An English message for a change. Last night (because we've started to limit the boy's time on the Wii) Greg was bored and said he had nothing to do. I suggested he help make dinner and nearly fainted when he agreed!
On the menu was vegetable stroganoff so he chopped onions and garlic in a Tupperware 'chopper' gadget which avoided him using a knife, then he chopped the mushrooms carefully with a knife and sautéed everything together before adding the cream.
Of course, I hoped the fact that he had helped cook dinner might make him eat it - no joy! He loved the creamy vegetable sauce but wouldn't touch the mushrooms or the peppers, ggggrrrrrrrr! Anyway, it was very pleasant to have him in the kitchen chattering away (as Greg does) and obviously enjoying himself.
