He is getting there

Monkey has decided he wants to learn to cook, I started off simple, with foods I know he likes that are easy to prepare such as Spag Bol, pork chops, random shit shoved into a pan ans fried.

Today we have gone a step further, I told him what I got out and he went off and looked for a recipe, he chose chicken pasta bake, which then meant we had to use different things for some of the ingredients, but otherwise he did a good job, its boring for me as I am there to make sure he doesnt chop a finger off, but otherwise he does everything else.

Next week, I am doing a shop, so I am going to get him to pick some meals he wants to do and he can meal plan for them and pick the days he wants to cook. I think probably once a week will do to start off, but hopefully in 6 months time, he will be doing all the cooking and I will not be moving.

    That is great! Next, teach him how to do laundry and clean the house. Soon you won’t have to do anything!!

  2. Nothing is better than your child learning to cook. I love that I can pass that off to T now. I can relax and he makes dinner. I do the clean up. Although I do the clean up when I cook too. That may have to change. 🙂
