Cooking Instruction

Yesterday afternoon Agnes and I visited our granddaughter Leya and those two people she lives with...oh, yes - that would be our daughter and son-in-law. Sorry, I was distracted.

Yasmin was baking some muffins, and Leya was in the full-up "this-is-really-neat-I-want-to-help" mode. Sitting her on the counter to observe wasn't enough, as Leya loudly insisted on taking part in the operation, and so Yasmin decided to meet her halfway - she dug out her biggest steel mixing bowl, dumped in a mixture of cornstarch and water, added a whisk, and put it on the kitchen floor for Leya to work on.

You can only imagine the results...

Let's get started...

You really need to mix your batter energetically...

No, Leya, let's not carry it around...just keep it on the floor, please...


Now, we're getting somewhere!

Hmmm...needs more sugar...

Time to give Papa a hug...

This is a bigger job than I thought...maybe Papa and Opa can help...

And the aftermath...
If the White House needs a new pastry chef, they may need to wait a few years until the skill catches up to the energy.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

Is this a Rachel Ray in training? Move over, Paula Deen (Paul's Home Cooking TV show); there's a new Cookin' Kid on the block.

Darling pictures of a beautiful little girl! I'm glad I wasn't the one that had to clean up the mess. Been there, done that enough times already.

And did the Opa jeans end up as 'decorated' as her's? ;-))

Amanda said...

LOL! It looks like everybody had a lot of fun. Sometimes, its best to just forget about keeping a toddler clean.
