Athlete’s Plate by 4 year olds

So as I was getting ready to peruse through the nominated blog tonight and begin to build the ideas for an Athlete’s Plate based on that blogger when I remembered that I was given a Holiday Cookbook by Chico’s teacher when I picked him up the other day.  Karen and I have gone through this many times and laugh each and every time.

Go through the menu and let me know your favorite.

Chico on the cover….that boy has some cooking gear!!!!

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chicken Pizza

Cheese Tacos and Pepperoni Pizza

Chocolate Ice Cream and PB & J

Cheesy Pasta and Fruity Green Beans

Texas Chicken and Spaghetti with Meat (not meatballs!)

Meat (not meatloaf!) with special sauce and Mashed Potatoes

Ice Cream Sundae

You can leave a comment after you stop laughing.

    The ice cream sundae recipe appears to be for 1 person…4 cups of ice cream, and 2 cups of carmel sauce! Hilarious!

    My favorite is the meat with special sauce.

    The directions call for cranking up your oven to 1000 degrees for 2 minutes.

    Then cook the carrots at 600 degrees for 1 minute.

    This all might work but I don't know if my oven goes to 1000 degrees.

    I'm going for the Cheese tacos. Can't get much simpler than that! :)

    Hahah. My daughter's first grade did something similar in how to make a Thanksgiving dinner. Loved the one about how to make a turkey: you cuss at it, like my mom does. Another great one was: pour 5 gallons of sugar, an egg, and water. Bake for an hour.
