Interview mum&dad #2 : Emmeline&Nicolas
In this interview you will find good tips about everyday life with children : what to cook for dinner during the week when you have NO time, what to read , what to do during the weekend…
This time, I’ve interviewed Emmeline and Nicolas, from Lyon, in France. They are the parents of Nils, 10 years-old, and Marin, 7 years-old.
- Who cook and what do you cook for dinner?
I usually cook during the week because Nicolas comes later from work. I like to cook vegetable when I have time, like spinach with cream and cheese, because we can reheat it the day after. When I have absolutely no time, I just make some pizza with a ready-made dough and some home-made tomato sauce, ham, chorizo,… Or some ‘croque-monsieur’ with white bread, ham… and a lot of cheese!!
- What do you prepare for snacking?
Some milk rolls filled with Nutella or cakes I buy like Savane or Bonne Maman.
- When the weather is bad, what do you do with children at home?
We play card games like Time’s family up or Pipolo. We also love watching movies like a good old Charlie Chaplin or Despicable Me.
- What children books do you like above all?
Our sons love all Roald Dahl stories (Mathilda, Big Friendly giant, …). Nils also likes Diary of a wimpy kid by Jeff Kinney and Tobie Lolness by Thimothée de Fombelle (French author). Marin loves comic books like Asterix, Lucky Luke or Pavillon Noir by Alain Surget.
- What are your favourite restaurants?
We love an Indian restaurant in Lyon called Siva Siva : we’re mad about their cheese nans! We also like Italian food, especially in Casa Nostra, a restaurant located in Limonest, near Lyon.
- Where do you go with children during the weekend?
We love going to the swimming pool during the winter. It’s a big aquatic centre where there are also wellness installations… A pleasant place for children AND parents also!
