Sprout Mania

The other day at the grocery store we were wandering through the produce department and it occurred to me that my kids probably have never tried sprouts on their sandwiches. When I was little, sprouts were my favorite part of eating a sandwich. I let Gus put them in the cart and he begged to open the container. When we got home, I explained what they were and suddenly, both boys had a mouthfull and a big grin. The entire carton soon disappeared.
"They look like worms, Mom," exclaimed Gus.
We're going to add "grow sprouts" to our summer activity list. Anyone want to join us?

Yum! He looks like a sea creature! How are you going to grow them. I just may be able to handle sprouts with my minimally green thumb.

So fun! I haven't had sprouts in forever. I started avoiding them while pregnant... Time to indulge again I think!
