Masterchef 1


Cooking seems to be such an important activity for the twins. They love being in the kitchen and watching the action. They want to taste stuff, they are curious about what is inside an egg, about what a vegetable smells like…so a few days ago we decided to let them help us with dinner.

Dinner was simple, soup and pizza. we picked up the small sized individual kiddie portion pizzas for them. They watched us make the pizza sauce and identified the ingredients that were going in. (baby amu made off with one tomato in the midst of the action)

Then we turned the oven on and the boys spread the pizza sauce on the bread. Then they put some shredded chicken and topped it off with grated mozzarella cheese. There were other toppings like olives which they tasted and decided against.

Not only were they super excited about helping make their own dinner, they actually polished it all off with no reminders or requests to eat without wasting.


About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
