In families with picky eaters, mealtimes are often stressful instead of enjoyable. A food adventure can be a great way to change the tone of mealtimes. Each Friday I host a link-up called Food Adventure Friday. The idea is to plan something fun that involves food.
Here's your challenge: start planning an adventure for sometime in the next week. If you have a blog, blog about your adventure and then come back next Friday and link-up. If not, just come back next week and tell us about your adventure in the comments section.
Need some inspiration? Here are a few "Food Adventures" I've had with my kiddos over the past few months:
My adventure today was cooking dinner with my daughter. She loves cooking with me, but we don't do it nearly enough anymore. I'm usually making dinner in a rush and I feel like I don't have the time. Today I made a concerted effort to start dinner early so that she could help. I was so proud of the way she read the recipe (Wow- she can do that now??!!) and figured out calculations with fractions. Me: "We need 3/4 of a teaspoon, but there isn't a spoon with 3/4." Her: "That's ok, I can use three of these (showed me the 1/4.)" I must say, I was one proud mama!
I haven't done a very good job planning my adventures and most of them have been last minute decisions, so I'm doing the challenge too... I'm starting now to plan next week's adventure. I want to plan a movie themed meal. One thing I know that I want to include is this garlic, parmesan popcorn that Elise over at the Frugal Farm Wife shared a few weeks ago.
So, now it's your turn. If you've had a Food Adventure- Link Up! If not... start planning for next week, and if you want, share your ideas in comments.
