I made a big batch of split pea soup the other day and the kids are sick of it, but we have to eat it up. So I put a spin on it for lunch today. The soup is now ogre mush, the broccoli are swamp trees, and the green rice is bug larvae. And thay are all drinking bug juice (water) out of green cups.
The kids are done up with green face paint and fingernail polish, and are ogres eating their ogre lunch, and as we've talked about, ogres eat a LOT and have VERY bad table manners. So the kids are having a blast eating with their fingers, pretending to belch and fart, talking with their mouths full, and generally being gross.
And after this, the split pea soup willl be GONE! Gotta love innovative parenting.
