Through the Eye of a Noodle...

...many journeys will surely be made.

With my own childhood wheat sensitivity lurking, I am not a big fan of using wheat. Still, R and Z love their pasta.

And more fun than anything is to eat it stuffed. In this case, I made a filling with tofu and seasonings (sea salt, oregano, thyme), added some chopped spinach, and he was off.

I sat by with my lips sealed as he tried to fill them. It didn't take him too long to figure out that the filling was going in one end and out the other. hee hee. His solution: to hold one end closed while filling from the other. Once he found a way, I then shared that I fill them sideways. He said, "That's cause you do things sideways, Mom, and I go straight from the top."

Well said, my boy. How great that we are all so beautifully different...

Tends to call it like he sees it, this kid.
I admit to being "sideways" now and again. :)
