Last week our family did a fun little "project" together. Each day we wore a different color. Then for lunch we ate foods that were that color (or I added food coloring) and I read Garrison the story of Noah and the ark and colored the color of the day into a rainbow picture.

Monday: Red
We had grilled cheese, apples and red V8 juice. I added red food coloring to the butter before I toasted it. We didn't wear red on Monday. I didn't even think of it until Thomas came home from work and pointed out that he was wearing a red shirt. Then we thought it would be fun to wear the color too.
Tuesday: Orange
For lunch we had mac 'n cheese, oranges and orange V8 juice. (Notice that I even went as far as putting our food into coloring coordinating plates, bowls and utensils. I know, crazy, right?)

For our snack that day we had vanilla pudding, vanilla wafers, bananas and I colored our milk yellow.

We had a chef salad, kiwi and I colored our milk green. I also learned something in doing this little "project", Garrison LOVES salad. He ate three bowls for lunch that day.Friday: Blue
We had pancakes that we added blue food coloring to and blueberries (not pictured).We all wore blue, but didn't get a picture of it. This is, however, a picture of a duck in our pancakes.
Saturday: Purple
Our weekend was crazy. Jackie came up to visit us and Thomas and I went to a symphony so we didn't eat anything purple. Although, I had grapes for the day. We also all wore purple, but didn't take a picture of that either. I really dropped the ball on the last couple of days, but we still had fun.
