I may have created a monster

If you remember, our green day dinner was a fun success. And I was stoked because I have wanted to do that with Andrew since before he was a glimmer. 

But now he thinks all of our dinners should be color themed. 

Yesterday was purple dinner because he saw saw a purple cabbage and exclaimed adorably while we were in the grocery store "look mommy, for purple dinner." I couldn't resist and we hunted down more purple- red onion and eggplant- which was perfect for stir fry. 

Extra credit I made the rice with a few cabbage leaves and it came out a pale violet. 

I can't imagine we'll be able to do blue day without busting out the food coloring. 

I'm trying to help him understand that this is a once in a while thing and not every meal needs a theme. But he is so persuasive with his cuteness.

Awesome!!!! Nice job Amber! Those 2 are sooooo cute...

Is that a look of adoration on her little face or what?! She is in love with her big brother.

I'm brainstorming color dinners now. Yellow seems easy! Maybe orange, too. (When I was a kid, I would eat those orange crackers with peanut butter with a side of nacho cheese Doritos and get excited about my very orange lunch. Probably should have added some carrot sticks to that...)

While I'm on a roll, here's a link to Food & Wine's Eat by Color series:
