May 15th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

“Go start the old jalopy, boys!

and back it in real tight.

Grandma’s gonna be surprised

when she gets home tonight!”

Surprised, indeed.  It’ll be a wonder if Grandma doesn’t keel right over when she sees the gargantuan cake Grandpa has whipped up for her birthday. Read the rest of this entry »

The Seven Silly Eaters
May 13th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Now time went by as time will do;

And as it passed, the children grew.

The problem was that as they grew,

Their appetites kept growing, too!

Storybooks about picky eaters seem to be a dime a dozen, but there is no question that  The Seven Silly Eaters stands out in that crowd.  Instead of a tale of grumpy complaints, this rhyming story of a pack of wee food critics is upbeat and fun. Read the rest of this entry »

That silly guy!

I’m not sure that I can even begin to explain all of the things that make Thelonius Monster’s Sky-High Fly Pie a fantastic book, there are so very many of them, and they so defy simple description.  Read the rest of this entry »

Food for Thought
Feb 9th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Ingredients: oranges, kumquats, rhubarb, black-eyed peas, assorted broccoli, bell peppers, onions, carrots, portabella, enoki and white-button mushrooms, sesame seeds, mustard seeds, pink and green peppercorns, pink grapefruit, kiwifruits, . . . etc., etc.

As the ingredients for a single recipe, the above list is more than a little unappetizing. Unappetizing, that is, unless it’s a recipe for learning basic concepts in a hilarious, creative way. Read the rest of this entry »

What I Do With Vegetable Glue
Feb 5th, 2010 by Noodlenuts

Then what would we do?

Where would we buy

Some vegetable glue?

. . . and more importantly, what IS vegetable glue, and why on Earth would anyone need it?
