Autumn's Activity day project

Ok, so Autumn chose as one of her projects to: Plan, Shop, Budget, and Make dinner for her family. Which she did AWESOME! She made a well rounded healthy meal for her family. She was given a set amount of money and only spent .89 cents over her budget and got and extra pie, icecream, radishes, and drink in addition to her list. I am very proud of her.

This is her meal, chicken noodle soup, her favorite food. From scratch. Cut up the chicken, carrots and celery etc.

She also had salad, which she pulled double duty with the veggies and added them to the salad. Carrots, and celery! And added her own flare and added cheese and radishes.

The frozen pie's in the store were buy one get one free. So she got to choose 2 pies. She wanted to make the pies also, but mom decided to make one thing from scratch this time.

Pumpkin and dutch apple

This is the meal! Corn, salad, chicken noodle soup, and sunny D. She even garnished with cilantro and extra cheese. Have you ever had cilantro in chicken noodle soup? It's delicious!

She also said "look at my red cheeks and sweaty bangs, that was hard work!"

She did such a wonderful job. I really did not do anything except help hold the carrots while she chopped them, because they were so hard to cut through. And the next night for dinner we had enough for left overs. It was DELICIOUS!

This is her bowl she ate a TON of food this night. As did we all. It was a wonderful feast.

I remember when you were only three you could fix Macaroni and Cheese all by yourself...you have always been a very good cook. GOOD FOR YOU! I love that you are learning about being a wife and Mom. I love you!

I'm so proud of you! It looks like you did a wonderful job and planned so well. Your meal looks delicious. I could almost taste it through my computer screen. I'm glad you are enjoying activity days. Camryn is too. She just can't stand to wait 2 long weeks until she can go the next time. Good going Autumn!
