Beaded spoon, Vincent goes to the supermarket, kids in the garden and comfort food

Bead spoon

If you are looking for a gift for a new baby a personalised spoon from Beaded Things might be just the thing. “Hand sculpted wire transforms this spoon into a one of a kind gift… this 5.5 inch stainless steel spoon is both functional and a true keepsake… Your choice of any 8 letters.”

Fun things to do with your little kid in the supermarket – take his photo over and again and then make a flickr set! These photos of a little boy named Vincent are wonderful. (via Swissmiss)

Healthy Kids gardening (home of multiple pop-up ads — just to warn you) has a slide show which will give you some tips for ways to get your kids into the garden and involved and enthused about gardening.

Comfort Mac

It’s moving into a chilly winter here and we are fighting off colds and ear infections and all sort of other nasties. I am craving comfort food — has a page of Comfort Banquet recipes which I have just printed out ready to stick in my recipe book. Columnist Joe LoCicero includes Creamy Southern Style Mac & Cheese (above) and Green Bean Casserole – the Chocolate River Pie also looks pretty delicious. Yesterday I made this delicious Recuperation Soup from Esurientes which was easy and really delicious.

    love the baby spoon… i am going to put an order in for two spoons for some additions to the family.

    The spoon is adorable but I’d worry about the beads coming loose and becoming a choking hazard. Perhaps not one for little hands to use on their own?

    The beads are actually attached with a single piece of thick wire that’s wound around the spoon many many times and firmly attached at both ends. I think you’d need to be very keen and also have a pair of pliers on hand in order to get the beads off.
