Cooking Together

Alёna and Arosha cooking.Aroshka and I cooked lagman today. Well, he was mostly observing, but I am sure he would have gladly participated if I only let him!

Still cooking.His presence made the cooking process more fun for me — I was narrating all my actions and singing songs along the way (Danya was watching him when I was cooking meat and onions though, since I did not want to accidentally touch the baby with dirty hands).

Lagman.Lagman came out well — the last time I cooked it, it was a bit too bland, so this time around I added lots of red pepper flakes, garlic and cumin. It was yum-yum spicy! I used a combination of Tatiana’s recipe which I previously posted on our blog and Mrs. Mansurov’s recipe which she posted on her blog with great pictures illustrating the process as always. I did not bother with hand-made noodles, but substituted with store-bought egg ones, and they were almost as good.

Local Toys "Я" Us.Yesterday we finally went to Toys “Я” Us and got a safety gate to separate the kitchen. Aroshka is not trying to get there yet, but I wanted to have everything in place by the time that he does. For some reason, we bought an extra-tall gate, so after Danya has installed it, we got slightly worried if Shublik will be able to get in and out of the kitchen.

Our new kitchen gates.Luckily, our cat is very agile and can jump over it with minimum effort. We keep the door open for now though — no point to go through the hustle of opening it every time we visit the kitchen. And yes — I go there pretty often, since I am one hungry breastfeeding woman! I just hope that when I am done nursing, my appetite will go back to normal. There is no way I can eat like that and not get fat (while not being Aroshka’s field kitchen at the same time).
