My kitchen helpers would rather eat cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for every meal. As a matter of fact Maurene will answer 'cheese!' every time you ask her what she would like to eat. The only change to that is when she wakes up wanting a bowl of cereal. A picky child can break a mother's heart.
The reason I started cooking with Maurene was to help expand her palate, that and she would not take no for an answer. She loves to help. After a year and a half in the kitchen she is truly a good helper.
Mo is so often my companion these days. This meal was no exception. She stirred the sauce while I gathered the ingredients. Another simple meal but one that made us all happy. I did not follow a recipe this time. A few tablespoons of peanut butter, a tablespoon of oil, and a teaspoon of soy sauce. A little minced garlic topped the sauce up and made it yummy. Mo stirred and stirred while I cooked the pasta.
