We rarely have chinese food because the OH isn’t a fan. N has the occasional chinese curry at nursery or school, and sometimes during shoot season when we’re eating without the OH, then I’ll make some kind of chinese dish.
This time I made orange chicken in my new slow cooker. N loves rice, and he gave it a good go eating the chicken, although I think it didn’t need as much cooking as it got. He was determined to have a go with chopsticks because I’ll try and keep my eye and fingers in.
It wasn’t a very successful attempt but I’m pleased he gave it a go. I do need to get him one of the starter chopsticks that are connected so it’s easier for children to use.
Maybe I need to get him started on spaghetti rather than smaller pasta shapes. It’s never too early to train children how to twirl spaghetti. The OH chops his up and it drives me nuts. It’s so much messier, and if you can twirl spaghetti round your fork on the place it’s quicker and neater. My mum taught us from a young age so I’m pretty nifty at it.
I love the chopsticks photo. He’s concentrating so hard, I expect his food was cold before he managed to pick any up.
