Today is pizza day, so I just sent in her water bottle. The lunch box looked sad and empty, so I quickly added a bit of chopped green salad (my mother-in-law’s dinner… :P) with romaine lettuce, chopped celery, sliced mushrooms, and peppers. Nothing red unfortunately, but I figured the tomato sauce on the pizza should count! I then included a small bottle with a soy-ginger dressing, and told her she was going to be able to put her own dressing on! She was very excited.
I just realized I must have given her far more dressing than needed, and hoping the dressing doesn’t spill out afterwards. Oh well – we live and learn.
I cooked a simple dinner for my mother-in-law who’s helping me out by picking the girls up from daycare. I seasoned a pork tenderloin with Trader Joe’s 21 spice seasoning, and grilled it on high heat for about 10 minutes on each side. I then removed it from the heat, and put it in a corningware with a lid – hoping it would act as though I had covered it in aluminum foil to let it rest, and continue cooking. I also made her a salad (which I grabbed a little for my daughter’s lunch) as well as a side of mixed vegetables. Hopefully she likes it!
