I try to get my kids involved in meal planning. My oldest is seven and he loves selecting items for our menu. He really loves asking for Mac and cheese! It has been his choice every week. We have tried several different recipes, but he always compares it to Cracker Barrel’s. I can’t make any that he feels can compare!
My daughter is a bit harder to convince. She isn’t a fan of most of my cookbooks. They just don’t appeal to a three year old princess! Princess?! Duh! That’s what I need to get her attention. I ordered this Disney Princess cookbook and she was instantly much more interested in cooking.
She looked through the book and picked Merida’s Bulls Eye pizza. It was a very basic recipe. My husband just adapted it. He made a basic pizza crust, put Ragu spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese on top. He then placed the pepperoni on top in a Bulls eye pattern. Voila!
