It’s always so interesting to see the things A is into as she gets older. When we finally started allowing her to watch some TV, it was always Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. We actually don’t have cable, but we’re able to access the Mickey episodes through the Disney Junior app on our Apple TV as well as through youtube.
A was immediately hooked to all things Mickey from the moment we showed it to her. She loves all the characters but has a particular soft spot for the main mouse himself. It is ALL about Mickey.
Now that she’s a bit older, she’s also able to sit through movies. Her favorite is definitely Cinderella. When I was her age Cinderella was totally my favorite too and stayed that way until it was usurped by Beauty and the Beast when that came out.
A would watch Cinderella every day if we allowed it. She also enjoyed Frozen, though I think it is mostly due to the peer pressure of all the little girls in her Daycare class talking about it (the “Big Snowman” scared her). Interestingly, she didn’t really enjoy Tangled and whenever I’d offer that up as an option, she’ll turn it down flat.
My favorite find was the older Mickey cartoons that are currently on Netflix- not only the color ones that we grew up with but also the super old black and white ones! I cannot tell you how thrilled I was that she enjoyed those (and that she’s finally starting to not ask to watch Christmas Mickey- we’re beyond ready to be done with Christmas!).
Lately, she’s also talked about Paw Patrol. So we downloaded a couple episodes of that. I think this is also a result of the chatter at Daycare and it’s beginning to rival Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Her favorite character in this is Chase. The fact that she tends to gravitate towards the Alpha characters in these shows does not escape me.
It’s so interesting to see how she is now forming opinions in things. I mean it was bound to happen sometime, but it still fascinates me. It’s the little things you don’t think about before you have kids. They really are little humans! I can’t be the only parent who is astounded by the fact that I created two small humans!
On a completely unrelated note, we have a bar here in Rochester called Windjammers. It’s in a part of town called Charlotte (pronounces Sh-are-lot- with are sounding like the word are and the lot sounding like the word lot- which always baffles the non-Rochestarians!). This area is right on Lake Ontario.
There is lots to love about Windjammers. The dollar beer shelf. Their absolutely killer wings. And their Salami Chips.
This was a discovery that came to light when we had a work outing that involved enjoying a beverage and some appetizers on the perfect summer afternoon in their outdoor seating area. When the salami chips came out, I was pretty surprised to see them. I didn’t know this was a thing- but I certainly wasn’t sad about it!
So this weekend, three years later, I finally got my act together and made some. I don’t know what took me so long because the were so insanely easy! It’s seriously as simple as laying them out on a pan and baking them until crisp. And if you have approximately a minute and thirty seconds to spare, you can whisk together some honey and mustard to make the awesome dipping sauce.
They have the perfect amount of crispiness and that salty flavor that we all crave once in a while. And the sweetness of the honey mustard sauce adds the perfect amount of balance to this snack.
Let me put it to you this way: even though basketball is not my thing, I would happily sit through the upcoming March Madness games if it means I got to munch on these the whole time (and don’t get me started about how great these are for football season!)! Bottom Line: make them. You’ll be glad you did!
