Hmm...

The request tonight from my 3 1/2 yr. old, "Mom, I want pasta with red sauce."  Yes, that is exactly what he said.  Andrew looked at me in shock and verified that he had indeed made that request and then burst out laughing. He is now convinced that Patrick has watched too many cooking shows. :) Okay, perhaps...his favorite show is Rachael Ray and he does like to tell me what she is making. 

Patrick and I have a shared interest in all things food and cooking - he asks me almost daily if he can watch a cooking show when he gets up from his nap. (And no, he isn't allowed every day. :))  Honestly though, I would much rather him watch something educational (like a cooking show) than many other programs.  

Budding Chef? Food Critic?  Restaurant Owner?  An aspiring chef and foodie like his momma? :)  None of the above?  Only time will tell.

In the mean time, I treasure the moments we enjoy together - discussing food, watching the food network, and creating new things.  And I love to hear him say, "Mom, can we make that?" or "Mom, I want pasta with red sauce."

That's just great! We'll have to keep Patrick and James close to food. :)

Oh that is SO funny!! Kathryn always asks for "pasta with white cheese" - alfredo is her very favorite food ;). I am lovin' the fact that he asks to watch the food network. He would make a really great chef! I can tell already!
