The Chef Pearl

It was Pearl’s food week . They have been learning about different occupations . And she had to dress like a chef.

We hunted for a kid’s apron for two days and then decided to cut short an adult’s apron and to make a shower cap out of it even though what she wanted was butler’s cap. She went to school with bread slices, butter, onion and spoons and plates to make sandwiches .

I was too busy to take any snaps . So declared Ruby as the official photographer of my blog which immediately put him in action .

Snaps were taken in no time .

And for two three days , they bustled around in the kitchen like bees in bee hives.

They made sandwiches with tomato, onion , cucumber and god knows what .

And we made some paneer stir fry . Pearl helped me to chop the coriander leaves. And as the refrigerator is kept in the other room she was my errand girl. Snaps were taken by our newly appointed photographer .
