So last night’s steak and cheese frittata dinner was not so much a hit.
It’s my fault.
I had the audacity to put onions and peppers in it.
He ate it, but only grudgingly. You could tell from the expression on his face that he was stewing over how much I’d ruined — RUINED! I TELL YOU — nature’s most perfect foods, steak and cheese.
Whatever. Which is something I’ve been saying a lot lately. But so goes parenthood.
I considered torturing him by including some of the frittata in his lunch today… But decided to be a nice dad. Instead, I went with leftover chicken and butternut squash curry from a couple nights ago.
You know that thermos is coming home with little flecks of onion collected at the bottom. I’m sure he picked them out…
To that, I added a chia pudding. Love this stuff. All you do is mix chia seeds and almond milk, then refrigerate overnight. By morning it is thick and the seeds taste like tapioca. Add a bit of honey and cinnamon and it’s a healthy treat.
I rounded out the lunch with a few easy items — deli ham, raspberries and a few oat cookies. I packed a little on the heavy side today. He didn’t eat much breakfast and I didn’t have time to argue with him about it.
Will be curious to see what comes home…
