…can be fun when you have a kitchen aid like my little son. He’s 4 years old and interested in cooking and dining, it seems. But even if he only tries to impress me with his skills, he’ll be learning a lot about cooking and life as a whole while helping me in the kitchen.
Children should have their hands on real food very often in order to become decent grown-up people. Unfortunately, many parents don’t care too much about this. And many children only know that dinner is ready when they hear the bell of the microwave oven ringing.
It’s a shame, don’t you think? Here’s a remedy against it: have a delicious, handmade salad. Get fresh peas, a good hand full of mint leaves, prepare a vinaigrette with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Steam the peas (5-6 minutes, then let cool), cut the mint, mix it all with the vinaigrette. Top with some ricotta, if there is any in your fridge. Sit down. Eat. Enjoy life.
