“You got it!” Erin excites. “9 times 6 is 54”

“Now whats 9 times 7?” Erin asks.

“Uhhh….” Giles holds out his hand and puts down his pointer finger of his right hand. “63!”

“Perfect!” Erin says. “Keep using that trick and you’ll get all the 9 times tables.”

Tiana walks into the kitchen and see’s her mother.

Taking Andy’s advice to worry less, Pocahontas talks to her daughter.

“Hey, Tiana. Would you like to learn a new recipe today?”

Tiana gets excited. “Yes! What are we going to make today mommy?”

“Something simple but challenging too.” Pocahontas tells her. “So you have to pay attention.”

“You got it, mama.” Tiana replies.

“Good.” Pocahontas says as she takes out the ingredients. “Today we’ll be making Fish Tacos.”

12-24-16_12-57-36 AM.jpg

“First, you prepare the vegetables.” Pocahontas says.

12-24-16_1-00-31 AM.jpg

“Ahh… ” Tiana groans as Pocahontas moves on to the onion. “My eyes.”

12-24-16_1-04-06 AM.jpg

“Onions do that to you. But in order to limit the amount they sting your eyes you run them under water as you are chopping them.” Pocahontas advises. “But when you have been cooking as long as I have, they don’t bother you anymore.”

“Run Onions under water.” Tiana restates. “Got it!”

12-24-16_1-04-38 AM.jpg

Next, Pocahontas prepares the fish.

“The way the dish turns out depends on the type of fish you use.” Pocahontas tells her. “I like Tilapia, so that’s the kind of fish we are using.” She starts to cut it.

“So you can use different type of fish in this meal?” Tiana asks. “How many fish are there?”

“I’m not sure, dear.” Pocahontas says. “I just stick to what I know.”

Hmm..  Tiana thinks. I wonder.

12-24-16_1-04-49 AM.jpg

Pocahontas continues. “After we slice the fish into chunks, we season it, combine it with the vegetables, and put it on the stove. We let it cook until the color turns brown and the outside becomes crispy.”

“mmhmm..” Tiana observes.

12-24-16_1-09-40 AM.jpg

“Then you take it off the stove and add the taco shell.” Pocahontas puts the fish in the shells. “Now you have fish tacos.”

“Mmm…” Tiana looks with satisfaction. “It smells so good, mama.”

Pocahontas giggles. “Wait until you taste it.”
