My pride and joy is visiting with us for a week! Damien is now two months from turning three years old! Now he has been cooking with Gramma since he was 18 months old... so you see he is a seasoned veteran!
His favorite thing to do is play with his Thomas the train... but his second thing to do is Bake!
When the Kitchen Aid gets moved to the center of the counter top... I hear the scooting of the dining room chair, across the kitchen floor! " I got it" exclaimes Damien... " I got my chair!" He immediately pulls the flour canister and the sugar canister away
from the wall!
We have decided to bake cupcakes...http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-cupcakes-with-caramel-frosting/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=chocolate%20cupcakes&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=%2fmenus%2fmain.aspx... we gather all our ingredients and Damien
has a very quizical look on his face... I ask " whats the matter?" He points to the grape jelly and said..." what's jelly for? Then he exclaimed... mayonaise???? I said yep! Damien looked up at my face and gently said.. are we making cupcakes or sammiches?
After accepting the fact that we were indeed making cupcakes... we set to work!
My little man is really getting proficient in helping to measure and count! His pouring skills have really come along... all of the... or most of the ingredients are making it into the mixing bowl! Gramma couldn't be prouder!
Into the oven... our masterpiece goes! Damien loves to watch the batter rise and smell the delectible goodies as the cook! Out of the oven and onto the cooling racks... then Icing!!!
Another great day int the kitchen with my favorite future chef!!!!
