Chicken Soup for Christmas

December 14, 2009

The Mommies and Random Granddaughter are scheduled to make an overnight visit a couple of days before Christmas.

As RG is so finicky about food, we requested suggestions about the menu. My daughter replied:

Thanks for asking about food – it’s nice of you to take the kid limited palate into account.

AE requested chicken noodle soup, but if that doesn’t seem Christmasy enough, baked chicken (or turkey breast) would both be kid-approved. She would like homemade pizza for lunch – is that a possibility? She usually really enjoys both helping make it and eating it, and since you have the fancy pizza stone and all, I thought that might be a winner.
We will see what happens when the rubber hits the road.

    If you teach RG to eat like a normal person, we will probably feed you for life.

    “Chicken Soup for Christmas” sounds like a children’s book title.

    I see Mrs Random meeting these requests most happily

  5. Homemade pizza sounds like something anyone in his or her right mind would go for in a heartbeat. A pizza stone, eh? You are quite the culinary professionals.

      My wife went through a phase of making our own pizza and delved deeply into technique and equipment. As she hasn’t done this for several years, she is making pizza tonight as a trial run so she won’t embarrass herself in front of Random Granddaughter when the real thing occurs. (Assuming she is our real granddaughter and not a changeling.)
