Dinner Chez Grasshopper

The girls have been participating more and more in the cooking and baking.
They usually perform tasks such as mincing onions, or cutting something into small pieces.
Whenever possible I explain how the tasks are part of a bigger picture.
Grasshopper decided to make her own soup, using ingredients of her choosing. My participation was limited to suggesting that the onions be sauteed. She did that and developed the rest of the recipe.
She took notes and can repeat it later.
Some of the ingredients were: potatoes, spinach, garlic, and the juice of tangerines. Color was an important element.
it turned out very edible and tasty. The time spent in the kitchen with my daughters is rich in love, tolerance, and creativity.
