Everyone knows I like to cook, not for the sake of cooking itself, but because I like to EAT. So I usually cook 2-3 times a day, even when it’s just me.
Well a couple of weeks ago, my littlest (3-year-old) asked to help me cook dinner and whaddaya know…. he’s a natural-born sous chef! Granted my nerves could only stand for him helping me make salad, but boy did he help me make a MEAN salad!
I won’t let him cut anything just yet (even with kitchen scissors), but turns out he’s great at washing fresh fruits and veggies, and shaking up a tasty vinaigrette. And he assembles a salad most perfectly! 😉
Now everyday I ask him what he wants for dinner and he says “Salad! And pasta! Can I help you make it?”
An added bonus…. even if he tells me he doesn’t want or like something, the minute I let HIM make it, HE LOVES IT.
How’s that for meal planning?!
