Chasing full tummies…
One of the things I’ve had the hardest time transitioning to as my family grows is making enough food for everything. Lunch today required 2 cans of Tomato soup, half a loaf of bread, and more cheese than I can count. We started off the lunch with 1 can of soup and that was clearly not going to feed 4 little kids with appetites the size of Texas. I’m scared to think of what will come at dinner time.
I am constantly struggling with making enough food to make everyone happy. My kids go through cycles of what they like to eat and I never get the memo on which food is okay for which day. If we have leftovers, it’s because someone didn’t like it. Sometimes even if they don’t like it they will eat it all.
I can’t complain too much because my children love fruits and veggies. We never seem to have enough of them in the house (or ranch dressing or hummus to dip them in either). They crave PB&J and love tomato soup. But there just doesn’t ever seem to be enough!
This week my goal is to make enough- enough for dinner, enough for a snack, and enough for lunch! I really want to be one of those families that gets lots of meals out of one cooking session! I want my husband to not give me the sad puppy dog face when he thinks he can’t fill his plate up with a main dish (he is not a veggie kind of guy- even on a diet).
This week my goal is a healthy, happy, and FULL family.
