This weekend was busy! Friday we took off of work to run an all day hockey camp. Phil was of course in charge of the hockey and I served lunch with help from Meg. I'm not much of a baker so Meg made the most delicious chocolate chip cookies. Thanks Meg!
I was a little stressed the night before considering I don't have much experience feeding kids (not yet at least). I decided on turkey, ham and tuna sandwiches. I found some whole wheat Ciabatta rolls and also bought a lot of white country bread for the more pickier kids. I love provolone cheese on sandwiches but I was worried about the flavour being too sharp for the kiddies and opted for Havarti and some crunchy Romain lettuce. For the tuna, I used a little mayo, finely chopped celery and Alfalfa sprouts. I knew I was pushing it with the tuna and sprouts and I was right, it was only tuna left at the end of the day.
After doing a look around the room I saw some of the kids removing cheese, lettuce and some eating up to three sandwiches just as I made them. I think I learned that there is no pleasing all kids. At the end of the day waiting for the parents to pick up the kids I sat with the last two very chatty boys and tried to get their feedback. I asked them what some of their favourite foods were and got "Kraft dinner" and "Hamburger Helper". The next sessions are for three days just before Christmas so I better start brainstorming some new ideas. This is so new to me!
