real life tot kitchen: dinosaur soup


It’s very rare for me to find a book I’ll finish in one sitting, but when I came across Dinosaur Soup in a gift shop this summer, I finished my first book in one standing. This collection of 50 recipes written by children is so irresistible I read the whole thing while waiting to check out, and rue the day I didn’t purchase it right there! Luckily I tracked it down at Bob’s Your Uncle and was ecstatic to learn that they’re currently taking recipe submissions for the follow-up book slated to be published later this year.

What a cool thing to find. It is so nice to find unexpected treasures unexpectedly.

I’m glad that you were able to find the book again.

How neat! I would love to read some of those recipes. They must be a hoot!

They ARE a hoot! I brought it into work and everyone I showed it to wants a copy. Here’s a recipe that is scheduled to appear in the new book:

Stir Fried Shrimp & Veggies
By Tania, Age 4

Peel beige shrimp.
Put shrimp in there.
Next, peas.
Next, that’s it.

I laugh out loud every time I read this thing. It’s a real crowd pleaser!
