Today the boys were in charge of cooking the family a whole meal.... and from the beginning had to do the entire thing themselves. It was a chance to make all the menu decisions and actually co-ordinate the cooking to understand the process of timing the different elements and of course work together and serve the food.
First thing in the morning preparing the chicken pieces with honey mustard for later on.
Getting ready to put the chicken in the oven......
A little olive oil.
Setting the table.
Best result of all.... cleared plates!
Chicken smells..... what can I say? More guests?
I have to admit not only did they cook a great meal but it was low stress and done in a very responsible matter of fact and fun way. The salad was particularly wonderful including walnuts and grated carrot..... It was delicious!
