Some time ago Joy proposed that Mookie be responsible for one dinner per week once she turned nine. That is still several months away, but Mookie has been eager to get on it. So tonight, with only minimal help from the assistant chef, she made her first dinner: pasta with “sprinkle cheese,” marinara that Joy had made and frozen some time before, and a side dish of carrots. She also got the drinks and set the table. Everything was delicious.
She plans to make dinner every Thursday.
