Zeke, the chef!

Zeke's 3rd class has a partnership with a food co-op and have been studying food and sustainability and healthy eating. Several weeks ago, he came home from school and started cooking. He made a really healthy meal full of vegetables and we all loved it. I had posted a picture on Facebook, but I don't think I blogged about it. He has cooked at least 3 times since and uses leftovers and other odds and ends to make his meal, which always includes rice cuz he loves rice.

On Christmas Eve, we have appetizers and I was in the kitchen all day getting them ready and some food for Christmas Day. Zeke wanted to make his specialty also and I welcomed the help. The little cutie then set forth in getting it all organized at noon. He got out the cutting board, the herbs he would use, the knife, the can of beans, etc. He made a list of what he would need (which he added to several times throughout the day.

He made his meal which we all genuinely loved. Akila especially likes it and the great thing is there was a good amount of leftovers and it will feed us for a few days.

WOW, Zeke! I am so impressed. Do you chop the hard veggies (like carrots) all by yourself? I'm wondering if I should be letting my girls start chopping. : )

He's adorable! I love his grin. You are lucky to have a son who cooks.
