In the Kitchen with Finn

Today Finn requested to make lunch.  I almost said no, because I was feeling a little unhinged, but am so glad I acquiesced and agreed! I taught him the simplest of simple: the cheese quesadilla. It's our house version of a grilled cheese sandwich, since we don't do bread. I gave him verbal instructions step-by-step while hanging out at his elbow.

  With a dollop of salsa and some sliced apple, it made a semi-monochromatic, but quick and simple, lunch.  He wanted more food after he finished eating his first two quesadillas, so he went to the kitchen and made two more all by well as an extra one for Annie.

I could get used to this!


  1. Finn, when I eventually get to the States I hope you'll make me one of those. I like your presentation on the plate too.

    1. I'm sure he would! In fact, today he told me he plans to learn to cook a whole meal for dinner by the time he's 10. We'll see....
