Salad for Breakfast?
Earlier this week Maddie came to me around 7:30am and asked if she could make a salad. Umm....I haven't even finished my coffee yet so no I am not emptying out the vegetable draw just yet.
Instead I grabbed the stack of colored foam laying in the craft cabinet and tossed a quick fake salad together. Maddie handed me foam and told me what we needed in the salad: lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and shredded carrots. Ahh how I love that my child LOVES her veggies!
I few hours later I also cut up some white and pink foam a la Allie's coffee to make 'Lola milk' or as the regular folks call it strawberry milk! Then we cut out some strawberries and blueberries with little bits of white for yogurt to make parfaits! Maddie spent the day cooking up a storm in her play kitchen and was thrilled with the new additions.
