When Gretta asked to make her own lunch for Friday morning, I didn't object, because she was staying over with her grandparents, and we both knew Grandma was going to edit and supplement her choices.
But this morning, when she asked again to make her own lunch, I got to do the editing.
Here's the 'before' version:
It seemed a bit light on... everything but starch... We edited and supplemented it together. I have a feeling my lunch-making days are numbered, though. Gretta would like more gastronomic autonomy. Meanwhile, Hannah, Gretta's 14 year old sister, has asked me to start making her lunch to save her time in the morning.
At first I jumped at the idea, but now I'm not much enthused, as this request came with a long list of instructions and forbidden foods. ("Nothing too healthy, or weird. Nothing I wouldn't like. Can you put two cups' worth of hot cocoa mix in everyday?") I doubt I'm going to be starting another blog called "Hannah's Lunch" anytime soon!
Here's Gretta's lunch, the 'after' version:
Right: salad with dressing in Winnie's head
Bottom: two rolls, green grapes
