Georgia and June's Breakfast Today

1 whole banana
1 glass of green smoothie
1 bowl of Cheerios
2 slices of bacon
and a glass of milk

All of that plus another half slice of bacon

Sheesh!  Our grocery bills are already out of control, and our 5th family member hasn't even started making much of a dent in the food budget.  

Here's the smoothie "recipe" that we used today, but with smoothies you can always wing it on amounts and ingredient substitutions:
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 c coconut milk
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 c water
  • handful of frozen peach slices (maybe 6?)
  • hunk of kale (approx. 1 c)
  • top with ice (about 6 cubes)
Blend.  Yum.  

June, keep your food on the table!

Better to spend a bunch of food and have them eat it than to have them push it around (Rosalie), throw it across the room (Violet), or declare it unacceptable (Lila). ::sigh::

Oh, I hear ya! I am very grateful that they'll eat. And even with "good eaters," I often find myself cursing the amount of food that goes down the drain. Dinner bugs me the worst because it requires the most effort to put together a nutritious meal, only to have the littles declare it unacceptable. But I am really stubborn in that regard -- no second meals/alternate offerings here! The only exception I guess is when Joe and I decide to order out for ourselves (usually stuff G is allergic to) and feed the girls some mac n cheese beforehand. Good luck, Cara. Food woes suck.
