Yesterday, when Leo complained, again, about being bored to death, I explained how busy I am, since he and his brother are home every day now, and my mom and nephew are visiting from Israel. I asked him to do me a favor and help me write for my blog. Leo is nine years old. Enjoy his post!
I’m Leo. Next time I should whisper how bored I am.
I told my mom I don’t really know how to write about food, but she said I can write about my summer break and my favorite food. OK.
So far my summer break is the most boring summer break ever. Everybody is going to camp, but I hate camps. I would like to go to fun places like Lego Land or Sea World, but because my mom hates those places, I’m forced to go to LACMA or to hike somewhere we can never find interesting bugs or snakes. We also go the library and Barnes & Noble, which I like but I’m already sick of. I thought it would be fun with my cousin Benben, but it’s totally the oposite, it’s a nightmare! He complains and bitches about EVERYTHING!
Alex doesn’t have a summer break but he refuses to go to his pre-school. He told my mom if she makes him go he would kill her, so my mom takes him seriously and let him stay home with us.
Benben, who loves to complain about everything, complains about Alex all day long!!! My mom said I should mention the good things too. What good things? Anyway, here is the list of good things to eat, my favorites.
Pomegranate. Sour food is the best!
Alex’s chocolate chip cookies. I don’t like my brother very much, but I love his cookies. He is only five and annoying but he makes the best chocolate chip cookies. Seriously!
Apricot Jam. With peanut butter or butter.
Saba Zion’s Salad. (Fennel, kohlrabi & radish with lots of lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt & fresh ground pepper.)
Banana & Raspberry Smoothie. Horrible picture but my mom insisted.
Leafy Salad. Most of the time I’m an herbivore.
PIZZA! The best food in the world!!
Cucumber, Tomato & Onion Salad. In israel we eat this salad for breakfast. In America we eat it for dinner, too.
Potato Chips. (Potatoes baked in olive oil, sea salt & pepper) – with ketchup.
Toast with avocado, olive oil & hot paprika. Loooove spicy food.
My Mom’s Burgers. (Ground beef with onion & oregano, or any other herb, and some paprika.)
Mango Tango. (With chili powder and lime.) That’s how they eat mango in Mexico.
