Uli's most recent imaginative play often involves "going to work." Last week she was a "cookbook writer," and I took dictation on the recipes she thought up. I wanted to share a few:
Feeling peckish first thing in the morning? Of course. How about making:
Mix together. Serve.
Need a beverage with your first meal of the day? One that'll really wake you up? Make a pot of this:
Mix together. Drink.
The great thing about this next recipe is that if there are leftovers (an unlikely possibility, to be sure, but if there are) they reheat really well:
- sweet peppers
- yellow cheese
- black beans
Mix. Bake. Eat.
Need dinner ideas? What could be more comforting on a cold, winter's evening but a big bowl of:
Mix. Cook on stove. Eat from bowls with spoons.
And finally, sweet yet also [for some reason] mustardy:
Mix ingredients together. Bake in the oven until it's done.
All of this, straight off the cuff! I can only imagine what she might create once she gains access to the actual kitchen...
