Did You Know Caterpillars Eat Spinach?

April 20, 2015

That’s what Lila told me right before taking a big bite of raw spinach last night:

…from this strawberry, feta, and grilled chicken salad that we threw together.

She and her classmates have been “growing” butterflies at school, watching them go from caterpillars to a chrysalis to butterflies.  She’s been so excited to talk about them every day—they released a few of the butterflies last week.  Apparently it’s also exciting enough to get her to eat spinach “just like the caterpillars do!” 

Hey, I’ll take it.

Ryan and I enjoyed the salad too:

Tastes like…spring!  It’s looking sunny this morning and it’s my last day of Monday classes— gonna be a good one!

    That looks so good! I love spinach + strawberries together. I favor blue cheese over feta, but I don’t discriminate against any soft cheese. I also like to add dried cranberries, walnuts, and avocado.

    Looks so good! I love the reasons kids have for eating and not eating certain foods. Too funny
