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.
