Here is chef Benji cooking on the cardboard stove at Nana’s house. I drew this with many references to the real one in the kitchen, so it has lots of details. I don’t know if you can tell, but in the top picture, he carefully “turned” the burner knob while making a ticking/whooshing noise quite recognizable to any user of a gas stove.
The chef likes to make (paper) fish fried in (imaginary) butter, (imaginary) tea, and car soup, all of which he serves on brightly-colored plastic plates. It looks like when I took these pictures, he also cooked some big plastic Easter egg omelette – yum.
He also likes to “pour” tea from the teapot into cups, and then… Oops! -“spill” the tea onto his head. I encourage this because I figure better imaginary liquids than real ones. (So far this has worked. I keep wondering when he’ll decide to try this with real liquids.)

Greatgrandpa Archie must be chuckling in heaven as he watches the antics of this little guy!
We won’t hardly know him when we get back, he’s growing up so much and so fast!
