The Pramadhs love food, love cooking and love experimenting. Since very young, Ira has been Papa's assistant while he cooks. She is all excited and set with her apron and has helped him make pakoras, chicken and even cookies and brownies.
This first Sunday of July, was a first for us. Papa two days back said let us try something new. One Sunday a month Ira will plan, prepare and present the breakfast. The menu is her choice, we will help her source the materials.
Ira felt a bit overwhelmed initially, saying how will she do it all alone. Then we told her that we would be there to guide and help her with critical (using gas for eg.) things. For the record, Ira has been taught to use the gas stove, under supervision.
So, she decided that the menu would have bread, eggs, jam, butter, peanut butter, cheese slices and juice. She also asked our preference for the eggs, Papa said he will eat what she serves while Mamma said, boiled eggs :)
So, post finishing her milk, she arranged all her ingredients and began making breakfast. She took help only to on the gas to place the saucepan in which she was boiling eggs. She decided boiled eggs is easier than making scrambled eggs even though she is a scrambled eggs fan.
Mamma helped write the menu board!
Papa got peanut butter and Jam sandwich with Orange juice; and his second one also had cheese slice, on special request. Mamma got buttered bread with boiled egg with sprinkled pepper and Ira had same as papa with Mixed fruit juice.
Breakfast was had and she said, Phew! Thankfully, this is just one Sunday a month. She also immediately reported to Joy how making breakfast for everyone is terrifically terrifically terrifically hard. As I write this, she is resting her back after all the hard work! Happy Sunday, I say!
Little learnings in little moments, as our little human beings discover the joy of Independence and agency.
I am sure waiting for the Sunday in August to see what we have for breakfast, the Ira way.
