When I had a son, I vowed he would not be one of those spoiled boys whose mommies did everything for them, preventing them from learning even the most rudimentary domestic skills. No son of mine would go to college unable to prepare a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese! Recognizing that Drew is 6 now and ready for a small measure of independence, we've begun to teach him some basic cookery skills (not without a great deal of trepidation). He's learned to use the microwave and the toaster, and he's allowed to use his small serated knife to cut fruit, cheese and bread. Today he invented the following (quite yummy) recipe:

Strawberry Bagel Sandwich (as dictated by Drew)
Cut a bagel in half (Be careful or you'll cut your finger!)
Toast it in the toaster (Be careful when you take it out, or you'll burn your finger! If you burn your finger, put some ice on it to stop the burn)
Smear cream cheese on both parts of the bagel
Cut up 2 strawberries (or you can use as many as you like - it won't make it taste any better or any worse) into slices (Wash them first!)
Put the strawberries on the bagel and smoosh both parts together
Eat it up
