Putumayo Kids released this CD this summer and we've been listening to it none stop! I received this CD to review and gave it to Enzo, because ultimately he makes the decision whether a kids product is cool or not. He thinks it's very cool. So much so that I catch him singing phrases like, "I like to eat like a rainbow" and I'm all like "YES! please eat your green broccoli and your red beets" and he does. O.K maybe he still doesn't but... the songs are very cool and even if he's still not eating like a rainbow we're definitely grooving in the kitchen. You can listen to bits of all the songs here.
Check out video below for a taste.

My friend had the decency to labor in her kitchen, make picked onions, and give me a jar. I've been using it every chance I get. yesterday I made some lentil-bulgar salad and added the pickled onions for a little sweet taste and I was very happy with the results. I recently made some red onion vinaigrette that also came out delish but totally ugly for a photo shoot. The red pickled onions are much prettier.
Here are a couple recipe for pickled onions.
