One Night a Week Chef

Allow your Senior Chef to choose the menu for one meal a week, as well as help with the shopping list and grocery shopping.

For that one night, he/she are in charge of the family meal. Of course, he/she can enlist help from others but for this night he/she is the head chef.

Ingredients you will need:
  • Any kind of Cheese

First, you need to get the flour tortilla and put the cheese on it. Then you need to fold it in half. After that you put it in the microwave for one minute and enjoy your food!
