Another Place at the Table

Gentle reader, you may have noticed Oscar Banquet has been on a lengthy hiatus. The reason is there has been a new addition to the family. Baby Cleo was born in March. She is now 3 1/2 months old and in this short time she’s already changed and grown so much. Oscar adores her and is infatuated with licking her, especially the feet.

Cleo recently passed through the needing to be held every single moment stage to actually being quite content to lie in her bassinet in the kitchen while I make dinner. As I’m cooking I tell her exactly what I’m doing and she beams at me. She doesn’t yet understand what I’m saying, she just likes the sound of my voice. How great is that! I love the idea of her growing up in the kitchen surrounded by the smells, sights and sounds of cooking. She will know that food doesn’t only come out of cans or Styrofoam containers. She will know the rituals and pleasures of preparing food. I’m looking forward to training my little sous chef. Another pair of hands to help shell peas, sift flour, and another mouth to taste the sauce.
