The Nessie Ladle Tricks Your Kids Into Helping You Serve Dinner
You’ve followed Obama’s lead and figured out how to be home most nights for dinner, so you’re ready for the next level: getting the kids involved in preparing and serving the meal. That’s where the Nessie ladle ($16) comes in. They might be too young to slice, dice or julienne, but at just about any age, they love them some dinosaurs. Convince them they’re playing with a new dino-toy and they won’t even realize they’re actually helping serve dinner. Seriously, what’s a more kid-friendly kitchen tool than the Nessie ladle? A polar bear ice cream scooper? You plan on serving ice cream for dinner any time this week? Advantage: Nessie.
