Yesterday I taught my 12 year old how to make a full meal for a family of 4 with a frugal ingredients list.
“Let’s make Monkey Bread,” she said.
“I wanna bake,” she said.
Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures. My phone obviously needs its eye cleaned…
I don’t have much fresh stuff in the house anymore (it’s been 7 days we’ve been staying home) and I feel too uninspired to venture out so I created a new salad with what I still have on hand.
Clearly, I’m not social distancing from my fridge as per my previous post… (ha).
I haven’t packed a school lunch in…days!
I have however made supper every day. Boo.
Wanna know what I cooked yesterday?
Q1: What does one cook for a family who is partially bored of staying in and socially distanced from their friends?
A1: I have some ideas…stay tuned. (It’s only been a few days here in Toronto, but it’s been much longer in other places and the internet educates us with their plight, creativity and humour.)
Q2: Who fights off boredom with incessant snacking and questions about what’s there to eat?
A2: Teenagers. They’re a hungry bunch. Bored teenagers are even hungrier. (And we’re only on day 3 of the social isolation…)
I stretch meat when I can, since I’m feeding meat eaters here…But I do it for two reasons: get more meat for our hard-earned buck, and to boost flavour and nutrition.
Do you serve rat meat to your peeps for dinner?
Yeah, me either. 🙄
