Girlie had asked for applesauce and when I was trying to decide where to put it in her EasyLunchBox, I had a fun idea. I decided to put the unsweetened applesauce in a silicon muffin cup, sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon sugar on top, and then freeze it! My logic is that it will help keep the rest of the food cool and will make it stay in the cup for transport. It won’t slosh around on its way to school and it should defrost by lunchtime. I hope. Will it taste funny? I am excited to hear Girlie’s report this afternoon! Here’s today’s lunch:
They have turkey and cheddar pinwheels, peanut butter filled pretzels, frozen applesauce, and strawberries mixed with orange segments. Little Dude has yogurt and I snuck some in some raisins. Girlie has broccoli and ranch dip and some carrots.
My girlie went to her very first cooking class at the township’s rec center last night. It was listed for ages 4 though 10, but she was clearly the youngest one there at 5 and a half. It was a 90 minute drop-off class in which they made 4 recipes together and then ate them in class. She brought home some leftovers too. The recipes were all very simple (a smoothie, grilled cheese, salad, and a pudding dessert) and she’s made them all before in some form or another, but the experience of doing it in a “cooking class” absolutely thrilled her. She came home and was very excited to tell us all about her night – and asked us to sign her up for more!
I’d love to sign her up for more (I already have one other session booked), and the acting classes she wants, karate class, and dance too. She already does gymnastics and I am wary of over scheduling her or any of us. I think one activity a week is enough for us right now. What do you think? How many activities are your kids doing each week?
