recipe of the day

Wee Small does not have a teddy bear, or a doll. She does not want one. Wee Small has a Manatee. He is very round and very cuddly and his name is Manatee.

Manatees graze on sea grass.
Being on tummy mountain we do not have sea grass readily available, yet Wee Small has solved this problem.

Ah, I recognise this basic recipe :-) It has many variations - oh, there are so many different ingredients that can be got on clothes and floor and ceiling and left in a trail through the house! My personal favourite was the porridge oats recipe for The Three (Teddy) Bears....

Ah yes, favourite recipes... we had Daisy salad. The yellow middles make such lovely, lasting stains on your clothes. And of course the pet you make it for can't always finish their portion, so you can trail it back outside for the snails in the garden.

Manatee is a very handsome chap. I can see why a teddy or doll is quite unnecessary.

Ideally as little of the recipe as possible ends up in the bowl. I particularly like the moment when the little one looks down at their clothes and realise that they are covered in food. They just stand there silently for five seconds, maybe up to ten seconds, before they then "solve" the problem themselves.

(Manatee is one of my favourites!)

Reminds me of the song Larry sings on Silly Songs with Larry (Veggie Tales)--Barbara Manatee! You are the one for me! My little guys crack up at that song--you should go watch it on YouTube! :)
