Once kids are school-aged like mine, it’s reasonable to expect them to shoulder some pet care responsibility. However, keep in mind that, although they may want to handle something like the litter box or dog walking, they might not be ready just yet.
Have you heard of ALDI? They’re a national supermarket that sells the most popular private-label grocery items at insanely good prices, we’re talking like a 45%-50% discount to traditional supermarkets. And, you don’t need to buy their products in bulk to enjoy the savings, which living in an apartment in NYC, where kitchens are galley-sized, that’s super important.
Can’t wait to see what awaits mom and kid viewers with the fun and imaginative iCarly iCook with Birds Eye (aka VEGETABLES!) recipe contest. I hope it’s as creative as Spaghetti Tacos.

Every weekend when I prepare my list for the grocery store I encourage my kids pull out the cookbooks, thumb through them, and tell me if they see anything interesting. I know that you can search for recipes online, but flipping through an actual book is an entirely different experience. It enables you to see recipes and foods that you would never search for left to our own devices. I am positive that my children would pull up a search on a recipe website, type in chocolate and leave it at that.
