7yo: It was yum! I had the veggie enchilada, corn, a salad, 2 sandwiches, 2 glasses of milk and a plum.
7yo: Oh, and I had 2 yoghurt parfaits for dessert… What’s for dinner?
Sooooooo, it seems that in order to ensure my children don’t explode in some sort of Monty Python-esque way (“Just one more wafer”) it looks like the main meal of the day at our house is shifting to lunchtime.
It’s probably not a bad thing to eat more earlier rather than just before bed – & it certainly fits in better with the over scheduled & homework filled afternoons that being back at school now brings.
Which is why tonight’s dinner was roasted cauliflower & parsnip soup with sweet potato ‘fries’ and steamed green beans.
I simply chopped a head of cauliflower & 3 parsnips into smallish pieces and placed them, along with 6 cloves of garlic (still in their skins), on a baking tray. I then sliced one sweet potato into chunky fries & brushed all of the vegetables with canola oil & roasted them in a 400F oven for about 25 minutes.
Then I placed the onions, cauliflower, parsnip and peeled (!? – don’t forget that bit!) garlic in a blender & added one quart of vegetable stock.
Done. And it was light, creamy, delicious and very satisfying…
… But you’ll never believe it, he asked for dessert! 😮
