Classic Chef Zi moment
I just want to be clear at the start of this post that earlier in the day we stopped at Burger King, so I’m not Super Cook-With-Your-Kids-For-Nutritious-Meals-Every-Single-Time Mom. I’m not sure I can even take credit for what happened here: I decided to make kabobs on the grill, and asked the Chef to chop some vegetables. Baby Zi saw that his brother was up to something interesting, and was stretching to grab whatever he could get his hands on from up on the counter. So I got him a step stool and set him up with a cutting board, some zucchini pieces and a bunch of baby-safe kitchen tools – plastic silverware, his fork, a masher. And he got to work! He was so proud of how he mutilated the zucchini. He’d step down for a while and do something else, and then come right back to his project. Everyone was busy in the kitchen, and for dinner we had wonderful kabobs of red pepper, zucchini, onions and red cabbage.
