Belle and I honored the Blue Moon with spicy cauliflower saute over rice. Cauliflower is associated with the Moon. Of course Belle didn't eat any. She handed me a package of vermicelli noodles and waited impatiently until I opened them. Since I was already at the stove, I recovered most of the dry noodles from the floor and boiled them. Belle happily ate cool, unsalted noodles while I ate my warmly spiced dinner. When she proudly piled her bland noodles atop my food, I just mixed them in with mine before sneaking off to grab more seasoning.
Belle ate nearly an entire package of vermicelli noodles. She handed me a jar of sweet potatoes to open for her afterwards. My experiment worked! I removed every jar of fruit from Belle's cabinet and replaced them with vegetables. Belle seemed stumped a moment but still found something that looked appealing. She handed me a jar of sweet potatoes and I handed her a spoon. Belle uttered an "Mmm." She had stopped eating vegetables when the fruit proved a distraction. Last night she actually enjoyed eating a vegetable, which pleased me.
