We do that every Friday night it's the kids turn to cook. Matteo does the main and Zara assembles dsesert. I live in hope 1 year on that it will mean I can kick back with a glass of wine and a book while it happens but we're not there yet. I still have to be available to advise on readiness, chop onions, read recipes etc. His lasagne is sensational.The one meal M can absolutely do on his own is chicken drumsticks potatoes & carrots cooked in tomato & a variety of herbs, olives or whatever takes his fancy. That is sensational and has been a lifesaver when I have had a migraine, but now we have chickens, we can't seem to cook chicken any more ..We have lots of books, so we flip through those, but what I would really love him to have is his own spiral bound book with print outs or photocopies of the recipes he has done so he can write his own notes on them. There would be a lot of satisfaction in watching that book grow I reckon. I wish I'd done that when he started. Perhaps Tom would like to do that.
