Emerging Chefs

One of the girls favorite things to do is cook and I have been trying to give them a little more freedom in the kitchen. I admit this is not easy for me. I hate the mess and it is sometimes so hard to not step in and do it myself, but like I said, I am trying.

Last weekend they wanted to make dinner and since I didn't have anything planned yet, I took a deep breath and gave them the okay. And then, for the most part, I stayed out of the kitchen. (It is easier if I don't watch.)


They decided on meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and fruit salad. And becasue I was giving them free reign they also made kool-aid to drink (yuck...I can't stand that stuff!!) and orange floats for desert.

They put the meatloaf in these cute little individual serving size pans, which usually just sit in the back of the cupboard feeling unloved and neglected.


With the exception of the kool-aid (which everyone else liked just fine), I thought everything turned out delish!  Great job girls!

And here is Robert, watching and waiting and hoping that somehow, someway his big sisters would find something, anything for him to help with.

And they did.  What good sisters they are.
