sunday night dinner

during the week i bought this great kids cook book, with really yummy and easy to prepare meals.
Hugo excitedly 'read' the book and asked me if he could cook something.
he sat down this morning and looked through it. he decided on fried rice and apple fritters.
he made us dinner and it was great.
he grated the carrot and zucchini, chopped the bacon, whisked the eggs.
arch measured the rice and tipped it in the saucepan.
Hugo then mixed it all together and there was dinner.
Hugo ate two bowlfuls in record time and arch didn't lift his head as he polished off his bowl. it was the easiest dinner in a long time and the boys ate well.
as i tucked Hugo into bed he asked if he could do dinner every week. absolutely !!!!
1/3/ :: tonight we had a roast and both boys ate Hugo's fried rice instead !!!!

What a lovely experience. Not only are they working together, but it is really engaging Hugo in so many ways - reading, measuring, fine motor skills. And getting them to eat - OMG!!! Alexander is interested maybe I should get this book! Hope all is well - missed you last night Nic
