Saturday and Sunday were then left for me (Maybe Garrison and Gary will pitch in as well!) to take care of. Menu planning has never been easier!
It's rather obvious our family tends to be rather heavy on the meats (especially hamburger!) and breads, but we are working on that- you know, the importance of choosing a well balanced meal including more vegies and fruit, etc. Hopefully we can also work on not needing a "feast" every night or meat every meal, but for now I'm proud of them for putting forth the effort and doing most of the work. Of course, at their ages, I am still in the kitchen with them as they work and helping with instruction and difficult aspects but honestly for the most part they are doing all the cooking.
