We did end up skipping swimming (the Chef has a bad cold), which took the pressure off. So we altered the plan a bit and made super simple soup, which was chopping carrots and celery and simmering in beef stock. All started off relaxed and under control. Then I started trying to help the Chef with his homework while cooking, and things got crazy. The broth boiled over and I forgot to add the pasta. Through it all, though, Baby Zi proved that he is way past the "baby" title and a full-fledged Chef Zi. We'll have to come up with a name for him soon. Anyway, he stood beside me on his chair sawing celery with a dulled steak knife, which was pretty helpful. He ate about half of it then. The kids always seem to snack on the veggies they cut. Raw potato, broccoli, green beans. They won't always eat them cooked, or even if I try to serve them raw at the table. But when they are working with them, they eat them. Interesting.
