In the kitchen

Last weekend the children took over the kitchen to make us dinner.  They jumped at the suggestion, planned an eclectic menu and went to work with the help of some cook books, a little parental help and lots of gusto.

The menu included baked potatoes with sour cream and cheese, pasta with tomato sauce, steamed carrots and a fruit salad.  While the sauce was from one of last year's leftover tomato sauce jars and the fruit salad contained a sliver of glass and had to be removed from the table, overall the children had a great time creating something together for us.  The meal was more healthy than I had anticipated, and from this beginning, of course the possibilities are endless.  Word is plans are being made for the next monthly feast already....
