Still Cooking

I know I haven't been posting a lot of recipes lately, but I haven't been doing a lot of cooking. I gave my 8 year a cookbook for his birthday. Since that little cookbook landed in his hands he hasn't quit cooking.

He has made all sorts of recipes: peanut butter cookies, spaghetti, pasta and homemade alfredo sauce, lemon squares, chicken and burgers.

He even created his own "Asian Shrimp" recipe which was so delicious I can't even begin to tell you! I was going to post his recipe here, but I can't because I have no idea what was in that little bowl of spices he created. All I know is that those shrimp came off the grill and disappeared with that bowl of Teriyaki Rice he made.

I am loving watching him cook and create. We have even signed him up for a class at the Viking Cooking School. He is over the moon with excitement.

My Little Guy isn't the only one spreading his cooking wings. My 12 year old Big Guy is also learning to grill. He enjoys cooking a little, but he really enjoys grilling. When Little Guy created his shrimp recipe he asked his big brother to finish up the process on the grill.

I have given them an assignment for our supper tomorrow night. I bought steaks. Little Guy is supposed to create the marinade and Big Guy will grill them. I can't wait to taste them!

I just wanted to let you know I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I am just enjoying this phase of teaching and watching my boys cook.

That's fantastic. Boys that can cook grow up to be men that can cook. And what could be any better than that!
