Hi, it's me, Nina from Sesame Street, and you're listening to "Goodnight, World", a sleepcast where your friends at Sesame Street and Headspace Studios help you get ready for bed. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Goodnight, world. Tonight's episode is... Gabrielle and Elmo help in the Cozy Kitchen. Hi, it's me, Nina, your friend from Sesame Street. I'm glad you're here. Today, I'm in the community garden with Elmo and Gabrielle. We're picking vegetables for Nina's dinner with her brother and his family. And Elmo's helping. Thanks for helping, you two. I'm so excited to see my brother Dave, his husband Frank, and their daughter, my niece, mi sobrina, Mia. Family dinners are the best. They sure are. My Grandma Nell makes a big dinner every Sunday night for my family and I always get to help. Oh, that sounds fun. Yeah, she's shared her homemade mac and cheese with me before. Grandma Nell is a great cook. Mhm, she sure is. So what else do we need to pick, Nina? Let me check the list. We've already picked vegetables for a big salad and now we have three ingredients left to pick. Or pull out of the ground, like these crunchy carrots. Do we need carrots, Nina? We sure do. Will you please pick six carrots for my brother Dave's yummy pasta recipe? Let's pick. And let's count together. One, two, three, four, five, six. Six carrots all together. Muy bien. Great job. Let's put them in the basket. What else do we need? Along with the carrots, Dave likes to put bell peppers and broccoli in the pasta. Ooh, I love bell peppers. They come in beautiful colors, red, green, and yellow. And did you know bell peppers are fruit? Because they have seeds inside. Wow, that's so cool. Yeah. How many bell peppers do we need? Five, please. Let's pick. And let's count. One, two, three, four, five. Five bell peppers all together. And into the basket. And now the last thing we need for dinner, one bunch of broccoli. Yeah. Elmo loves broccoli. They look like little trees. And broccoli is delicious. Here you go, Nina. One delicious bunch of broccoli. Into the basket it goes. Thanks for helping me pick all this food for my family dinner. You're welcome. You're welcome. But Nina, all this picking made Elmo's body feel a little tired. Yeah, I can understand why. We worked hard today. We used our eyes to find the veggies in the garden, our hands to pick them, and our arms and legs to walk and carry the basket. And it was fun, but Elmo's right. My hands are a little tired. I have an idea. How about we take a little rest over at this picnic table? You can imagine your own family dinner. Oh yeah, that's a great idea, Nina. Can I imagine my Grandma Nell is cooking? Of course. You and Elmo can imagine that...
