My brother, his girlfriend and their little boy (my nephew) live in the apartment upstairs. In an attempt to save on food costs we’ve decided recently to have dinner together, buying the groceries and cooking. It’s nice because it actually does end up quite a bit cheaper, and it means no one (ie. me) has to sit all alone for dinner every day.
Most days I’ll do the cooking, and baby Viggo likes to join in. He will crawl or walk away from his parents and come into the kitchen. Since I can’t really be carrying him while cooking, I have started to put him in his chair next to me, and he’s having a blast! I let him touch most of the groceries (while still in bags) and tell him exactly what we’re doing to cook.
Maybe he’s the next Gordon Ramsay?!
