Eating Adventures- September week 1

Okay, so here’s my first weekly post about our Eating Adventures. Doing pretty good! The kids helped with dinner last Thursday and I also tried something new!

Here’s what the kids helped cook:

Spaghetti Hotdogs

Spaghetti Hotdogs

This is how we made them:

Spaghetti Hotdogs pre-boil

Dry spaghetti stuck through the hotdog slices before boiling.

They were proud of their work!

I didn’t get a picture of them actually poking the spaghetti through the hotdogs because I was busy helping (and keeping them from eating the hotdogs!). After the noodles were cooked they ate quite a bit, but didn’t like that the noodles were in the hotdogs. Lucas ripped them out himself, but Kyla wouldn’t eat them until N pulled them out for her.

That night I had a meeting at a restaurant and the person sitting next to me had a bowl of these:



I have always pushed them aside, assuming I would not like them because they are peppers. But keeping in mind my desire to try new things, I asked if I could try one. It was pretty yummy!

Now I need to think of what the kids will help me with this week!

  1. Pizza! My son LOVES helping make Pizza. He does everything. He helps kneed the dough, squish it on the pan, spread the sauce with a spoon, sprinkle cheese, and toss on toppings. It takes me a long time to actually get the pizza made but he loves it, and actually eats it!!!
