Noah helped me make a green tomato cake this morning. Our poor tomatoes got sick from all the rain we've had this summer, so this is part of our last-ditch efforts to save the ones that remained.
We were naming the ingredients as we put them in...
Me: "Muscade [nutmeg]. Can you say muscade?"
Me: "Canelle. [cinnamon]"
Me: "Bicarbonate [baking soda]."
We laboriously went through each syllable, then put two syllables together, and he finally was able to string them all together.
Frederic: "Noah, what is that in English?"
Me: "Noah, say 'baking'..."
Well... a good baker always thinks about the important things!
