He Cooks

Recently, Adrian said to me, "Mama, can I go fill a bowl up for dinner?"  What he meant was he wanted to gather a medley of finds from the garden to concoct into a dinner masterpiece. 

Certainly, by all means. Go ahead.

He collected this:

And the two of us made this:
 I have no idea what it was. Summer squash, kale, herbs, white beans, homemade cream of mushroom soup (I store that in the freezer for quick meal starters), rice, our own broth and our own milk.

You know...it was really really delicious.  Who would have thought of that combo?  I guess Adrian.

He also wanted to pick some flowers.
 PLus he helped make the bread.
 Voila. A meal. Made (mostly) by a four year old.  He's really the best chopper out there.
 He was so proud, he kept wanting his picture taken. He never wants his picture taken.

 His dad said he thought this was the best soup ever.  And you know what? I don't think he was just being nice. It really was fabulous.  Thankful for our little garden to table chef.


  1. A chef is born! Could it be genetic? Those breads look fabulous! What a fantastic way to spend the day!

  2. Looks delicious and I love his excitement! The bread looks wonderful!

  3. Wow, how cool! Tell him we said good job and what a smart little chef :)
