I'm spending today alternating between hanging out with my kids and doing some major cleaning that I've been pushing off, so I don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen today...
Vegetable Soup - leftover from Shabbat
Spaghetti with Alfredo Sauce
Fresh fruit (there seems to be a lot of fruit hanging out in the fridge right now, so we better use it up!) - my 6 yr old is determined to make a fruit salad for everyone. We'll see how she does!
I am a little nervous about letting a 6 yr old take on a project like fruit salad, since I am a little nutty about germs. I really hate spreading them around, because every time I catch a cold I have a major asthma crisis. I'm going to have to really work on letting my kids prepare food more, since they always want to, but I need to balance this with my germophobia. Usually I only let them help with things that I know will be cooked or baked (and hopefully that kills the germs that kids inevitably have hanging around them, no matter how often I make them wash their hands!), but this time, my daughter REALLY wants to make a fruit salad. Any ideas how to handle this?
