London, ON, March 2009

About this photo: We're exploring the kitchen this week as part of our latest Thematic Photographic. Please click here if you've got some culinary-photographic inspiration going on.
Our kids have been spending more time helping out in the kitchen of late. While the messiness factor often shoots off the chart when they're emulating Wolfgang Puck, it's kinda neat to watch them try their hand at something that comes to their mom so naturally. The look on Noah's face and the pride in his voice made the potato dish taste even better than it usually did. The apples have apparently landed happily close to the proverbial tree. A good thing on so many levels.

Your turn: Please suggest a caption for this photo. You can be literal, witty, poignant, or any other emotion you wish. You may enter as many times as you want to because, frankly, we love to witness intense fits of creativity. Simply click the Comment link below to get started. I'll post the winner next Sunday.

About last week's photo of an airplane at rest: I'll grab any excuse to snap a picture of anything remotely related to aviation. Thankfully, you're all just as into the flying thing. This week's honorable menschens are:
  • Terri: "Fly by the seat of your pants."
  • David: "Air head onboard."
  • Daryl: "Ground control to Major Tom..."
  • Moments in time: "Where did you leave your lunchbox?"
  • Mojo: "Good and Prop-er."
  • Anne: "Room with a view."
Linda's "Airline bailout" is as memorable as it is timely. Linda's not your average blogger. She has shepherded her military family across the planet, always managing to keep countless balls in the air no matter where they land. She's taught me that family and community can be just as deeply experienced no matter where you are, or for how long. Please drop by and share a happy with her.

Oh yum!! This reminds me of the time when my son was taught by our neighbor to cook latkes, and she "hired" him to cook them for her annual Hannukah party every year!

Chip off the old butcher block!

No I am not calling myself a butcher block...old yes, butcher block no.

I love their help....would it be faster on my own? Oh yes, but not nearly as fun.

Hi Carmi

With my apologies to the chef:

"If I use enough pepper they won't be able to taste the worms I put in"

"It says 500gm of extra fine diced peppers ~ does that mean 500 turns of the pepper mill?"

"I don't think my sister will notice the pepper in her apple pudding"

"Mum always puts this in"
