Cooking with Kids
I really have Things to Do today, like write a page for a collaborative project, like grade short essays, decide what to say to my students about my reaction to our video project, decide how to reduce the stress that sometimes vibrates through our house this semester.
So I'm blogging. I've got two draft posts in the works which I hope will be ready to share later in the week. And I'm buoyed by the fact that the little sitemeter reports over 1000 page loads! And of course thanks to everyone who's ever left a comment. Since I've been writing a bunch about cooking with kids, I thought I'd solicit some comments: what's your favorite thing to cook with the kids in your life? (for some inspiration beyond my bread photos (in this one, we're making sandwich bread with a friend of CG's), see the Scriveners' Frankenstein Tamale pie).
As you can see, I'm in a bread baking phase with kids, but I will cook just about anything with Curious Girl. A small cutting board and a cheese spreader make great first chopping tools (especially if you julienne the veg first). I love cooking with kids, sharing the fun of creating dishes, sharing the magic of watching tastes and textures mingle (especially now that she eats them!). (Our learning tower, btw, is key to our cooking endeavors (i have no connection to that site and in fact got ours on ebay, fwiw).
