This week I wanted to use a children's book as our theme, so we read Bread and Jam For Frances this morning and made a big list of all the foods they talked about in the book. We found:
- bread and jam
- veal cutlet
- baked potatoes
- orange juice
- cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches
- spaghetti and meatballs
- tomato soup
- black olives
- vanilla pudding
With six kids around the table, I took three muffin tins and filled six cups each. It works out well to have the oldest and youngest share, then the next, then the two middle kids. They can help each other, and it also happens to be a picky eater and a good eater in each team.
Duchess and O'Malley shared a tin,
Snow White and Sebastian shared another,
and Marie and Ariel shared another.
We ate tomato soup, black grapes, tangerines, bread and jam, green beans, and cheddar cheese since I didn't have any eggs and we needed some protein.
Everyone had a great time and actually ate something. Next week is supposed to be a Halloween theme, and I may do something original if I can think of it. If not, I'll go through the muffin tin archives and borrow a good idea. :)
We all need a reason to look forward to Monday!
