Once a month or so the Boys Take Over the kitchen and cook the family a meal. They get to choose what they cook and I assist with information but they do the whole thing. Today it was Roast Chicken and Vegetables and it was delicious..... served with a creamy herb butter sauce. No mishaps... nothing burnt and a good lesson in paying close attention to time and the order in which to cook things. It was fun and practical and empowering. They are becoming quite adept in the kitchen.
