  1. Thanks everyone! I will freely admit to being raised in a house where the only seasonings were salt, pepper, and celery salt. Onions and garlic weren't ever an option. I didn't start learning to cook until my early/mid-thirties. I'm also one of those people who find cilantro tastes and smells like soap. Ugh. I roasted everything (minus cilantro) with some onion and garlic, blitzed it in the blender with tomatoes, lime, salt, and the cilantro, and have put it aside for Thursday night's grilled chicken dinner. My husband will love it. My SIL said my house smelled like tacos, so that i
  2. Yes! I do this, too. Bananas, frozen berries, cut apples, whole fat greek yogurt, whole milk. I've been known to throw in some shredded kale, if no one is looking... Yup. This makes it so much worse. OP, I could have written your post about my own DS11. From getting pickier, to wanting more junk, to behavior issues when he's hungry. I also *hate* it when he makes his own, because he makes such a mess! But, I have to remember that it is good for him. We have set aside days where we make individual pizzas (homemade dough or french breads from the market), sauce and cheese. We
  3. I'm going through a version of this right now. About 75% of the freshmen class at my uni is required to take a basic algebra class (problem solving, linear equations, functions, basic stats, etc). Because there are so many sections (and so many instructors) of the course, we use a an online content & homework management system to standardize the material as much as possible, and we start using it in week #4 in my class. They were told in our zoom meetings in weeks #1, 2, &3, and reminded again by email blast yesterday, that they need to sign up for the system. I will see my two se
  4. Correction: the farmer's website says aji dulce peppers and husk cherry tomatoes.
  5. I think the green stuff is cilantro, the red things are peppers, the husked things are tomatillos, maybe?
  6. I came to recommend everything that Ktgrok did. I had an ear infection when I was pregnant with DS3 and I couldn't take anything good and I honestly wished for death for a few days. It was horrible. I ended up with drops that went directly into my ears (so the meds weren't systemic). I wouldn't wish that pain on anyone! (FWIW, I had temporary hearing loss in that ear for +/-6 weeks, which was really disorienting because I have extraordinarily acute hearing normally.)
  7. In my experience, the pay differential is due to public school teachers needing to be certified and holding an advanced degree, and the Catholic school teachers needing to merely be Catholic. 🤷
  8. Thank you! Looks like I'll be headed to Whole Foods this weekend to read labels.
  9. DS11 can swallow pills, no problem. I guess it seems like a lot to me (for vitamins) because DS24 has been taking a handful of meds day/night since he was small. Started with asthma and allergy meds, then seizure meds when he hit middle school. I hate pills. To this day, just the sound of the bottles makes me twitchy. But, we do what we have to, to keep them healthy! Thanks for the help.
