My 10 year old son decided that he wanted to make dinner tonight bravo! and he's making it right now. He chose to make spaghetti frittata with onions, zucchini and tomatoes. He read a number of recipes in the 365 Ways to Make Pasta recipe book and decided on this one. I recommended a few other (easier) ones to him but no, he had to make this. He has to chop zucchini, onions, garlic, tomatoes. He was quite disappointed not to be allowed to use the insanely-sharp-cleaver-that-I'm-slightly-afraid-of and is "making do" with the chef's knife. He won't let me stay in the kitchen because he said that I'll take over. How well he knows me.

I guess this is a good thing that he's so interested in food that he wants to make it himself but I think I'm going to have heart failure. Maybe I'll go out to the garden.

He just walked past me saying "I'm fine in case you're wondering...it's just a small cut." Oh oh


SHRIEK!!! whoo hoo! whoo hoo! la la la skip skip skip skip skip stomp stomp

Excellent! bravo! bravo! Not the cut boo!, but the dinner-making stomp. I hope it is just a small cut. It sounds like he's also capable of dressing his own cuts, though - also excellent.

How was the dinner?

whoohoo! la la la

Excellent! He made a vegetable sauce (onions, zucchini, tomatoes, garlic) that took less time to make than he expected so he left it on the stove on a low heat. The onions and tomatoes caramelized (sp?) and made a sweet yet savoury sauce. It was fantastic. He didn't quite understand that he was supposed to serve the frittata like a pie and spoon the sauce over top so he broke it all up in a bowl and mixed the sauce in. Whatever! It was delicious however it was served.

His true motivation came out as we were eating this excellent repast: "Is it true that because I made the dinner that I don't have to do the dishes? whoohoo! whoohoo! whoohoo! "

edit: I forgot to say that the cut was quite minor. He didn't let it slow him down at all. Hmmm, maybe he'll have his own Food Network Show: Cooking To Get Out Of Doing The Dishes

bravo! Well done Brownboy!! bravo! I've often thought that a spaghetti frittata would be good. Am I wrong that there are eggs in this dish as well?

Hey!! I didn't know about this rule! stomp Does this mean that I get to cash in by refusing to do the dishes to make up for the times that I made dinner AND had to do the dishes? whoo hoo!

Errrr!! These are almost the scariest words in the English language. It reminds me of a skit I saw years ago on TV. It was set in the cockpit of a plane and the pilot turned to the copilot and said, "Let's have some fun with the passengers." He then went onto the speaker system, introduced himself as the captain and said something like, "There is no cause for alarm. The right engine has not cut out and is now running."

Very relieved to hear that the cut was minor.

Well done Brown Boy.
sounds like a great meal. And I agree, He ( she) who cooks should not have to do the dishes.

Congratulations on being able to stand back and watch a 10 year old with a sharp knife. My 13 year old occasionaly gets it into his head to cook dinner for us and I find it extremely difficult to watch him chop and slice even though I've taught him how to do it safely and he's done it dozens of times. It's worse that making a fire.

My 13 year old didn't do much cooking. But now he's 23 and bawls me out (gently) for my dangerous knife-work. la la la

Ah, but I didn't watch him. I just showed him what to do and then went away to sit on my hands.
whoohoo! whoohoo! whoohoo! la la la skip

whoohoo! Good for you Brown boy! Yumm Exclamation

And good for you too Mrs. B. for letting B.B. use the sharp knife even though you had qualms about how he was cutting. We're glad that it was only a small cut that he did to himself and that the spaghetti turned out so well.
