Of all my kids, Matthew is by far the most interested in making things in the kitchen. I probably should encourage this more than I do! Left to himself he has been known to make things spontaneously; like the time he decided he needed to make a milkshake
Elizabeth is much less excited about helping but I was quite surprised when I decided I should get her to try her hand at meal planning (with the intention of getting her to shop for and cook some meals). I gave her a calendar an instructions to fill in the following week and next thing I knew she'd quizzed the whole family on what they wanted to eat and filled up the whole month.
Her spelling still cracks me up. (Wraps, for those of you wondering...)
