Cooking Lessons

Last night, as I was making dinner, my son came into the room.  "Mama, can I help you make dinner?"

"Sure," I said. "I'm making chili."  (Can you believe it? - Something different than chicken!)

I browned the meat and then drained it.  Then it was time to add the spices.  I measured and let him sprinkle the spices in the pot.

"Two tablespoons of chili powder," I said, handing the spoon over.

He sniffed it and dumped it in.

"A teaspoon of cumin," I said.

He sniffed and dumped it in.

"A teaspoon of coriander."

He sniffed it and wrinkled his nose.  Then he sneezed.

"Hey," I said.  "Boogers are not in the recipe!"

Bubba grinned.  "But I bet boogers taste a whole lot better than that stuff!"

    1. I don't like cumin by itself or as a main spice, but a little bit tastes good in chili.

  7. I don't think I want to eat chili at your house. I'll take the chicken, please, as long as Bubba doesn't sneeze on it.

    Love,

  15. I remember having odd thoughts about spices as a kid. Also, when I was in charge I added way too much.
