Making cookies…

December 23rd, 2008 No comments

… we had quite the cookie / candy making session. All the kids got involved in taking off the wrappers from the hershey kisses, while Jill and Brianna seemed to just turn out more and more cookies as the night went on.

After we got the kids to bed, I brought out an enormous supply of legos that I had acquired via freecycle (check it out if you don’t know what freecycle is). I washed them all – which took quite some time, but after I was done, we had a huge supply of legos that I’m sure will get much use out of them from the kids (and me) over the years to come.

Here’s a few shots from our activities:

The kids had a blast unwrapping hershey kisses for the cookies. I’m sure more than one got eaten ;)

Jill and Brianna making peanut brittle — turned out quite good!

Quite the process to clean tons and tons of legos ;)

Look at all those cookies — we made 340+ cookies when all was said and done. Most of which went to several families and friends that we know.

The Chefs ;)

The Little Chef\'s

There were some little chefs (and a big chef) at our house tonight.  We were making a masterful meal for the queen of the home – our very own Mommy Chef.  It was Mommy Chef’s birthday, so what better way to celebrate than to make a meal for her!

Mommy Chef wanted to eat an Indian dish for dinner, so she searched far and wide, until she found two recipes that she wanted to make for dinner.  To the little chefs came the duty of making Naan.  This is a very special bread that we have never made before.  Boy was it fun to make!

There was an AWESOME chef named Michael.  He was a master of the sword (ok, the butter knife).  He wowed us all with his excellent skills – and he served as our master bread cutter for the night.  You wouldn’t want to run into him in a dark alley in the middle of the night.

There was a super duper sweet chef named Kaylee Ann ;)  As you can see – she loves cooking, and especially flattening dough before placing into the oven :)  She added the sweet spices necessary to make our bread complete.

Dough Boy could not keep the dough off his face / mouth / hands / etc…  He was excellent at kneading the dough, getting it to the perfect consistency before tossing it into the oven ;)

And then there was Tiny Chef… kind of like our little wonder dog – he was watching all of us, and helping keep us all safe ;)  He even saved all the food from burning, at least that is what sweet chef tells me.

After making a healthy batch for Mommy Chef to enjoy, we decided to make our own ‘lil masterpieces to cook in the toaster oven… yummy to our tummies ;)

And that is the end of our story this evening… we hope you enjoyed this little episode of “Little Chefs”, we sure enjoyed being Chefs!

Ohh yes – and Tiny Chef worked so hard… well – he fell asleep after all was said and done ;)
