When the kids don’t like dinner… Have them make a Wild Salad!

I made dinner today… Some liked it some didn’t! The ones that didn’t like it (*cough Simone and Andre*) decided to forage a wild salad since they were still hungry!

Andre collected sour flower (with the help of a friend).


He washed it and cut it…


Simone collected wild strawberries.

Andre found a wild onion and Simone picked some mint leaves.


The wild feast… (They decided to keep the onion and mint seperate since a little goes a long way)


The verdict…

Simone thought it was too sour…


Andre’s first plate had ranch and onion both of which he disliked…

Lol 😂 


However, his next plate he liked… 


Eli was curious … So he tried some…

And he LOVED it most of all (without the berries)!

Lesson learned this evening:  Eat what mom makes or make your own meal…

…and then make some delicious cookies to share!

  3. Great Fun! Was it hard for the kids to find the edibles? We’d love to learn more about edible plants.

    • Our yard is full of edibles (aka weeds LOL). There are YouTube videos about it and our park tour guide also shows us what is edible! Even Pinterest is helpful 🌸 the kids are learning what they like and how to make their salads and soups taste good by experimenting. Good luck 😊

      • Weeds, haha! I guess I’d find lots of edibles in my yard too! Thanks for the YouTube suggestion.

  4. That sounds like so much fun. I’m sure I have a lot of edibles around here. Experimenting might be in my future.

  5. That is so neat! Foraging is fun. I have many edible “wild” things growing all around. My favorite is dandelion. I have them most days. What’s neat is the entire plant can be eaten. My rabbit loves it too! 😉
