Well. I received one comment about what your kids eat. Thank-you, Jim. I’m hoping to get more. To inspire you, take a boo at The Girl’s Top 20.
- Bacon, because everything goes better with bacon for The Girl, too.
- Buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup.
- Bread, any kind, toasted and preferably with butter, but peanut butter in a pinch.
- Carrots. Lots and lots of carrots. Raw only.
- Caesar salad, but no anchovies and go easy on the garlic.
- Cherries, dark red and firm, not the yellow Rainiers.
- Chicken tikka and naan from Indian Oven.
- Eggs, always as an omelet (but only with free-range eggs from Maple Hill Farms because the yolk is almost orange), made with olive oil and preferably accompanied by bacon.
- Grilled cheddar cheese on sourdough, with the bread buttered on the outside before going on the grill.
- Hot dogs, all-beef, with mayo in a whole-wheat bun
- Hamburgers, although only with ground beef from Hopcott Meats.
- Lamb chops, double-loin and barbecued.
- Long Bread (The Girl used this word as a toddler to describe a baguette, and it stuck), toasted, then painted with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.
- Mandarin oranges, two at a time, but the skin can’t be leathery.
- Milk, always whole and almost always with homemade chocolate syrup.
- Quinoa that’s been simmered, tossed with olive oil and soy sauce then baked in oven.
- Pineapple, which has to be ripe, but not too ripe.
- Tuna salad on rye with mayo, hold the pickle.
- See’s Candies Scotchmallows.
- Yogurt, whole milk only, spooned over granola made with spelt, kamut, rice and rye flakes, plus shaved coconut and honey), with bittersweet chocolate disks tossed in.
Now it’s your turn. What are your kids’ favorite foods?
