Mi Amore

What do you do when you have oodles of afternoon left and 'nothing to do'?? You turn those bored, restless children into famous Italian chefs, is what you do. My little amores made spaghetti sauce for the very il primo time. They chopped mushrooms, onions (sniff, sniff- I sense a science lesson here), carrots, celery and garlic. They thought it was funny that they put sugar and wine in with the tomatoes. They LOVED when the tomatoes exploded in the heat of the pot. And, they really liked their dinner. I think they might have had thirds!

And yes, that is a headlamp my daughter is wearing. Don't worry- there was no loss of power, just a shadow puppet show on the wall!
