Happy Father’s Day to all ye dads. And to my dad and to my son’s dad. (You know who you are.)
I jut wanted to let you all know that I’ve started blogging weekly for The Food Network, so every Friday I’m posting a recipe or something to do with cooking that is easy for kids to participate but also that helps them start to learn about food, cooking and kitchen skills.
Today’s post is sugar cookies for Father’s Day. Just the basic variety (cars, planes, trains). If you want to see kick ass effort check out this link to a cookie “remote control”.
I encourage Felix to cook with me, and before I teach him about organic or local or grass-fed I really just want him to see meals come together. A pizza made from scratch. Stuff like that.
And I do not mean to be preachy (we are having friends over tonight and I will be ordering pizza and just making a quick salad to go with–or actually asking my friends to bring that–better idea!) but sometimes a simple lentil salad with lemon dressing (canned lentils) can go a long way when paired with fast meals like grilled cheese-or pasta with garlic and butter.
And Does Felix eat lentil salad? Sometimes a fair bit, sometimes none but usually something in between. But, he knows how to make it! Though honestly, my cat could make it (it’s slightly more awkward whisking with paws we’ve found–and we keep electrical gadgets out of her reach).
You’ll see a new sidebar on the right side of the blog called Cooking With Kids and I will add links there as the blogs accumulate. Thanks for checking it out.
Have a fantastic weekend. S.
