Master Chef

"Mama," my ten-year-old daughter said.  "Can you teach my friend and me how to make chicken soup?"

They already had the celery, carrots, and cutting board out. 

"Uh, okay."  I wasn't quite sure what inspired chicken soup, but since it was a healthy dish, I thought I'd educate them on the process.  I told them what to do and supervised them as they did it.

A short while later, a delicious pot of soup simmered on the stove.

Not wanting to be outdone, my seven-year-old son got in on the act.  "I'm going to make something, too!"

He rummaged around and found an assortment of things.  "Ta-dah!" he said as he showed me his creation.  On the plate was a Samoa girl scout cookie, three ice cubes, and two dog biscuits.

What a genious.  A meal fit for a king (and his best friend - a dog named Schultz)!

  4. Kitchen time is something I've been looking forward to with my girl, but I'm afraid that it will be too much like chores. I have fun with it though(not as much as her mom), o I'm sure that that will rub off.

    1. Clean-up can be tough, but my kids are getting better at helping.
