Having our grandson with us we decided to let him do some cooking while he was here. I borrowed a book from the library and had marked a few recipes that I thought would be suitable.
Our grandson chose a recipe that he fancied, it wasn’t one of those I had marked, and we checked to make sure we had all the necessary ingredients. This recipe book is by Stephanie Alexander who started the Kitchen Garden Project in schools around Australia. The project has been highly successful and so I thought the book would be a good one for a recipe as the recipes had all been made in the schools that participate in the Kitchen Garden Project. The recipe was Baked Potatoes with Spring Onions and Grilled Cheese. The trickiest part was scooping out the potatoes as there is always the danger that the scooping goes too deep and the skin gets broken but that didn’t happen as our grandson did it very carefully. The spring onions were chopped and mixed with the scooped out potato and some butter and cheese then returned to the skins. The potato on the left was a left-over from the previous night. They were topped with cheese and a knob of butter and put in the oven to brown. He was absolutely thrilled with the result as were we. Do you have a children’s cookbook you can recommend? I can certainly recommend this one.
