Monday was a meal of Monte Cristos and Apples & Onions. Monte Cristos are one of David’s favorite meals, and he had asked Chef Sunday if he could help make them because he wanted to learn how. Of course, Chef agreed.
But when Monday came, David had homework he wanted to finish. Plus, Malachi, our nephew and one of David’s good friends, showed up. David and Malachi don’t get a lot of time to hang out, so David was hesitant to pass up time with his friend in order to help Chef. But then Malachi agreed to work in the kitchen, too, so they got the best of both worlds!
They started with the Monte Cristos. Chef lined up the bread, and David was responsible for slathering on the mayonnaise while Malachi took charge of the mustard.
While those were cooking, they moved on to Apples and Onions. Malachi used the Apple Corer-Peeler-Slicer.
David worked on sauteeing the apples and onions with the bacon.
The meal, of course, was wonderful. And I bet the boys enjoyed eating even more because they knew they’d helped.
Well, that’s what I like to think anyway. And if I convince them, then maybe they’ll take over the cooking altogether!
