Today we worked on a couple of house projects. This means that all of the meals today were prepared by our Daughter, 13, and son, 11. Actually most (like 90%) of the cooking in our home is done by the kids. Let’s hear it for training up kids! WOO-HOO!
Lunch – We built a bonfire outside to burn off some odds and ends from splitting wood, so the kids decided to roast hotdogs over the fire. We don’t eat buns with our dogs. just not needed.
Mac and Cheese (left overs)
Greens (left overs)
Spaghetti with homemade meat sauce with hidden veggies. When the kids were little I started hiding veggies in different foods. Meat sauce is the easiest place to do this. Tonight’s sauce had carrots, onions, and zucchini. We saute the veggies, then use an immersion blender on them before adding them to the sauce.
Tomorrow we have pork on the menu. That went into the brine tonight so it can soak for 24 hours. This makes a huge difference in the flavor and juiciness.
