I don't know where the child learns this stuff, but on a whim last night Theo set a very formal dinner table including 2 forks, 2 spoons and 2 knives. I felt obliged to meet the level of fancy, so I quickly ended up putting together a very simple 4 course meal. The kids were delighted with the pause while I served up the next course rather than just having everything put out on the table at once.
Here was our "fancy" menu:
Salad course - tomato, cucumber, pesto salad and Indian veggie pakora
Soup course - chicken consumme with rendered duck fat
Main course - BBQ chicken on cauli-rice with delicata squash accompanied by lots of butter
Dessert course - paleo chocolate chip cookies and a cup of hot tea
Made me miss my favorite tasting menu at Rover's in Madison Park. I think the last time I was there I was vegetarian, which just goes to show how long it has been. I wonder if they have a paleo option. Mmmmmm.
