master chef in the making

Oscar loves to help.  With anything, really.  He really likes to help cook though.  This makes both of us quite happy as I have always loved cooking, and Greg has become quite the cook himself.  It is a skill we want both of our kiddos to be comfortable doing and enjoy. 

I planned for yesterday to be a bit of a baking day.  The weather was begging for open windows and lots of baking during nap time.  I knew I wanted to make some gluten free cookies for a coworker’s birthday (don’t worry, this girl will always love her gluten, but the coworker can’t have it).  We had to stop at the store for a few things after preschool.  When I put chocolate chips in the cart, Oscar said, “Mom, when we get home, can we eat these?  I don’t want to put them in anything though.”  When we got home and I put our groceries away, the muffin wrappers fell out of the cabinet.  Oscar asks, ” You gonna make me ’nuffins’ Mommy?”  How can you say no to that?  I’ll tell you, you can’t.  Plus, after making such healthy cookies, I was really wanting something tasty and not necessarily healthy.  

This boy has always loved muffins, insert flashback.  I like that I can make them somewhat healthy sometimes and he has no idea, especially if I make mini muffins.  I think it is because they’re too cute to be healthy.  He absolutely loved making (and eating) these, thanks to some zucchini from a friend’s garden.

And who knows.  Maybe one of them will be on Junior MasterChef someday.  Yes, its really a show.  Yes, I love Gordon Ramsay.  Yes, I plan to watch it.
