I had a different recipe planned today, but then I got the bright idea of recording our dinner adventure last night.
A few weeks ago I assigned The 9-Year-Old one night a week to cook dinner. He’s far from able to do it by himself, but this is my attempt at making him a proficient meal preparer. Too many people don’t know the basics of cooking or make it out to be more complicated than it really is.
I’m not claiming to be a 5-star chef or anything but I can pretty much cook anything from a traditional grocery store as long as I have a heat source and a pot. Actually, a pot isn’t even required if I have a grill! Anyway, my goal is to show my kids simple, basic techniques that can get a healthy dinner on the table without the use of prepackaged meal starters or a take-out menu.
Join us as we make Sweet Chicken Legs With Potatoes and Peas …
As you can see we didn’t really measure anything. My goal with this video isn’t to give you a recipe but more show my approach to involving an otherwise uninterested 9-Year-Old how to make a simple meal.
I may make this a series, but I’m not making any promises. Kids are fickle and I don’t want to force him to record videos if he doesn’t want to. He’s old enough to make that decision on his own.
