Tomorrow is going to be a busy night for us - we have our simplest meal planned that Ed will make while I'm away. When you're parenting single handed, a simple evening meal is essential, don't you agree?
The reason we're so busy is that I'm teaching that evening at a local food event. I'm excited to talk about one of my favourite topics: Cooking with Kids! I'm a little nervous. Not about the speaking so much, I do it often. I'm worried that I'm going to speak a kilometre a minute (- isn't that what we Canadians should say?). The reason: I have so much to share and only a half hour to do it in! I'll try and do the topic justice in such a short time.
I strongly believe it's important that we give our kids skills in the kitchen and show them that cooking can be fun. I'll be back here on the blog later this week to share some of our tips and tricks for cooking with kids (without losing your cool)!
What's on our Menu this week:
Kids Pizza Chefs
Breakfast for dinner (so helpful for a busy night!): French Toast with Peach Sauce
Simple Sweet and Sour Meatballs with Rice
Easy Chicken Fingers, Corn, Kid's Choice Vegetable TBD
Bean Burritos with peppers and Easiest Guacamole Ever
I'm trying a new recipe! I'll adapt it like crazy to fit our tastes and make it a wee bit less salty/cheesy (my son hates melted cheese - the little weirdo.) I'm starting with this basic recipe:
Roasted Pork Tenderloin (recipe coming soon!), Broccoli with 5 Minute Bread.
This week's Lunch Box Baking:
Best Ever Chocolate Cookies
I'll be linking up to Menu Plan Monday at OrgJunkie.com. Check out this weekly link-up for many, many more menu plan ideas!
What's your favourite thing to cook with your kids?
