Cool weather & time, glorious time led us to an impromptu Cooking Camp at our house this week.
It was nothing fancy, but there was no rushing, and we made it up as we went along -- so it fit easily with anything else we had going on.
The number one (unspoken) rule for me was:
Enjoy our time in the kitchen together.
Cooking Camp wasn't on a checklist; it was just one of life's lovely little bonuses that I had time to notice because we slooooowed down.
"What should we make?"
"Apple pie & peanut butter cookies!"
We added some other dishes, too, as time and supplies on hand allowed.
|Linus "smashing to smithereens" the |
peaches for peach crisp.
The kitchen is another place we can all
add our own unique flavor to our family life.
|Making Banana Coins meant both kids |
learning to use a new kitchen tool.
And, our meals were more interesting this week
(considering many of them had fruit in them, why
reserve them for dessert only?)
Crush graham crackers in a small ziplock.
Add equal part ground flaxseed meal & mix.
Add sliced bananas & shake to coat.
Practice with your tongs to remove : )
Stir together 2/3 cup vanilla yogurt & 1/3 cup (thick) orange juice.
Pour into popsicle molds & freeze.
