Thanks to Brandon's intentionality with Camille, she absolutely loves to be in the kitchen. Every time we start to make food of any kind she wants to help and quickly scoots a kitchen chair to the island and proclaims "I'M HERE! I WANT TO HELP YOU!" And because he is a way better parent than me (and ahem, a better cook than me), he patiently teaches her step-by-step and let's her assist in the process from start to finish.
His/our goal in this effort is two-fold.
1 - To teach her to cook.
2- To expand her palate beyond mac and cheese and chicken nuggets and cheese sticks and pancakes.
A few snapshots of what she's been cooking up lately.
Seasoning chicken. . .
Layering Chicken Pesto Pasta. . .
Costume change and finished product . . .
Quite proud of herself. . .
Baking Parker House Rolls from The Wallstreet Journal. . .
Posing with the finished product and recipe a bit later. . .
Smearing some peanut butter and honey on a sandwich for lunch. . .
It is important to note, before you are too impressed, that she refused to taste the grilled chicken breast and ate a mere one pesto noodle. She did however enjoy her fill of tortillas and rolls (shocker).
Excited to see what she cooks up next!
