Time after time,
I've blogged about the messes my kids made in the kitchen.
I've had burned steaks and
a melted cutting board.
My burner covers have been charcoaled beyond salvation.
I've had spilled spices and
after all the cleanup.
Homemade Krispy Kreme Donuts?
The best pay-off comes at Thanksgiving.
I haven't cooked in years.
I don't remember the last time I cooked the entire meal.
I don't know if I even have ever cooked the entire meal.
The kids are in the kitchen as soon as those
little hands can grasp the mixer.
Just because a little hair was also wrapped around the mixer,
I didn't banish them from the kitchen.
No sirreee, not me.
Jon was great about CAYG,
Clean As You Go.
By the time dinner was served,
the kitchen was clean,
with a little help from big sister.
Since we eat our meal at 2pm,
he even planned and prepared snacks for the evening,
including this delicious salmon dip.
We make our guests help in the kitchen.
Friend Josiah had to ladle the gravy and walk it to the table.
He also helped with the dishes.
Hubby also made the gravy.
