Locusts Cooking (Part II)

Luckily for all concerned, we did not have all of the ingredients for alfredo sauce on hand last night. Instead I was served ramen and a side salad. To my utter astonishment, Chaos was the one who asked if the kids could cook more often. He wanted to make it so the kids cooked four nights a week - that way their individual turn to be in charge would come around more often. Havoc was all about it. Bug almost choked. When asked why he was against it, he said that if the kids cooked every night then we'd be eating more meals like this (as he pointed before him) and then he said, "I want a chance to eat good food sometimes." Chaos made a few stabby motions at himself to show he was wounded but everyone was cracking up. We decided to up the kids' cooking nights to twice a week - Tuesdays and Thursdays. We reiterated the rules about menus being set and grocery lists being made two days before the dinner. Chaos was such a good sport and in a fine mood, he agreed to all of it. It worries me a little about what he's planning for his next turn, but it was great to have such a lively family dinner. Not that they aren't all fairly lively - what with Eddie Izzard punchlines and all. Oh - that reminds me. This is why God invented Youtube - so I could show you our family's favorite comedian!
