Miss 9's First Dinner Party

Yesterday afternoon Miss 9, with the help of a friend, cooked a dinner party for us ...

Here's the menu:

And this is what the table looked like with all the food laid out. Miss 9 is in the back of the photo:

The food was excellent. Even Miss 7 tried EVERYTHING and especially loved the Paprika Chicken.

I really liked the Bread Sauce with the vegetables (and everything else), and I'm not a fan of sauces.

Dessert was fantasic - must get her to make those tartletts again! I'll post the recipe on my blog too when I get it off the chef.

Unfortunately, after a morning of Little Athletics, an afternoon of cooking - Miss 9 was actually too tired to eat much :(

She looks proud as punch! Good for her! It's great she's learning to cook at a young age. Too many of my daughter's friends think that cooking is something that Mom and Dad do.

Congrats to her! I know she made you proud! Does she know she's gonna get to cook a couple of nights a week yet :-)

Well done, to Miss 9. The menu sounds splendid. Preparing a special meal is one of the most loving things a person can do for others, and it sounds like she's starting early on this warm, wonderful art of cooking. Congratulations to her, and I'm a little envious!

Not bad. May I ask what 'bread sauce' is?

Julie said...

Thanks for stopping by guys.

Berys you wouldn't believe how much they've grown up - maturity and size-wise.

DB kid's cooking is a bit of a fad at the moment - with Junior Masterchef on TV currently. I think it's great that kids are taking an interest in preparing food rather than just buying take-aways.

Jim she wants to cook from scratch every night - but unfortunately my work schedule doesn't allow for that (nor her after-school activities).

phlegmy thanks for that. She is very proud (and rightly so) of her efforts.

Suldog this ... i'm not exactly sure what went into this particular version, but it was delicious.

Julie- Bet she loses that 'appetite' for cooking before long...LOL

That's fantastic! Congratulations to her and her assistant chef!

I hope there were enough leftovers for Miss 9 to sample at her leisure!
