Les Marchés au Puces - { The Market of the Fleas }

Much to my absolute delight, Bijou loves to eat!! There really wasn't an option for her to be a fuss pot when raised in a family whose conversations often revolve around making food, eating food, critiquing food, and so on and so on. From the day dot she has munched down anything and everything we've given her with much gusto and lip smacking. From olives and capers, to anchovies on pizza, gherkins and brie.


Raw mushrooms in the trolley on our weekly grocery shopping jaunt, the tartest of yogurts, Mexican salsas, curries! You name it...she eats it! Except for one thing...capsicum. And oddly enough, it is the only thing (and I mean the only thing) that Hubby doesn't eat. And believe it or not, his father won't eat it either! Is there some bizarre strand of capsicum aversion DNA passing down from generation to generation. Crazy!!


For this week's somewhat belated Flea Market Finds I wanted to show you one of mon petit poppet's other favourite pastimes (after eating!) and that's feeding others!! This weeny pink dolls' high chair was an absolute must have when spied in a little secondhand shop. Aren't those stickers just the sweetest?!

On tonight's menu is Spaghetti Bolognaise. "Is there capsicum in this honey?" says Hubby. "Of course not my love...I know how you loathe it". Wink wink

Oh thats funny.. Capsicum is one of my favourite foods.. I can't get enough!

My daughter will also eat anything. And her and her daddy both drink milk by the bucket load.. maybe it is in their DNA?

What a gorgeous find Steph!

Ours love raw capsicum (or pepper), but not the green one though!!x

Gorgeous highchair but I'm with your husband and Bijou on the capsicum front. Can't touch them. They are from the same plant family as deadly nightshade and we just don't get on. I've only just started allowing them in the house!

My two love capsicum - it is cucumber that I can not get them to eat (and I am talking all three of them - funny enough Tims Grandfather wont eat it either)

Love the little high chair - we have a green on here with a similar sticker and it as my Mum's

Beautiful chair, Steph, so very cute for little Poppet. I remember having drawers with those same stickers on when I was a wee thing.

Cute as Buttons said...

Me, too, Kathy! My Dad made us a toybox with shelves and Mum used the stickers to decorate and then to cover up damage...she still has some of them. My middle child is like Poppet. He is a gem at dinner time and makes up for the other two. The chair is lovely. Lisa x

OOOoooo me too I detest capsicum, too overpowering and takes over everything else ;( Love that cute chair! Hope you have a wonderful week.xo
