Since school started i noticed the girls have been coming home real hungry and want a big meal, this resulted in a 3pm meal.
In order to keep on schedule of 5pm dinner and 6 bedtime I had to make alterations to eating schedule.
After eating at 3 I knew there was no way they would be hungry enough at 5. I experimented a few times by giving them breakfast foods like cereal and porridge.
I didn’t feel it was nutritious enough so we’ve switched to more side dish-like meals, soups and salads.
One of our favorites is a vegetable soup that I hope you and your family would enjoy…
It’s quick and hearty soup that’s simple to make.
1 can diced tomato with liquid or 5 fresh tomatoes diced and 1/2 cup water
2 carrots peeled and cubed
4 Squash peeled and cubed
1 onion chopped.
1 juiced lemon
2 tsp Cumin
3 1/2 cups water
Salt & pepper to taste.
Place all the ingredients in a pot and boil for 20 minutes or until the carrots are soft.
Remove from heat and blend all the vegetables and liquid until smooth.
Return to pot and boil for another 10 minutes.
Another favorite is curried pumpkin soup soon to be posted!
