One of the changes we've made with the new chore system is to have Emelie (14) cook dinner twice a week. She's often helped me in the past, but now it's all up to her for the whole meal to be ready when Dad walks through the door.
After the first night, I asked her how she liked it. She said it was tiring but better than scrubbing toilets (which I'm now doing in exchange!). I'm excited to teach her everything that goes into feeding this crew: the adaptations we make for our tastes and budget as well as the quantities we need.
This is a short week for us since we'll leave on Thursday to enjoy a weekend of Indiana State History Field Trips! Here are some of the favorites we will be having:
Monday – BBQ Beef Sandwiches, Potato Wedges
Tuesday – Dried Beef Gravy over Toast, Eggs, Fruit
Wednesday – Pinto Bean Casserole
Thursday- Sunday - On the road!
