Meet "Pierre" who I found on a recent outing of treasure hunting. It actually started as a little bit of a joke that I just knew my kiddos would love. You see, it's become somewhat of a tradition around here that the very first thing out of all of their mouths each morning ... especially with Oliver is "Hey Mom, What's for dinner tonight?" As most of you know, I really do love to cook and my kids love to eat. I have been very lucky in that none of them are picky eaters and no food allergies and they are all eager to try just about anything I make. Oliver, is our resident foodie, aspiring young chef and now my sous chef. Every week we sit down together on Saturday morning to plan the next week's meals and make our shopping list. I don't plan out what we will have each day but rather 7 dinners which are completely flexible.
Well, I have to admit that I am thrilled that I have such enthusiastic little eaters but, after hearing "Mom, what's for dinner?" several times each day it begin to get just a little annoying repeating the same thing over and over again. When I found "Pierre" I knew he was the answer to my problem and mega cute too! Now each and every morning I make the decision of what we are going to make for dinner and I write it on Pierre's chalk board. That way when the kids start coming down in the morning "Pierre" is waiting to tell them what's for dinner. Tonight it's chicken & biscuits one of their many favorites!
