Shopping List from a Six-Year-Old

In our ever-evolving efforts to get our picky six-year-old to expand his palate, we asked him to be chef for a night. This morning his job was to plan a menu and make a shopping list.

Here’s what we have so far. Admittedly, this experiment is not off to a blazing start.

That said, he definitely wins points for enthusiasm. And his shopping trip also made it into the L.A. Times (“Wordless Wednesday” column) for his efforts, so that’s good for something, right?

      LOL – We had those in our cupboard for quite a while and I guess I threw them out. I suppose now that it’s November we’re going to start seeing them pop up in the stores once again.

    This is awesome! I wonder if he plans on making bacon-wrapped hot dogs. Yumm. At least he incorporated a fruit and a veggie.

      Thanks, Erika. In fact, we just got back from our shopping trip and both hot dogs and bacon were involved. We’ll see what develops!

    What did he want the onions for?

      LOL – I told him we needed onions so he added it to the list. But he wound up incorporating it into dinner – in the fruit plate, of all things! http://bit.ly/9sAKGQ
