…and he’s not dead!

Over Easter the fiance ate food that would KILL him dead.

amazingly, he’s still alive, and it’s been a week.

What did he try?

(note my skeptical face)

Artichokes!

my parents make crazy good artichokes-they boil them with all sorts of delicious herbs and spices and whatnot and they taste super good

Plus we dip ’em in butter.

You can’t hate on things dipped in butter.

I’m not going to say they’re his new favorite food (he called them “mushy”.  He has serious texture issues) but he ate them, and he lived!

On Easter I also made possibly the best easter egg I’ve done

I am not a nugget.  PETA is proud of me right now I’m sure.

This weekend Baby Brother traveled from Surreal America to Portland to run is first 5k.

We’ve had soup

with bread

And the one healthy thing baby brother will always eat

(with ranch of course).

He also learned what “butter spread” was

he was skeptical…

I’m sure baby brother will post soon (RIGHT BABY BROTHER?) to tell you about his 5k.

It involved waking up at 6 am.  No hi.
