Each summer the boys are in charge of one dinner a week.
The only condition in choosing food is that it can’t be something they have already cooked this summer.
The boys enjoy cooking and have been pretty good about ensuring that there is either a fruit or salad with the meal. They have made sure to steer clear of any veggies on the menu.
Here’s what they have served:
Week 1:Alex: Grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup, grapes Andrew: Beef tacos and cantaloupe Week 2: Alex: Chicken patties on bun, fries, and strawberries Andrew: Cheese sticks as an appetizer 🙂 , 3 types of pizza (including mac n’cheese pizza), and blackberries & blueberries Week 3: Alex: Cheese raviolis with homemade red sauce, cheese bread, and salad Andrew: Homemade calzones with salad Week 4: Alex: Spaghetti, homemade red sauce, homemade meatballs, and salad Andrew: Hot dogs, chips, fruit, and yogurt
Maybe not all are the healthiest options but I want to make sure it’s their meal and not mine.
I’m hoping all of this cooking by them pays off so in a few years they will be doing all the summer cooking (insert evil cackle).
