This will pay off in a couple of years

I know I cooked more than Bri does when I was thirteen, perhaps because I didn’t spend all my time texting or on facebook.  Last week she “taught” Jake how to make chocolate chip cookies.  They were yummy but they made them backwards.  I asked her yesterday if she wanted to learn how to make peach cobbler.  She didn’t.  So, I decided to teach Jake.  He is more interested than Bri is in cooking and is more likely to say yes if I ask him.  He agreed to help even though he doesn’t like cobbler.  Since we were on a roll I taught him how to make spaghetti, too.
 
Bonus:  Jake tried the cobbler and liked it.

Always a bonus when they like it. :-) I enjoy your positive posts; they are a nice antidote to some blogs and sites where it isn't at all pleasant.

Hope you have had a good start to your week. Maybe Bri will be interested in making cake? Cheesecake, even better.

She did actually make a cheesecake the day after thanksgiving -- Will took it outside and dumped it on the grass. Poor girl! Today he made a mixture of cocoa powder, dish washing soap and walnuts. So, as you can see Jake isn't the only one interested in cleaning.

Cooking. I meant cooking. And yes JD, I'll make pie.

:-) You were probably thinking of all the cleaning their cooking lets you do!
