If you’re new around here, you might not know that I’m also a germaphobe.
It doesn’t make sense, I know. You can read that post linked above to see my attempt to explain.
Anyway, as someone who has unintentionally dieted after seeing a not-guaranteed-to-be-perfectly-sanitized hand reach into a bag of my favorite chips or candy . . . I like to come up with ways to keep grubby little hands from contaminating the cheese or whatever else needs to be self-served. (What did they touch or scratch or pick on their way from the sink to the table?)
Building your own is part of the fun, right?
I give each child ramekins filled with their favorite ingredients and a few shells to start out. Refilling the ramekins? Much easier and less repetitive than making multiple individual tacos for three kids.
The Good Mama Perspective: The system is efficient, and the kids are self-sufficient.
The Mama-has-issues Perspective: Even though I often just have to get over my germ issues because I have three kids, I do love to come up with solutions that allow us to function in spite of my issues.
And that’s my tip-that-no-one-but-me-probably-needs for the week.
Our menu plan this week:
Monday – Grilled chicken with fresh veggie and fruit assortment
Tuesday – Beef Stroganoff
Wednesday – Chicken Fried Rice
Thursday – Chicken Fajita Salad
Friday – Out to Eat!!!
Saturday – Leftover BBQ chicken from the freezer
What’s on your menu this week?
I’ll be linking this up to Menu Plan Monday over at Orgjunkie.com.
Oh, and the link to the ramekins on Amazon? It’s my affiliate link. I LOVE my glass ramekins and use them ALL the time.
