a full bin of Duplo blocks into my bedroom and proceeded to crash them together right next to my ear. EVIL.

Amelia woke up at her normal 6:15.  She crawled into bed next to me and talked nicely to me.  At 7, I jumped in the shower. Katie followed me into the bathroom and proceeded to scream at the shower door while I quickly cleaned up.

We finally got out of the house and dropped off Ms. A. Katie conked out in the car, and I overcame my urge to crank up some Ministry to keep her awake like she did me. ;)  I did manage to hit Joann's and Michael's to pick up various craft bits.  I'm the "Craft Mom" for the Halloween party at the preschool.  Whee?!

The rain picked up right as I hit the Spurill Green Market in Dunwoody. There was an extra CSA box available, so I grabbed it. I'm a little embarrassed to say that I don't recognize all of the produce I purchased. I know that I have basil, Swiss Chard, arugula, and radishes in there, but there is another bunch or two of greens that I just don't grok in their natural form. I may have to post pictures tomorrow morning and have you all help me!

Everyone got a good nap in this afternoon.  I was planning on trying to do stuff while the girls were asleep, but my body made it very clear to me that the best option was Sleep Now.

Tonight's gourmet meal was spaghetti with Prego Organic Tomato and Basil sauce. I'm so ashamed - I didn't even doctor it up.  I always doctor it!  However, the girls ate it happily, and Amelia asked for seconds. That's one of the few meals we've had since Tom was gone that the girls actually ate. (Spaghetti is one of their faves, so they're getting it more often than I would normally serve it.)

While I was collecting the garbage and changing cat litter boxes, my back twinged. I promptly stopped what I was doing and took medication. I don't mess around with back pain.

3 more sleeps until Tom will be back!
