It’s gotten to the point where my son will ask, “What is it?” if I don’t turn his meal into a face or a construction vehicle.
It only takes an extra few seconds to whip up something creative, and it’s a nice break from my rushing around. He sure does chow down more when the food is fun. This morning’s Jackson Pollock-esque scrambled egg breakfast was proclaimed to be “too much food!” Maybe it was, or maybe it was just not cool-looking enough. But last night’s dinner was cleaned up!
Its components: (all organic): local chicken thigh, home grown fresh peas, local broccoli cooked in homemade chicken stock, non-local red pepper, local red pepper, Romaine lettuce (but we do have green leaf in the garden I’ll use tonight!),. tomato (I think local but not sure how – from South Mountain Veggie) and local sauerkraut from my Amish farmer.
