Syntax and quick bread
Bun Bun’s syntactic complexity is increasing every day, which is such a joy for her linguist mama. She’s been doing prepositional phrases (Noun + preposition, like in on under etc.) for a while, as well as conjunction (X and Y), but today she produced a conjoined subject, and it was just so charming I had to document it: Wombat and [Bun Bun] in boat.
I know. My kid did the most amazing thing = boring to everyone else on earth.
Meanwhile, I want to request some assistance from my Cookin’ Friends. We like to eat carrot-ginger soup. It’s smooth and creamy, tangy and delicious. But we rarely make it because it needs some kind of accompaniment, most likely in the form of bread. Even better would be bread that has protein in it, like cheese or egg. And since I have about 45 minutes to make dinner, it needs to be a quick bread (like biscuits) or at least something where the dough can be done in the morning and ignored until 5pm. Thoughts? I don’t have one of those magical palates that tells me what would be the perfect flavor combination for this soup…
