One of the many things that Ezra says he may want to be when he grows up is a Chef. His future plans bounce around a bit, as most children’s do, between Scientist, Chef, and an Explorer. All very fun things to aspire to be.
Today he had the day off of school and I was a busy busy busy in the kitchen preparing for Thanksgiving. He asked if he could cook his own afternoon snack. I made sure he had a plan and that is was something safe enough for him to do and gave him free reign over his snack preparation. He thinks he is a pretty big boy that I allow him to use a butter knife to cut up fruit.
Here is what he came up with.
Bread with sliced apples topped with grape jelly? He ate every bite so it must have tasted ok.
