Iki-chan is really interested into cooking. Everytime he sees me cooking, he always wants to participate. Of course it makes my-already-slow cooking time getting even slower, but if possible (and save enough), lately I let him "helping" me.
Tonight I let him peeling the carrot for the first time. I was actually afraid if the peeler cut his fingers, but he insisted that he wanted to do it for me. I wonder if there's safe peeler available in Japan! He wanted to chop it too!!! Holding a knife is definitely very dangerous and a big no no now, especially because he's not a patient type of boy, and sometimes didn't want to listen to my instruction.
Papa-chan didn't join us for dinner tonight so I just cooked easy stir-fry meat and veggies. I let Iki stirred it a bit (I know, know...dangerous! :p), and then explained him that it was very hot so he'd better wait for me on the dining table. No photo because I had to hug him at that time haha. So here it is, our dinner tonight - by Iki-chan and mama-chan :p
He also enjoyed peeling a corn, though he mumbled disgustedly that it was very dirty when he cleaned the hair LOL
And ate it greedily
He could squeeze oranges too (oh well, it took forever to make juice from 1 orange!)
And enjoyed making lasagna
He helped me preparing Tonkatsu,
And this chocolate cookies too!
He always says happily "Ci-chan cooking, cooking!" whenever he wants to cook. I wonder if my boy later would be a cook :))
Tonight I found this easy recipes for kids site, referred by Lily (Thanks!!!). I think we both will work on those recipes soon. I guess I'd better set a fixed cooking time for Iki: for preparing his snack-. I hope he'd agree and won't disturb my own cooking time anymore!
