Why Buy Organic?

I went through a faze when I first started feeding Link solids where I was researching food a lot.  I did a sloppy job of it, but I got some decent information and went with it because it sounded reasonable.  Generally I tried to buy organic, and limit sugar and artificial stuff.  The problem with that is that a year later, I couldn't think of any good arguments for buying organic when my grocery bill was seriously over budget.

Then I watched this video and about fell out of my chair.  Then I read this post and laughed a little.  Then I read a bunch more and decided I needed to figure out how I could spend more wisely to make it work.

Why do I have such a hard time thinking of things to make for lunch?  Seriously, PB&J has got to get old sometime; then what will I feed Link?!  I do not like spending 2 hours making a gourmet lunch, but if I could think of anything he'd eat, I'd do it!  All the recipes I find online are too complicated and more than likely he won't eat them.  Who likes broccoli and chicken nuggets anyways?  Last time I tried to feed him a chicken nugget, he said "that's a hash brown" and could not be persuaded otherwise.  He eats chicken fingers occasionally, spaghetti, plain meatballs, PB&J of course, and cucumbers.  Sometimes he eats quesadillas.   Anything else is hit-or-miss.  He used to eat fresh green beans and asparagus, frozen peas, and carrots. He won't touch any of those now.  I envy moms who can whip up healthy meals for their kids and actually get them to eat.  I feel lazy when all I can ever get Link to eat at lunch is PB&J.

Taking a Blog Break

I'm taking a break from blogging for a while because we have too much going on right now.  I just bought most of the shelving I need to get started on a school space and now we're looking for houses.  House hunting is sinking a good bit of time.  We're also traveling a lot.  I also don't have my laptop because I loaned it out.  So, I will be back in a few months once I have my computer back and things settle down a bit.
