friday finds: pasta thief

Her cheeks may be chubby, but not that chubby.  This Friday finds us in the kitchen, both before and after E’s Feast of Thanks at her school today.  F’s favorite thing to find herself doing is cooking.  “I cook with you?” she asks anytime you get remotely close to the kitchen.  This morning we were making a pasta dish and corn muffins.  The pasta was cooked, the sauce was simmering on the stove, and she was supposed to be tearing the spinach leaves into bite sized pieces.  Usually tearing is great fun but today there was a distraction.  
Proper technique…
…but don’t let the busy hands fool you.  The cheeks don’t lie.

She rallied a bit for the cornbread.  One time I taught her to whisk to the tune of Ring Around The Rosy, and now she’ll do nothing else.  You should see the pouf of flour when “they all fall down”.

And after a busy morning, we found ourselves feasting with friends that are like family, and expressed our gratitude to the school community that we are so lucky to be a part of. 

I hope you found something good to eat (or bake) today.  Friday full cheeks, perhaps.  Share if you’d like.
