Quinoa and Kale salad!

(Watching in amazement as I pour a cup of white wine into the skillet)
Jack: Mama, what are you doing? 
Mama: I'm deglazing the pan. 
Jack: Deglazing? 
Mama: Mmhmm, it's what makes the sauce so delicious. 
Jack: Oh. (pause) Can you deglaze that thing then? Please?
(Gestures disdainfully at the quinoa & kale salad.) 
Not my best work, apparently. 
Everyone has an off day, even mama.

  1. Cute! Someday he'll appreciate the quinoa salad... right around the time he realizes that deglazing his limited powers ;)
