I have to tell you about what happened this week, about this surprise that my kiddos made for me . . . and for you!
After this week's Quick Tip Tuesday video on Facebook, my daughters were inspired to make a smoothie (and they even shared some with me - yay!). Not only was it DELICIOUS, but because of their creativity and recent enthusiasm for time-lapse videography, they made this little treat for all of you to enjoy:
For the recipe, they used cherries, spinach, and whole milk this time around. You will notice that since they are getting involved in the recipe-building aspect of my job lately, they created it to be fully amenable to tastes, dietary needs, and availability of products. How cute is that? I really can't decide which is making me smile bigger - the video, or this hand-written gem:
This is my 5th grader's handwriting . . . did anyone else write their lowercase "a" that way when they were about that age? I know I did! Although, I must admit, I don't think I remembered that about myself until she started doing it. Motherhood makes me laugh sometimes.
Aaaaaaaaaanyway, back to the point . . . they have both really been enjoying time in the kitchen lately and this has me thinking about more cool foods they make on a regular basis, and about how recounting their experiences might help or encourage you and your kids to explore your own kitchen more often.
I have a few ideas, but would love to hear some of yours.
What foods do you currently make with your kids?
Do they make any on their own?
If so, what?
Let me know your answers to those questions in the comment section below, and let's do this!!
