    Too cool. I think I love all the same snacks as you – well I could live without the spaghetti-os but they’re okay. Ah- haha moon boots. I still have some for the winter. Well, they kinda look like them, anyway. Oh, these were fun to read. Thanks for playing!

    Spaghettios? They’re terrific… warm or cold! 🙂

  • 3. teeni  |  July 29, 2007 at 6:41 pm

    LOL. To each his (or her) own. I used to love spaghettios but I outgrew them because the sauce seemed too sweet once I started eating Chef Boyardee Raviolis – then the raviolis became my favorite and beefaroni. Gawd – I bet there’s all kinds of gross stuff in those but I did love them. 😉

  • 4. lmdalton  |  July 29, 2007 at 8:26 pm

    Haaa…I forgot about beefaroni! I rarely buy it now, but when my husband was out of town I picked up a can of Spaghettios to share with my son…like it was going to be some sort of special treat. He didn’t really like it, go figure. This is a kid who likes broccoli, hummus, and sushi. Needless to say my diet has change for the better since he’s been around!

  • 5. teeni  |  July 29, 2007 at 9:20 pm

    Glad to hear that your diet has improved! I’m relatively new to eating healthy in the past year or two myself so I can’t pick on you too much for that. But that is great that your son is a good eater! You are giving him a good head start! YAY! Funny thing though – my great niece is four now and her mom got some of the organic version of spaghettios to try and she didn’t like them. So what I get from this is that more kids probably would eat a lot healthier than all that processed crap if they were given the option early. Oops – sorry – didn’t mean to blab so much on your comment page. Got carried away. LOL

    I think you’re right on the food. Kids also eat whatever they see their parents eating…so, yes, i’ve significantly changed my ways. 🙂
