You guys remember a couple of weeks ago when I told you I was taking Friday nights back? I was NOT joking. Like I would ever give up an opportunity to get out of making supper!! No sirree. Not only am I taking back the disappointment of never having to eat cold chips again, I’m also taking back my need to do it at all! Yes, you heard me right. I’m not making Friday night supper again (at least until the oven chips run out).
Take that weekend, I’m finally doing you right.

It was pretty easy to sucker, uh, I mean get my kids interested in making dinner for all of us. The girls are at that age now where they want to be involved in the kitchen. Like super involved. They are still excited to come up with meals to make for the family and to cut up all the ingredients.
Not like me, where it literally feels like a job all on its own to come up with new ideas everyday! Do you feel that? That relentless need to feed the family every flipping night?! Yoh, it’s never ending. Here’s the thing I love though, keeping these chips in the freezer means that you can literally whip them out whenever you are stuck for options. That’s just a little side note, but damn, it’s a worthy note.
Keeping the girls interested in cooking probably means that I need to ease them into it. Which makes making McCain Chips the perfect solution. For the girls to cook their first real meal, we opted for the McCain Crispy Oven Original option.
Then they literally just had to choose something to have with it, before popping it into the oven (I did assist with this part – I’m not completely keen on rushing to the hospital burns ward). Thankfully they chose fish fingers which were the perfect thing to pop in the oven with the chips.
The chips were in the oven a bit longer than the instructions but only because our stove is so old and weird. But the good news is that they turned out so lekker! They were crispy on the outside but so soft and yummy on the inside. I know that technically I shouldn’t have any right now, but I couldn’t resist trying one.
Then it was time to prep the plates for serving. They took this pretty seriously and catered for their guests. Kyla only got cucumber, Riya only carrots and Knox got both. I’m not sure if they were catering for him or punishing him, but either way he ate it all. (Because even though it’s a chill Friday night, you can’t skip on the veg).
The kids really, really enjoyed their supper. Knox loved being served by his sisters, because that NEVER happens. They were so excited to savour every mouthful that they’d slaved over that they ate it all with chop sticks haha.
Over all it was such a great experience for them. Plus the chips were REALLY good. Like, mouth-wateringly good.
I can’t wait to see what our dinner with Seth and Knox brings!!
