My kids are pretty independent and often do their own cooking. Nathan has been cooking since he was little. We’ve often talked about his friends who haven’t a clue in the kitchen Nathan doesn’t get it – his quote was “if you can read, you can cook”
A funny story – when Nathan was about 10 he decided to surprise us with moose chimichangas for lunch. So that we wouldn’t guess what was going on ahead of time he actually defrosted the package of meat under his bed – luckily it was in a vacuumed sealed bag !! It was actually very good – he googled a recipe and took it from there.
I really love this b/g paper from Amy Tangerine – I’ve been hoarding it
