This week I decided to plan my muffin tin around Bread and Jam For Frances by Russell Hoban. We are ready this book for our letter J, which we were supposed to start a couple of weeks ago, but I was lacking motivation. In the story, Frances didn't want to try anything new, all she wanted was bread and jam. When her mother started giving her only bread and jam, Frances realized she did want to try new foods. The next day for lunch she was able to pull out a nicely balanced meal, just like her friend Albert had the day before. She arranged her meal daintily on a doily and had a vase of violets to place on her desk. This is what she had (and what the girls had today):
A thermos of cream of tomato soup (tomato soup)
Lobster salad sandwich (leftover fish which I crumbled up and mixed with mayo)
Celery, carrot sticks and olives
2 plums (they had one each as I am sure they were bigger than the ones Frances had)
A basket of cherries (2 cherries)
Vanilla pudding with chocolate sprinkles (I made vanilla pudding and mixed in peanut butter, yum)
(And I gave them a slice of bread and jam)
Hannah had pb and j, canned carrots and olives (which she is not fond of)
Also, I gave her some blueberries and chopped plum.
She didn't seem to care for the few bites of pudding I gave her.
