Menu Plan Monday

July 26, 2010

As the boys are getting older (2 1/2) they are having more and more requests for foods to eat.  For instance just tonight they wanted oatmeal for dinner, easy enough, right?  In fact they each ate 3 bowls!  But since they are taking more interest in the foods they are eating I’ve decided to try letting them “help” me in the kitchen.  We are starting off  with Stuffed Corn Tortillas and if all goes well hopefully the recipe will be posted this week.  Wish us luck!

So at what age did you get the kids involved in the kitchen?

Last week we enjoyed:

Mushroom, Bacon and Egg Casserole

Smothered Chicken and Rice

Thai Tacos

This week we have planned:

Breakfasts:

Bacon, Eggs and toast

Oatmeal with fresh fruit

Pumpkin Yumkins (they boys have been asking for some muffins, so here we go)

Dinners:

Sticky Chicken

Photobucket

Stuffed Corn Tortillas using sticky chicken meat (recipe to come)

Easy Barbecue Chicken Pizza using sticky chicken meat (recipe to come)

Pork Chops, Okra, and green salad.

Snacks and desserts:

Baked Custard

I have no “kids in the kitchen” tips for you – but I’ll be excited to see what you end up with!

Your Sticky Chicken recipe comes at a great time since I just got a whole chicken and I had no idea what to do with it!

if my family came to your house for dinner, they would think they are in a gourmet restaurant. Good heavens girl…you put me to shame, lol

Yum, those thai tacos look like fun.
My kids helped from a young age…about two.
