10 of Sunday’s minutes

Happy Birthday to my sister, Keren! Woo-hoo!!

One of the signs of Spring is the scratch-scratch-scratching of Lloyd eating a can of frozen fruit cocktail. It’s been his treat of choice since …… forever, and I think it’s pretty funny because the energy he exerts scraping outweighs the calories in the fruit. It’s like a diet snack.

Well, no more.

Lauren: “Hey, is there another can?”

Lloyd: warily “Yes.”

Lauren: over her shoulder running to the basement “Cool. I gotta go get something.”

Shave and a can of fruit - six bits.

Using the patented tomato paste method.

Note the hastily wiped-off counter.

I got it at a thrift store.

A tasty treat that's good to eat.

I actually wound up smashing a fair amount of the fruit, but the shaved fruit was pronounced delicious and effort-free by Lloyd.

    Now you just need to get a monkey and train it to run the ice shaver crank and you’ll be set!

    And by the way, most of my Sunday minutes were spent watching college basketball. Kansas Jayhawks all the way, baby!

    Mmmm-mmmmmmm…..I must try this at once!

    And would this be tasty with canned vegetables? I’m having a little gag reaction just typing it, so probably not.

    Did anybody else notice that Brad’s gravatar and Lauren’s dad’s gravatar look eerily similar?
