I’m Spotting a Trend
What with the youngest monkey successfully pulling off a meal last night, kidlet #2 spazzed out and wanted to cook dinner tonight. OK. What did she want to cook for dinner, I asked. Grilled chicken breasts (not gonna happen), peas (do-able), and mashed potatoes (also do-able). We decided that Daddy should do the chicken grilling since he’s got way more experience with the grill than she does. She did, however, choose the seasonings that went on them. And besides, there are bugs out there. That left the peas and potatoes. She needed a little help with the manual can opener, but microwaved those peas like a champ. And let’s just say that instant potato flakes are no match for my girl. She whipped their fluffy little butts!
Now, to get the eldest child cooking and then teach all 3 of them how to run the washer and dryer. Yee haw, this is turning out to be a pretty darn productive summer after all!
Until next time,
