We had some guests over for dinner on Saturday. Julia now insists on helping out and she even has her own knife (dulled slightly but fine for cutting cabbage) and an apron sent to her by a family friend, Tani-san. She loves cleaning up as well and, at three, is a great little helper.
It was a great dinner, a beef stew that has been simmering for the past couple of days, Izumi’s special top ramen/cabbage sesame oil salad, and appetizers. The two couples that came over both had kids so we started at four which worked out just perfect because everyone was able to leave satisfied at eight when the kids began to get sleepy.
