My girls love to help out in the kitchen. They get all excited anytime they see me begin to cook. I like to think that this is because they believe I’m an all star chef , but in reality it’s just because they want to cook too!
Oh well! LOL
Though there are times I wish I had three sets of hands, sometimes these itty bitty ones aren’t the most helpful! I’m sure many of you Mamas can relate!
I try to find simple things the girls can help out with because I don’t want to discourage their love of cooking.
I also don’t want to miss out on spending quality time with them! So, what I try to do is find small things that they can help with.
This weekend we decided to make some corn bread. I measured out all of the ingredients and Emma poured them (with some assistance) into the mixing bowl. I began stirring to make sure things got mixed together. Once things were mixed a bit Emma took over so I could grease the corn bread molds.
Once everything was mixed and the molds were ready, Emma began her second task. She used a tablespoon and filled the molds with the batter.
She did such a wonderful job!
Lilly helped us by picking out the best holiday music on the iPad!
Thanks Lilly! The Michael Bublé Christmas Album put us all in a festive mood!
Once the pans were filled we put them in the oven.
Looks like Emma will have to make the cornbread for Thanksgiving this year!
