Linus, part deux (plus more)

I know you’re on the edge of your seat. “WHAT BACKPACK DID LINUS PICK!?!?” you’re screaming. Well, your wait has come to an end. He chose…

Minions.

But there was no matching lunchbox.

Okay.

Mario, then.

No matching lunchbox.

There’s gotta be something.

Lego? Nope. Skylanders? Nah. Power Rangers? Oh please, Mama. Eye roll.

How about…

Darth Vader?

Yesss!

Whew.

Now, this was after dinner. And honestly, because of what Linus did at dinner, I would have bought him every backpack at the store.

This is what I put on their plates. Grilled chicken, a few square inches of sauteed kale, and half of a tiny roasted potato. The chicken, I knew they’d eat. The other two things I threw on just because I am an eternal optimist.

Well. Linus ate his kale. And liked it. And asked for seconds, and thirds. They all gobbled up the potatoes (you’d think roasted potatoes wouldn’t be a hard sell to kids who eat french fries, but well, you know my kids.) It was a triumph! Woot!

I’d like to thank Penzey’s for their help. The Country French Vinaigrette was what I tossed the potatoes in before roasting and the Trinidad marinade went on the kale. (They also will eat the heck out of fish when I sprinkle it on.)
