I took Ethan to his annual well visit today and received the confirmation that he is now officially the same size as me… at the ripe old age of 12. He is 5’5 3/4″ (I’m 5’6″). His weight is… well, we won’t go there. Suffice to say that we have about 1/2 pound difference, and I’ll leave you to guess which one is heavier! I’m still trying to those last 10 pounds off, so it’s a matter of days before he passes me out.
I love that he’s growing so big and tall, but I’m a little sad that my baby is gone. I know he’ll always be my baby, but still, it’s all going too fast. The good news is he passed his exam with flying colors. He bragged about how juicing has improved his health this past year and how he had zero sick days. Definitely something we’re proud of.
Day two with the new juicer went a little better. I used it for both wheat grass and spinach today. I did order my first wheat grass growing kit tonight. There were a few options, but I selected a smaller, less expensive kit to get started. In case it doesn’t go well for me, I didn’t want a huge investment in it. Here’s the link to the one I ordered:
I tried the Coconut Curry Rice recipe in “The China Study Cookbook”. Everyone enjoyed it, and it was pretty easy to make. It took a little longer to cook (closer to 45 minutes) than the book said (30-35) but it was worth the wait.
