>homemade ravioli soup

>

He uses my Lefty wooden spoon and my stock pot, but the rest of the meal is all him. I’ve not been teaching my son how to cook . . . he’s been teaching me.
On most Sundays he cooks for five of us. We sit around the stove-bar and help him stir. We are his tasting crew.
Because he does the cooking and the grocery shopping (fresh parsley, new garlic cloves) we do the dishes. And when I say we, I don’t mean me. I mean the other three.
He watches with a satisfied stance. We both like this photo.

  1. >Glad to hear someone has the same rule as we do…if you cook, you have earned the right NOT to do dishes. Looks very scrumptious!

  2. >Wonderful to see someone enjoy the cooking. It makes a meal taste better than when it's done under duress. And even the dishwashing feels less onerous. That ravioli looks good, I can almost smell it.

  3. >hi kerry,well yes, i have that rule. but sometimes i wake in the morning to a sink filled with undone dishes. how does that happen?hi elisabeth,the ravioli meal was wonderful. i have plates and bowls that are different colors and don't quite match up. when we set the table for five, there is a sense of anticipation to see what bowl/plate you end up with. much good natured teasing and trading results.hi nicolette,oh i love that you like that last photo! those are his favorite socks. they are actually snowboarding socks, but he wears them even in the summer.
