Chop chop!

Just what does a full, messy baby look like? Well, I'm glad you asked. Here's The Messy Man himself, having just polished off an entire cup of smashed yams/bananas/barley cereal:

This came in the mail yesterday. I was beyond excited:

Greg bought it for me from Viking:

I love it! All of the things I cook are on the prep heavy side of things, since there's so much chopping and such, so this makes my job SO much easier. This knife happily made short work of this entire bowl of veggies for Medditerranian Roasted Vegetables:

Yes, Andrew knew he was being photographed, and chose to be a little snot.

("Andrew, put this stuff in the yellow bowl...ok, now put this in the red garbage bowl in the sink" "Wed bowl. Yeyow bowl.")

We then mixed up a bowl of spices to toss it with; cumin, cinnamon, paprika, turmeric, cayenne, lemon juice and oil:

Andrew, of course, had to taste the spices. Not only that, but he also ate some raw, sliced garlic. ("Need some!" "Andrew, this is kind of spicy..." "Need more spicy!" "Ok..." "Need more?")

After preping a dish this fragrant, the hardest thing to do is wait for it to be done, especially when you have a light inside of your new oven (the waiting is done with your cheetah, of course).

Note: This dish was then eaten over cous cous and sprinkled liberally with sliced almonds and sultanas (golden raisens). Yummy!

Wow, nice Viking, but our Cutco are way better. Actually, I've never tried Viking, so why am I talking? Hmm...I'll have to get back to you on that one.
Anyway, YOU know that Elijah is cute, and I know, but in that picture, he looks a bit like John Goodman.
How are the two creatures? Does Andrew actually speak whole sentances, or is it still, "Hole dat"?
