One of the parenting goals I have for my children is to mold them into at least proficient cooks by the time they leave the house. We all knew those guys in college that had absolutely no housekeeping skills and could barely boil water to make pasta. (Believe me guys, housekeeping skills and culinary skills are attractive to women, slovenliness, not so much.) My five year old is getting to the point where he can handle actual cooking now, as opposed to just stirring, and so my quest this summer is to find some recipes that he can make himself. I scored big for the mom team in finding this recipe. It was easy enough that he could do all of the steps by himself while I stood close by to just give directions and put the pan into the oven. He was so proud of himself and ate a double helping of his meal. He even wanted to make dinner the next night! Now I must find some more kid friendly recipes to harness this energy!
