It's always the nevers that get you.
I said I'd never give my children candy...
that lasted until the oldest was able to have lollipops.
I said I'd never blog...
well, you can see how that one ended.
The best and most current is
I said I'll never write about what we eat for lunch.
However, as with all 'nevers' I should know by now...
they never last!
This week The HomeSchool Village is asking readers to link-up with lunch ideas. Specifically, to discuss how do you get out of the sandwich and soup rut? Well, I suppose we are riding in the one wheel rut as I never thought to add soup to the daily menu. Our daily sandwiches do at times, result in boredom for the children. I've tried varying the types of sandwiches: one day peanut butter and jelly, another day peanut butter and honey, another day cheese, and so on. Then, the pleading for no more sandwiches began. Can't we have something else?
My dear children, yes, you can!
That's when we started taking a day off from sandwiches every once in awhile. These are the days I hard boil some eggs and make muffins. The eggs and muffins are served with fruit and cheese. This offers our children a relatively healthful meal and the variety they desire. Well, healthful until the candy is served for dessert!
