As part of our homeschool curriculum, I am teaching Rea to cook. She has taken a liking to creating things in the kitchen.
We picked up a kids' cookbook at Barnes and Noble the other day. She has read every page. And she has marked a number of things for us to try. Here is the first one:
Rea named her's Sloppy Reas because when I make sloppies, we call them Sloppy Stus. She said this batch was better tasting than mine. I concur they were delicious.
She thought it was interesting to stir the meat (not a huge fan of working at the stove yet).
She did enjoy searching the kitchen for all the ingredients. And she loved measuring out the wet and dry ingredients. We even did some math (don't point that out to her) with fractions. Woo hoo! Total win.
Not A Chef
I like to cook, but I am no chef. I don't have the vision to create masterpieces from scratch. I am excellent at following recipes and tweaking them to fit my pantry or family. And I have a great collection of recipes to share.
