So McKenzie is now of an age when I feel she should start to learn to make meals. She can bake cookies but they are not going to be much good to here when she is hungry for an evening meal and out in the world fending for herself. She is not learning food technology at school so it is up to me.
So when we got home from camping I decided we would start with a meal that was very versatile.....mince. So under my direction for the meat and by herself for the rest here was our meal that night........mince (with the hidden vege in it, new potatoes and garden salad.
So she will have another go when school has got underway and I think she should have a try at meatloaf. Hmmm what do you think?
Oh my, it has been three weeks since I have written on my blog. It seems like longer. But now that I have been on holiday and taken time to refresh myself I am ready to get back to life, you know the one that has me rushing around everywhere.
(This is my view as I sat on the sand under our shade while on holiday. In the distance you can just see White Island smoking (thats that white in the sky that looks like cloud). I have a book in hand and my children happily playing as you do while at the beach.)
The school year is starting tomorrow and I am more ready than usual to get up and going. One one child will starting and the other two will take the next week to get started. So tonight One lunch box is sitting in the fridge ready to go. The alarm clock is set and school bag with stationery ready to go.
Now menu planning is necessary and will help keep me sane. So here is this weeks plan.
