What she doesn't realize is that my teaching them to help in the kitchen is precisely the reason David was weighing in with his seasoned (no pun intended) opinions on how to improve my kale cookery. That particular young lad can cook pizza, lasagna, szechuan broccoli, and quesadillas with the best of them.
No meat, though - he's an ardent vegetarian. And therein, my friends, lies my secret to getting him to help out in the meal-preparation department:
Me: (loudly) Gee, I wonder what I should make for dinner tonight? (Opening fridge) Hmmm, there's some ground beef - I'll throw together some sloppy joes.
David: Let me cook!
It's that simple.
