Meet Moozie's Staff
...or...Goldilocks and the Two Dorks.
Meet my Sous Chefs for today!
Alexander is 14, thinks he's goth (but he's really a poser), is a gifted cellist and a general pain in my ass. He's also developing into quite a cook in his own right - I'm not worried about leaving Alex in charge for a little while, because he can follow a recipe with ease and has even branched out into some kitchen improvisation.
Ernest is 10, a budding classical guitarist, video game freak, and terror of the neighborhood - it's always the quiet ones you have to watch out for! Though he still has some difficulties seeing over the stove, Ernie still enjoys puttering in the kitchen. He is currently annoyed with his knife work, but has otherwise mastered prep work with ease.
Naturally, both Monsters enjoy eating, which is the primary reason they were let into the kitchen at a young age. I gave up kicking them out of the kitchen fairly quickly, allowing Alex to prepare his first dish (scrambled eggs) at the age of 3.
Today, they're going to help AND apparently monkey around.
