Lately, Abby has been in love with 'Ratatouille'. We have not seen the movie, but are reading the chapter book, and she found a mouse finger puppet she has named 'Ratatouille' and carries everywhere. We've listend to the soundtrack, and even have the cookbook from the library. In the story, Remy is a french rat, who becomes a gourmet chef. Ratatouille is actually a French Mediterranean stew. The kids and I shopped for the all vegetable ingredients this afternoon and then the kids helped cut everything up. It was delicious!
