I’ve been slow about training the boys in cooking, though they do help a lot with clean up. But they are interested in cooking, and I had better catch this train while I can, so I taught Sidney how to make oatmeal this week.
He has actually been doing the night prep of flaking the oats and soaking them for a while now. This morning, I mostly watched as he cooked the oatmeal and added butter, vanilla, raisins, cinnamon. His oatmeal was delicious.
I told him he would be soley responsible for breakfast one morning a week. He was disappointed.
“I was kind of hoping I’d get to do more than that,” he said.
I guess I had better give this kid more responsibility.
