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.
