Look at that tiny little thing… you won’t believe how much she eats.
But if you think about it, maybe you can believe… she works out 4hrs a day, 4 days a week. During the school year this means 4pm to 8pm and that means dinner at 8:30-9:00 at night.
Thankfully, I have help getting her home from practice. This allows me to have dinner just minutes from the table when she arrives hungry from practice.
As spring turns to summer, I am grilling again. One of the nice things about eating at 9pm is that I have plenty of time to use charcoal to grill. When she was younger and did not work out so many nights, I used a gas grill. But now I am back to charcoal and it does make a difference.
Last week I made the first grilled hamburgers of the season and she claimed she was going to devour them. She pretty much did, she left a small portion of the hamburger but I figured that was because I supplied some tater tots so she just got full. Maybe…
Last night I made them again (I needed to use up the buns before they got stale) and she really devoured them. This time I had fresh coleslaw, which she also devoured. I guess that her post-workout muscles crave protein and vitamins that were not being supplied in the tater tots last week.
