Gabe is a whole different story. He is just learning his skills in the kitchen. Gabe is a really smart kid he just needs a little more supervision in the kitchen because he is still the kid that will grab a hold of the hot pan handle with no oven mit. Ouch! I want to give him more independce in the kitchen though because that is important to his self esteem. For christmas I wanted to give him his own cookbook that would assure more independence for him. I spent a few days searching and I found The Do It Myself Cookbook. What a great cook book, the recipes are so easy for the kids to follow on their own.
As you can see he takes his cooking very seriously, look at the focus on his face. He really loves being able to cook. It is one of his goals to work on this year.
Showing off the completed sandwich. He is very proud of his work. I mean wouldn't you be look how good that sandwich looks. It was very yummy too!
On a side note the kids did all of their grocery shopping for this recipe and stayed well within my budget. I was thinking of trying to make a cooking segment each week. It will feature recipes that the kids have made on their own or with very little help. What do you think, Let me know if you like this idea.
