If kids cooked holiday dinners
October 2, 2008 · Updated 9:23 AM
The children at Mountain Valley Montessori School in North Bend are budding gourmet cooks and party planners. If these children were hosting a holiday party, here are some special dishes they'd like to put on the table.
Staff asked, "What would you prepare for a special holiday dinner with friends and family?"
Children answered (teacher responses are in parentheses):
Aahir, 4: How about chickens? I want aaloo (potatoes), I have it at home, that's what I need.
Andrew, 4: I like pepperoni pizza, that's what I would eat ... cheese pizza, too. Spaghetti, chicken dinosaurs, steak, bacon and that's all. Wait, and ice cream, that's a dessert ... and that's about it.
Astrid, 3: I can't cook, though? I'd give them a special surprise for dinner ... I'd give them flowers, or something ... white flowers or something ... or something else better. I like tofu. I like celery and carrots and marshmallows ... are marshmallows good? Cakes and tofu and a surprise and ice cream is good, too. Do those sound like yummy things, Katy? (Yes.) That's all ... isn't that a lot of food?
Audrey, 5: Strawberries, bananas, blueberries and raspberries, blackberries, pumpkin pie. Hmmm ... oranges, no wait ... no oranges, maybe some corn-dogs. I think that's it.
Benzi, 3: Soup ... chicken noodle soup. Macaroni and cheese. Dessert. (Do you have any favorites?) Soup.
