Day 4: Peanut sauce
My kid was on fire with the helpfulness today. He always loves to help, but sometimes his interest only lasts a minute. Or 10. Today he gladly pitched in with the laundry, putting away Christmas decorations, getting dinner ready and setting the table. (He even set a fourth spot and invited one of his stuffed animals to dine with us.)
Here you see him mixing up the peanut sauce. We tasted it afterward and it was pretty sour so we laughingly added a bunch more brown sugar and even, to his recommendation, a tiny bit of milk. It worked. He tasted it and gave me a thumbs-up, which sent me into a fit of laughter since I don’t think I’ve ever seen him do that before.
The funnier part is that he dipped his chicken in it at dinnertime and made a face. Apparently it’s going to take a lot more brown sugar to suit his taste.
