Assistant Chef

I have tried to engage little man in "assisting" me in more and more things lately. He has never ceased to amaze me in his abilities for his age and more so his willingness to help. Tonight, we were making dinner and he kept saying, "mama, up!" I went and grabbed his stool and let him help me put the veggies in the pan (not turned on of course!) We have tried to buy the veggies when they went on big sales and eat them right away, cut the rest, and put in baggies ready to cook for a meal down the road. This has saved us so much money and makes cooking dinner in a pinch do-able!

First he would grab the squash i just cut...


....separate them in individual pieces...


...inspect for quality control...


... then place neatly in the baggie- ALL by himself.


(of course, not all survived)
