We still tease her about that night.
Oh yikes, I can imagine!

My daughter just told me something she did when her youngest, Hannah, was (I think) around 9 months old. They were on their way to Las Vegas to see her in-laws. Hannah got fussy, and Nancy realized that she was hungry. She grabbed the container she had put cottage cheese in and gave Hannah a spoonful of it. Hannah spit it out and got really fussy. Nancy tried another spoonful and another, with the same results. She was determined to get Hannah to eat. Then she realized the cottage cheese looked kind of funny (they were in the car so it wasn't real light). She looked closer and smelled it. She was giving Hannah horseradish! Poor kid!

What a wonderful idea! I love it!

I'm good. Okay, Laurie I need your carrots recipe

I might add that the beans freeze well. I freeze them in portions in baggies and reheat on stovetop or microwave with a few drops of water added
