G1 has taken to cooking meals or parts of meals. This particular day (last week sometime), he decided on the chinese veggies and tomatoes. He cut the tomatoes (with supervision), put the veggies in a pot and added some salt. I made the rice. He "set" the table with the towels and put the spoons next to the bowls because it looks nicer than putting the spoons in the bowls. I think he did a great job for 5 yo.
