C J’S FAVORITE DINNER
CJ Frank Van Moorleghem
This recipe is not recommended for anyone over 2 years old
- Have mom prepare plate of spaghetti (the more sauce, the better)
- When mom gives you utensil, throw on the floor (you must not use fork, only hands)
- Pick up hand full of spaghetti and shove in mouth, making sure half of it falls in your lap.
- Obviously some sauce and spaghetti will be left on your hands. Your options are:
– Shake hands, so sauce and spaghetti splatters on floor, walls, table, mom, dad, dog, baby sister, or
anything else in range.
– Smear on face starting at the mouth area, up towards the cheek, and ending in your hair and rub all over.
(especially fun if you just had a bath)
– Rub eyes and ears.
– Try to grab mom’s arm and rub! (this one’s especially effective if mom is wearing a white blouse).
-Touch any and every part of high chair; under the tray, your seat, below your seat, behind the chair,
the spindles, anywhere you can possibly reach.
– If mom is holding baby sister, rub sister’s head when mom’s not looking.
- Make sure you play in your plate of spaghetti letting it hang off your plate and the tray.
- It’s important to have a smile on your face at all times, and enjoy this dinner thoroughly.
- Last but not least, tell mom to take a picture.

LITTLE APPLE PIES
When Mom makes apple pie, she always lets me have the
extra dough. I flour the board and roll out the dough.
I ask Mom to peel another apple or sometimes there is
leftover filling from something else in the refrigerator.
I cut the dough into squares and put in the apples. Then I
fold the dough around them and put them on a cookie sheet.
Mom sets the timer and sometimes lets me put them in the
oven, but she always takes them out because the cookie
sheet is too hot. My dad loves these! I put them on a
plate at night and he must eat all of them for breakfast,
because when I get up in the morning, the plate is empty.
