BUTTERFLIES FOR THE BIG BOY
This is Adeypoo! He’s my best friend’s son. He’s almost three years old now! We are are like kindred spirits. It’s pretty comical; he loves snacking on everything, he wakes up hungry and confused, looking for food, he freaks out about the tiniest booboos in life, and he needs constant love and attention all throughout the day. Just like me! haha My twin! He came to visit me in Boston. He drove all the way up in a car for 4 whole hours with his mama just to say hello and spend a couple nights with me in the studio. I made sure to keep him occupied, because I understood EXACTLY what he’d feel like if I didn’t. I made them both Banana Cinnamon Waffles, and it just so happened to be #nationalwaffleday. I think I was just nicely aligned with the universe because what are the chances of that.
When it was time to go to the Museum of Science, I baked off some homemade Cheez-it’s made with fresh grated cheddar and whole wheat flour, and packed it in a little tupperware so he could snack on it throughout the his visit.
His little chubby hands couldn’t keep away! <3 I felt good about feeding them to him, because there was nothing artificial about these crackers. And the cracker dough kept in the refrigerator, so I’d pull it out, chunk off a piece, roll it out, punch out whatever shape he wanted, and baked them off as he wanted, because they’re spectacular right out of the oven. They’re easy to store both post and pre-baking, so I love that for my own comfort.
