Fridays are “Cooking with Andy and Alton Brown Fridays” from now on. I love this part of homeschooling 6th grade. The boys get an awesome dose of real science AND learn how to cook. Now that I have my new little camera, I can document the experience.
Pre-camera, Andy made seared duck breasts, baked potatoes and sauteed green beans for me and his godmother (and eventually his brothers as they trickled home). Pretty impressive. Last weekend, Andy learned from Alton and Mike how to grill a perfect strip steak. It was perfect.
This week, as an addendum to the grilling, Andy learned to broil. He chose Alton Brown’s recipe called “Get Breakfast.” No pictures this week, but I have to say, broiled hash browns mixed with spinach later topped by salsa, cheese and broiled eggs???? Keeper.
Next Friday (promise with pictures!) we’re roasting something . . .
