Made a cooking video. Rachael Ray makes it look so easy! Try talking, peeling an eggplant, looking in the camera, and keeping your olive oil from getting too hot. Well I could not do it–but it sure was fun! Cooking is a great way to learn. Some of you may use cooking to teach your kids math, or hand-eye coordination, or to develop those fine motor skills, or even social skills. And you guessed it–you can learn Spanish while cooking too. Cooking helps us learn the command forms of verbs like: stir it, mix it, cut them, peel it. It also provides opportunity to learn numbers and counting. Check out this video and see what else you can learn or pick up on!
The recipe I used is from Life as Mom a great website/blog about everything mom! Jessica Fischer actually has some cookbooks published, and she blogs regularly with great family-friendly and healthy recipes. I have translated her Vegetable Bolognese with Eggplant recipe into Spanish. If you are a mom, or someone who loves to plan your meals, check out her free meal plans and grocery lists too!
