My son is 11 and I'm very happy that he has enjoyed his FACS class at school. FACS (Family and Consumer Science) is modern vernacular for what I used to know as Home Economics. Anyway, in his class he has been learning about food and nutrition and they were assigned to make dinner for their families and report back about it. Well, I'm delighted to see that DS is picking up some of my love for grilling. We planned out a meal consisting of grilled T-bone steak (medium rare), grilled sweet potato, grilled potato wedges, grilled onions and grilled asparagus. He made a terrific meal (with only a little bit of help).
He learned the wonderful joys of cutting onions!
In addition to the grilled foods mentioned above DS wanted to make a special appetizer. I think it was quite creative, myself.
The veggies came out GREAT.
And the steaks! Yummy.
I think I'll let him cook more often.
"Ancient" Chinese Chicken with Green Beans and Caramelized Shallots - I use the term 'Ancient' loosely here. It's not an authentic ancient Chinese recipe but the name given the recipe in an old cookbook of mine from 1986 ...
