Ethan cooks

Our apartment kitchen is so tiny that nobody is usually allowed in there when I'm cooking. So my kids haven't had much experience in the kitchen, even though they've asked me for years if they could help. See that counter space in the picture above. That's about all there is. It's as non-gourmet of a kitchen as you can get.

Ethan's scout group was doing a cooking merit badge, and he had to create a menu for a full day -- breakfast, lunch, and dinner -- then prepare those meals for at least two people. For breakfast he chose "raisins, oats, bacon, eggs, milk." For lunch he wanted us to eat celery, bread, butter, and peanut butter (but ended up just making Chris and himself a PB sandwich with celery and apples on the side). He made us a delicious taco salad for dinner, with taco meat, lettuce, salsa, cheese and crumbled tortilla chips.

Despite his somewhat interesting menu choices, I decided he should cook more often! But maybe when we have a bigger kitchen with more work space in a few months...
