The Kids Help in the Kitchen

Last night, Jay helped with dinner.

We had Barramundi on the grill, brushed with herbed lemon butter. We used the indoor grill/griddle because it is easier to grill fish indoors & this way Jay can help.

We also had grilled portobello mushrooms. They were also brushed with the herbed lemon butter.

He even helped with the risotto. This was just a basic risotto, nothing interesting about it.

He made the salad on his own. Dinner turned out quite well. We may have found a new fish we like (we'll have to try it at least once more before we can be certain).

Dea made most of dinner tonight. We had chicken & spinach lasagna & salad. I made the salad. Dea made the lasagna, with a little guidance from me. She made a white sauce. She mixed chicken, half a bag of spinach, and a container of ricotta cheese together. Then, she layered noodles, the chicken cheese mixture, and the white sauce. She topped it all of with some shredded mozzarella. Bake at 350 for 1 hour, covered with foil for the first 30 minutes.

Here is the cat begging me to give him some of the chicken:

And here he is mad at me for not giving him chicken:
