It Starts Early

My sister's granddaughter has begun cooking and, apparently, inventing recipes already at the tender age of ten. Kelly and her Dad, assisted by little sister Milla, made a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting the other day and in a letter from my sister today came this recipe for Spaghetti Tacos handwritten on a paper towel.

To wit:

Spaghetti Tacos

Get taco shells
Get spaghetti w/ meat sauce
Get a BIG spoon
Use the BIG spoon to put the spaghetti into the taco shells
Eat
Burp

It will be interesting to see if this budding foodie continues to invent and tweak her recipes or moves on to other interests. I hope Kelly keeps writing them down - it's a bummer when you've made something yummy and can't recall how you did it, especially something as scrumptious as Spaghetti Tacos!

There was another recipe included for Tapenade but it lacked the specific directions about what to do once one has eaten. Apparently, Tapenade doesn't produce burps.

The sign of a really good meal, the burp :)

Spaghetti tacos! I might try one.

The "recipe" reminds me of this old story. A kid asks his mom how to make spaghetti. She says, you get some spaghetti, and you put sauce on it. Why?
Later, the grade-school fund-raiser cookbook comes out with mothers' recipes, and she is aghast to see: "you get some spaghetti, and you put sauce on it."

Morgan, so I've heard...

Cookiecrumb, I gather her Dad showed her the post and she was embarrassed for about 10 seconds.

Greg, sounds like a cause worth fighting for! :-)

Hey - every great cookbook writer has to start somewhere. Appreciating food, burps and listing ingredients is a good place to start.
Besides, I find the story utterly charming.
