Meal for Home…work

So we’ve learned that “Home Ec” has now been renamed to “Family & Consumer Sciences”… well alrightey then!  Anyhoo… Cole’s assignment this week was to prepare a meal for his family.  He had to choose a main course and at least two of the following:  salad, side dish or dessert.

Being the adventurous young man that he is, he chose to make Grilled Chicken Marsala, Roasted Rosemary Potatoes and Chocolate Ice Cream.  …all from scratch!

We started with the chocolate ice cream on Saturday evening (since it has to sit in the refrigerator overnight).  He does a fantastic job of measuring and making sure the ingredients are properly appointed.  Separating eggs was a little bit of an adventure though, and he’s got a little work to do on stirring, but it turned out great.  Once soft-frozen, we added some Hershey’s milk chocolate chunks and raspberry baker’s jam (thanks, Chef Seth!).  If that sounds familiar, yeah, it is just like Bruster’s Chocolate Raspberry Truffle.

Sunday afternoon he made the potatoes and Chicken Marsala.  Check out the pictures, the kid did a great job…he just wasn’t excited about getting his picture taken.
