This week in cooking club, I told the boys I was going to teach them a recipe that everyone should know how to make. They guessed things like “cake”, “cookies” and “pizza” but were not disappointed to find out that the secret dish was none other than Bolognese sauce! I love Jamie’s version because it packs a great fibre punch through the addition of all the veggies and I added mushrooms as well since I love them in my pasta sauces.
Some fine cutting (and grating) techniques were, again, on display (though I had to cut the onions this week – boo!)…
We applied pressure with a paper towel and he was good to go with a bandaid, though he asked very politely if he could refrain from cutting any more, so I finished his carrots for him! Liam took charge of the “stirring” which he proved to be a master of!
Again, this was SUCH an easy recipe that even with minor medical emergencies (!) we were still finished in about 40 minutes!
As you can see – it was a hit yet again! And check out what these lucky guys packaged up and brought home!!! Even Henry who claims to not like carrots and mushrooms devoured his portion and gave it an enthusiastic 11/10. Charles gobbled up his portion too and bestowed a 10/10, whilst Oliver declared it “fabulous”. Liam, well he was a bit tired after all his adventures and still couldn’t think of an adjective to describe the food (I guess he was still mulling over the “gushing blood” incident!!).
