We had a family meeting this week and the kids have decided they each want a turn cooking tea. I'm not entirely sure how it came to this, but I'm not complaining. They each have a day of the week and have to let me know at the beginning of the week what they are planning to make. I'll do the shopping, they'll do the cooking, sounds perfect...
First up today was Sam and on the menu was Asian Chicken Noodle Broth, courtesy of Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food. With a little tweaking of ingredients (mange touts substituted for asparagus) and a little help from Mummy, dinner was served.
It was seriously delicious. Noah seemed to enjoy his, despite being rather hesitant and refusing to have anything green in his bowl.
Even thought it doesn't look like it, Ruby loved hers and had seconds. I know it looks like she's being forced fed, but really, she loved it!
I'm sure the novelty will wear off long before the second week materialises, but I for one am enjoying it. I'm loving the company in the kitchen and a little one-on-one time chatting about the day. So if it means I don't actually 'not cook', I love the interest they are showing in looking for recipes and deciding what to make that we will all enjoy.
Noah's up tomorrow...cheese omelettes and strawberry trifle!
