Because of the cartoons Bubble Guppies aired in Nickelodeon Jr, everytime we ask Super Z now “Hoe laat is ‘t?” She will always answer “Het is eten’s tijd!”
And yes, as boring as this sounds I am going to write about the different ways we eat the same dinner. 🙋
Dinner: Chicken Schnitzel, Steamed vegetable that includes carrots, cauliflower and brocolli, creamy cheese-curry sauce, and rice (to which I fried).
Ps. This menu should actually be eaten with potatoes (steamed or otherwise grilled), but my husband wanted rice.
So I sauteed it with burnt garlic and some secret filipino spices (aka Ginisa Mix that I got from Judee 🙅)
Since this is my blog, let us start with me:
Fried rice with the typical Dutch Schnitzel. Instead of the curry, to my husband’s surprised face (that he denied being surprise), I opted to eat it with my own sauce – vinegar, a dash of salt and minced garlic!! Yummy!
Our Papa, of course, followed the menu. Boring, eh? 🙆
Super Z, on the other hand, already had pasta with spaghetti sauce 1 hour prior. So her plate includes the chicken schnitzel and the steamed veggies. (She will eat rice if the viand is adobo or sinigang! 👌👍)
No matter the manner of eating, we enjoyed our dinner – together.
I believe this is one important fundamental to keeping a strong family foundation.
Start early. 💁
