Toby and Anton have always loved food (here’s proof), and now they’re getting interested in cooking. We’ll whip up oatmeal or French toast in the mornings, but for dinner, I decided to get a month of Blue Apron family meals and really cook with them…
They liked seeing all the ingredients lined up. Over the month, we made almond-crusted cod, butternut squash gnocchi and fish chowder, but our favorite were these Swedish-style meatballs with egg noodles and lingonberry jam.
The recipes are all easy and kid-friendly, and their instructions look like comic strips with step-by-step photos and written directions. Toby loved “reading” them to me.
Before we started, I did the washing and chopping, so Toby could focus on the fun stuff. He stirred the sauce in the pan, poured in the kale and grated the pepper.
To a one-year-old, the raw turkey meatballs looked just like chocolate chip cookies. Sorry, Anton!
Alex and I devoured the meatballs with rich, creamy sauce and the pasta with kale, while the boys ate the plain meatballs and noodles. We had such a great month cooking together, and I’d love to keep it up.
