A bit of left-over roast and veggies meant it was time to make borscht at our house. Charity started cutting and pulling the roast into smaller pieces, and Katya, after observing with interest for a bit, began to whine unhappily. I asked her if she wanted to help, and if so, to go wash her hands. So she ran off to wash and came back and happily helped.
She took her job seriously. And we are glad, because she is learning important life skills when she helps in the kitchen.
Borscht making makes for a very happy little gal at our house! And why not?! It's amazingly good stuff!
