Penguin loves to help us cook. Stirring, measuring (well, pouring in what we've measured), scooping - it's all fun and good. I remember how much Pumpkin loved to help me make bread when we were in Ireland & Penguin loves baking just as much.
Today we opted to make some cookies.
Me: Ok, now it's time to add the eggs.
Penguin: We need two eggs, right, Mommy?
M: We do use two eggs for our chocolate chip cookies, don't we? But is a recipe for different cookies and it needs 4 eggs.
Me: Ok, time for the vanilla. We need two teaspoons of vanilla. (measuring & adding them)
Penguin: Oh! We usually need just 1 banilla for cookies.
M: That's right. Boy, you really know a lot about cooking already. Maybe you'll be a chef or a baker when you grow up.
P: Yeah, I'm donna be a cooker when I growed up!
