My Little Chefs

Howdie! I hope that every one's week is off to a great start! We have been having the most fabulous weather here! I'm loving it but feeling a bit nervous that winter will start sooner rather than later. Some trees are already changing colors! So - because the fresh air is moving through our house (yes - our windows are open!!) and the fact that I motivated myself to do some cardio-sculpting with good ole' Denise Austin I'm feeling just downright CHEERFUL!! =) The girl's and I had ourselves a cooking morning. I attempted THREE different crafts and each one of them ended up in the garbage. Instead we decided to put our fresh blueberries to good use. We made a blueberry struessel coffee cake. They also helped me make some BBQ sauce when I
discovered I didn't have a bottle of it in the pantry. Dang it! I much prefer bottled and boxed stuff (cake and muffin mixes, pancake mixes, brownie mix) from the grocery store to homemade stuff. Maybe it is less healthy but it's SO much more tasty! That's what matters - right?!!

Getting started - YES. Anika is still in her pjs. I'm well aware of their ragamuffin status today. I don't look any better! That's a typical Monday for you. =)


Anybody want to come over for a piece now that you know my kid's fingers have been all over in it? Haha! Don't worry - I don't make a habit of letting my kids put their hands all over the food - unless I know we are the only ones who will be ingesting it.



Sampling the finished product after baths - YUMMY!



Keslie decided that dipping her carrots in the jelly and peanut butter was a tastier option. Haha!

I'm jealous of the weather! It is scorching here! But I'm afraid I'll be the happy one this winter. Cute pics! I bet the cake was delish!

What a great activity! I recently started doing cooking activities with Emma once each week.... I've discovered that Emma just LOVES being in the kitchen and getting involved. I can see that Emma is not alone in this. ;) Your girls are just so cute... Keslie is just turning into a real beauty!
