A New Plan

After my rambling last night I had an idea. I am going to let Dragon create a meal. I am going to sit down with dh and figure out what kind of budget we can give him. I am thinking $10. We will let him look through the grocery ads and plan according to what is on sale. We will discuss his ideas and help if needed. I am going to do my best to step back and let him do this. I will also let him know that if he wants to create something of his creation he must have a shopping list and plan ahead(ie not tell me after we have gone grocery shopping). But I am also going to make sure that he understands that if you want to cook and create in the kitchen you must be help clean it.

Thank you for listening to me ramble last night.

I think you found a great solution to Dragon's problem! One thing I want to say is, perhaps the idea of cleaning the kitchen would be less daunting if he had help. I know I can't stand cleaning it by myself and my hubby and I actually have a deal. If I cook, he cleans!! But we usually end up doing it together.

Can't wait to see what Dragon comes up with!
