Day 8: You'd think I never feed them...


The meal:  Oatmeal with dried cranberries, dried apples and almonds, fresh pineapple, milk, dry cereal

What they ate:
I made 2 servings of the oatmeal.  Big R ate 1 ½ and Little A ate the other ½ serving.  Both ate large amounts of pineapple and drank their milk, and both asked for cereal after their “first breakfast” was gone.


The meal:  PB&J sandwiches, clementines

What they ate:  Both ate every bite of the PB&J, crusts and all.  Big R had 2 clementines and Little A ate one, chopped up.

The meal:  Stir-fry w/ carrots, peppers, pineapple, and pan-fried tofu cubes; homemade sweet & sour sauce; jasmine rice; milk.  Small scoop of vanilla ice cream after dinner.

What they ate: EVERYTHING!  They both ate everything!  I made the stir-fry plain and served the sweet & sour sauce on the side.  Little A didn’t try his sauce, but Big R loved it.  They both ate the veggies, pineapple, tofu and rice.

My notes: Wow, what a great meal.  Easy to make, loved by all.  Not a leftover bite in sight for anyone.  Big R said he likes this dinner more than pizza.  But he may still have pizza fatigue from earlier in the week...

Snacks:  Teddy grahams for both.    

Daily thoughts:  I had some hungry boys today!  Stir-fry seems like a great way to expand their tastes in veggies a bit.  I think the crisp-tender texture of stir-fried vegetables is appealing, and you can mix familiar, favorite vegetables with some new ones.
