Each older child....four of them...have a day to do all the cooking each week. It is a learning opportunity that lets them get to know the basics of cooking, doubling, tripling and even quadrupling some receipes and it builds great independent skills AND let's mom focus on a little one during meal time or help out with school work.
This kiddo knows her way around the kitchen. She cooks one day on her own. And then she helps again on Friday mornings making family breakfast.
Here she is sporting a western look....cute!
Today was learning experience when she put one of her favorite receipes in the oven...Dutch bunny.
As we sat waiting and chatting this morning, I asked if something was burning but saw that we still had quite a few minutes in the timer. What I didn't notice was the temperature my sweet pea put the oven on....5-0-4 degrees! Yikes!
We had extra crispy Dutch bunny this morning. Everyone was a trooper and ate it but none asked for their usual seconds and thirds. That's okay....we have a good one to chuckle at and it was sure better than the brownies mom made camping a few years back that the friendly night visitor...a skunk ....wouldn't even eat!
