To reinforce the idea of helping out, I keep reminding my children that to this day, my parents have gotten along perfectly fine without a mechanical dishwasher; Dishwashing is what my sisters and I were for.
With thanks (in advance) for my children, here is what's cooking this week.
Leftovers roulette pasta with chicken, roasted tomatoes, broccoli and hot pepper flakes. The last of the Costco chicken and roasted tomatoes, plus an errant head of broccoli, cut into florets by the children.
"Sausage Stir-Fry" Chicken-apple sausages stir-fried with onions and peppers. Slice sausages, onions and peppers. Brown the sausages first, then toss in the onions and peppers. Eat with Asiago cheese bread from Safeway and salad. The kids may even make this one themselves.
Crock Pot BBQ Pork Sliders and salad. The children get a break today.
Chicken, Rice and Cheese. According to my husband, this is going to be some sort of tortilla-less enchilada.
MaPo Tofu with green beans and rice. Tofu slicing, rice making and green bean shucking duties for the children.
After all the warnings about not touching knives and not playing with a hot stove, it's time to turn 'em loose.
Eat Well. Be Well.
