Top Chef: Sweatpants

Oh, man. We have been pretty fancy up in here this week.

Apple-dressed lentils with new potatoes and crunchy salad

Red pear, blue cheese, and walnut pizza

Maple and mustard-glazed salmon with roasted brussels sprouts
Such refinement! Such class! You'd never guess how much spit-up I have caked in my hair. Or how often I stepped in PUDDLES OF IT while preparing these very elegant dishes. Or exactly HOW unwashed I am willing to let my hair become (so very, very unwashed).

Anna knows that the first rule of eating well is staying hydrated.

And slightly ornery.

And I'm not sure whether Ivy is jealous of all these delicious solid foods or just attempting to gnaw her way to freedom.

I do not blame her either way.
