My son Tim is a typical 11 (almost 12 :) ) year old boy. He loves Star Wars, Legos, playing with guns (much to my dismay!) and crude humor LOL! But, he also loves watching the Travel Channel and the "food" shows. His favorites are Man vs. Food and Good Eats.
I think it was while watching on of these he was intrigued with a recipe for flank steak. He asked to look through some of my cookbooks so I showed him where they were. He found a recipe for Beef Roulade made in the crock pot. He also found another crock pot recipe for a hot chocolate cake like dessert.
Today is the big day. He is making this for dinner for us. I went to the store yesterday and picked up all of the ingredients and he will be making the meal (baked potatoes included) and dessert.
I am excited that he has an interest in learning to cook. All Rich can cook are burgers on the grill and shake and bake pork chops or chicken. I would love to see Tim know how to cook for himself when he is old enough to be out of the house and on his own. Who knows, maybe someday I'll get a thank you from his wife, who won't be the only one in the family to do the cooking!
I'll let you know tomorrow how the dinner turned out.
