Ro and Ree would rather eat carbohydrates than anything else (well shoot, who wouldn’t, heehee?!), so I’ve redone our lunch menus to help push a variety of foods in a way that’s fun for all of us.
Now we have a page for proteins, a page for starches, and a page for fruits/veggies. Basically each day when lunchtime rolls around (and we’re actually at home), the girls agree on one thing from each page and then I don’t have to rack my tired brain trying to come up with something other than PBJs to slap on the table. (Seriously, why does my mind go completely blank as the clock strikes lunchtime?) Anyhow, they like the independence, and I like the variety.
These are all basics that we always have in the cupboard or freezer, they’re all foods that Ro and Ree like, and they’re all quick fixes (because I refuse to spend a whole lotta time on lunch).
Now, for my Microsoft Word question: how in the world do I get different headers onto each page? This is a simple three-column MS Word doc with pics from Google Images pasted into the columns (see my doc here), and I’d really like to write the categories (protein/starch/fruit&veggie) at the top of each page, but I just can’t figure out how. Argh!
(The menus are clickable to larger versions, in case anyone wants to save or print them, or I published the MS Word doc here if you’d like to download it to your computer and customize your own menu)
