The meal was delicious. And we had a lot of fun making scallion pancakes and won tons! There was just barely enough space after dinner for a little nibble of sweet cream filled pastries that ZM brought. At the end of the evening, when Zoe had her fill of excitement (and hard work -- she wrapped more won ton than ZM or I did), she did the only sensible thing she could: she curled up in ZM's lap and fell asleep. The kid is wise beyond her years.

Kid-friendly cooking: Won ton
We don't have kids, Mr. Rose and I, nor do our most frequent dinner guests. So the idea of a kid-friendly meal, much less a meal prepared with the aid of a kid, is mostly foreign to me. That is, in part, because we find most children to be fussy eaters and sub-par conversationalists -- when friends bring children to dinner, I feel my anxiety level rising: What do I feed them? What do I say to them? Our house is doggie-proof, but is it kiddie-proof also?
