Grady's first spring break has been a mix of wonderful and annoying. Wonderful because we're not beholden to the school drop-off and pickup schedule. Annoying because it's a break in routine (which kids LOVE *eye roll*) and we all have colds and Poppy has reached peak honey badger with her latest Wonder Week combined with teething woes.
I'm attempting to get Grady more involved with meal prep this week because he's interested in cooking. It hasn't translated into him being more interested in eating new foods but we'll get there. One day. (I say breezily while I grit my teeth and clean up the latest kitchen tornado that is cooking with Grady.
Monday: Tomato Chickpea "No Bits" Sauce over spaghetti noodles for Grady, Tomato Chickpea Sauce over roasted veggies for the grownups. Grady will chop the veggies for the sauce and help me make garlic bread.
Tuesday: Beef Barley Soup served with green salad. There's no way Grady will touch this meal either prep-wise (he's seriously squicked out by meat and he has shown no interest in using the stove) or eating so he'll have Kid Dinner (cheese slices, cucumber, carrots, strawberries, and plain noodles).
Wednesday: BBQ, Avocado, Bacon, and Cheddar Chicken served with green salad. Grady will help stack the ingredients after the chicken is cooked.
Thursday: Grilled flank steak tacos served with fresh guacamole and salsa. Grady will make the guacamole.
Friday: Leftovers? Pizza? Cereal? Don't know, don't care.
What's on your meal plan this week?
