Today (Saturday) Breakfast
Mark - huge bowl of cereal
Ryan - 2 weetbix and a banana, followed by a honey sandwich
Ben - 1 weetbix and banana followed by a vegemite sandwich
That is just breakfast. It does slow down a bit over the day. They enjoy lunch - a tin of spagetti (each for the little ones).
So that got me thinking, how am I going to feed them as they grow up and get bigger. I did a google search "large family cooking" and that took me exactly where I wanted to be. Religious home schoolers with big families. One of them - Responding in Faith - has made me laugh because of her breakfasts.
Imagine going to that much effort for breakfast. Hasn't she heard of cereal? A smoothie? Toast with vegemite? What the heck are biscuits and grits (my initial guess is scones and well I just dont' know about grits)
Then comes lunches:
Snacks and dinners are fully planned too. I didn't read the blog too much, but I'm guessing she homeschools. How does she have time to homeschool, cook, clean and do laundry for her 5-7 children. I need to have a little lie down thinking about it.
