Maybe it's because he watches too much "Go, Diego, Go!" but Boo is obsessed with what different animals like to eat. I keep bags of organic mixed greens in the fridge, with the intention of The Mister and me eating more veggies. Never in my wildest imagination did I think Boo would make the connection that we eat leaves "just like a giraffe does." He will eat them plain, in his hands, after digging them out of the bag. But I've introduced to him the idea that they are also good on a sandwich.
Here is a sandwich I made for Boo tonight, built exactly to his specifications.
We start with a lightly toasted bagel. It has to be toasted so it's warmed up, but not crispy. Spread on a thick layer of Trader Joe's tahini-free hummus. It must be tahini-free, due to the sesame allergy.
Put on some thinly-sliced red bell peppers. Sometimes orange peppers are acceptable, but never the yellow ones. Add a layer of greens, making sure at least half are baby spinach leaves.
And there you go. A delicious, crunchy, creamy sandwich made especially for Boo, although I've been known to steal a bite or two.
Just like a giraffe.
