>The Pram is Here!

>So, this is my new pram:

The Joovy Caboose Stand-on Tandem. And I must say, I’m really impressed. I’m a crazy person who saw this pram on the internet and thought it was really cool. I liked that I could put a capsule on it and I liked the concept of the older child being able to sit or stand on it, giving both you and them more freedom. I had no idea how big it was. I heard that it was compact. (I have a Toyota Corolla Hatch back so I hoped the reports where true). I heard that despite what it says on the website, the older child CAN sit while the capsule is in place.

So the first photo is to show you that it IS compact. Actually, all the photos show that. But this is as narrow as a capsule. No joke. It’s narrower than my normal pram! Middle photo is with the capsule in place and Dex sit/standing on the seat/platform. And last photo is to show you just how little the pram actually is.

Things that impressed me that I didn’t even know about? The front seat folds all the way back into a laying position (they need to update the website) and there is a 5 point harness for the child sitting on the toddler seat if you wish. AND it only cost me $360 including the caspule attachment. I think that’s pretty darn impressive. (and no, I’m not getting paid for this advertising… I should be though!)

The other thing I want to show you is this:

I’m not sure if it looks as impressive as it tastes, but it tastes REALLY good. It is also fairly cheap to make. So, recipe time.

Garlic Buttered Roast Pumpkin and Bacon Pasta.
(very descriptive title)

1/2 Butternut pumpkin – small cubes
3 rashers bacon – diced
TBSP (?) Butter/margarine
tsp (?) minced garlic.
Pasta
Prehead oven to 180 degrees celcius
Melt butter, add garlic.
Put pumpkin in to an oven safe dish. Drizzle butter all over and mix well so all pumpkin is covered.
Chuck it in the oven. Took me about 45 minutes to cook it.
About half way through (so 20 minutes-ish) Add bacon.
Stir around a couple of times throughout cooking time to make sure everything is garlic-ed and buttered.
Cook your desired amount of pasta (I used fettucine)
When pumpkin and bacon is cooked (pumpkin should be tender but not mushy) add pasta to the dish and mix everything together so pasta gets garlic buttered too.

Serve and enjoy =]
