Kirstin: So what do we think?
Ella: We like it!
Kirstin: This was the easiest spaghetti bolognese I have ever made. And there were no hidden vegetables.
Kirstin: Most of the recent recipes I’ve done have had secret, “hidden” vegetables which of course the kids notice straight away and refuse to eat.
Georgia: That failed, then.
Tom: This was great. It’s a really good, classic spag boll.
Georgia: It’s a great victory dinner after killing Ganondorf!
Ella: It’s better than Granny’s Soup! Which refills all your hearts and magic power and lets you do double damage until you take damage. It’s really sad that I know this stuff.
Georgia: It’s not sad. It’s awesome. I’m really sad because I read the wikipedia for Paramore.
Ella: Well I was so sad I knew all about triremes at school today.
Tom: What did you say?
Ella: Miss Devon asked if anyone knew what a trireme was and I said it’s a Greek battleship that can go at 8-9 knots with 26 rowers on the top row, 53 on the middle and 53 on the bottom and a battering ram on one end. They were used by Themistocles in the Battle of Salamis where he built a fleet of 200 within 4 years.
Tom: Oh yeah, Ella. I want seconds.
Kirstin: It had to cook for two hours. It’s pork and mince and–
Georgia: It’s yummy!
Kirstin: Should I make this again, or do you prefer sausage sauce?
Ella and Georgia: This! Make this!
Miles (looking at the computer keyboard): Dad, does that have the alphabet on it?
Tom: Yes. But in the wrong order.
Ella (listening to Bebel Gilberto): What language is this?
