Beloved Squash, Sneaky Turnips, and Gleeful Watermelon on MTM

After the Mad Banana incident last week I was a little nervous to see what would happen with Pierce's lunch this week.
Luckily, things were just fine.  Gleeful, in fact - just check out the Gleeful Watermelon! He also had roasted brussel sprouts with yellow squash.  Recently Pierce declared that his favorite food is no longer shrimp - that it's yellow squash.  Good thing we've got some growing in the garden!  He also had some pizza with mozzarella, feta, kalamata olives, and some sneaky turnip greens from the garden (I'm always sneaking them into things I make like quiche and omelets).

What do you think?
Doesn't Gleeful Watermelon look like he needs a guitar and a band?  Maybe a Melodic Melon and a Tambourine Man Turnip?

I think when your kids grow up and think back on their childhood, one thing they will always remember is their meals! :O)

Maybe Mr. Watermelon could use a a counseling session with Mommy to settle him down a little. :)
