A sweet angel blessed the little’s this past Christmas with their own kitchen tools, cook book, apron and chef hat.
If you’ve been reading here long then you know that the little’s love cooking and baking, so they were beyond thrilled about these gifts.
Just in case you didn’t know…Little man pretends he is Emeril. Little lady pretends she is Rachel Ray.
Cooking shows are some of their favorite shows to watch. How many 4 & 5 year olds do you know that ask to watch Emeril, Rachel Ray or Guy Fieri?
We want them to have a love for creating healthy(for the most part) food that tastes good. We make most of what we eat from scratch which means we spend a lot of time making messes together in the kitchen.
Sometimes when we are working in the kitchen together, we pretend we are a cooking show on TV. We call our cooking show“Our messy kitchen”.
Getting more props for our show was just the thing to inspire us to get creating more messes.
they went through it page by page, over and over again, trying to decide what they wanted to make first.
Little Emeril worked hard in the kitchen preparing breakfast for us.
She worked hard in the kitchen…
and had fun making a beautiful mess. I did not notice the bottle of wine on the counter until I put the picture on this post. No worries, little lady was not adding wine to the pizza, nor drinking it.
My grandson A-man loves to help grandma in the kitchen too. On Tuesday morning, while the little’s were gone to school, he got a chance to be a “cooker” too. He made monster cookies for our pet monster Franklin. Who, by the way is still living with us and is responsible for most of the noise, messes and chaos at this zoo. Darn monsters.
We also now have a pet ghost named Felicia that lives with us and the little’s tell me that Franklin and Felicia might get married. Make that 2 weddings in our family this year.
Little A-man worked happily in the kitchen. Making messes is his middle name.
Of course he couldn’t resist sampling the cookie dough.
We are having so much fun with our new kitchen tools that every day there is talk about what we should make.
We are going to be making these next.
Some day when I have a video camera I will tape one of our shows so that you can see our fun in action. The little’s talk about having a real cooking show some day. I have no doubt that this could happen.
This post is dedicated to the angel that blessed us with these gifts. You know who you are.
From all the cooks of “Our Messy Kitchen”
…thank you for giving to us and for helping us to create memories and lots of messes in our kitchen. Look at the smiles you have put on their faces and you will know how much you have touched our hearts. Thank you!
Until next time, hugs & love, Lori
