Sweet Fire Chicken Recipe

Hello Monday and HELLO to my kids
cooking dinner for the fam...


Here's a great little menu calendar for my kids to 
plan their meals on from SissyPrints...

and a darling monogram recipe card so my little ones 
can start to catalog their favorite meals...



Here's what's cookin'...


My youngest son chose his meal to prepare last week of

Lately, my little ones have been cooking (which includes deciding
on the meal, making the shopping list, helping pick out the
groceries, preparing the meal, and taking all of the
compliments when dinner is devoured).

I wasn't too sure that we'd find a recipe to match his fave
at Panda Express...but lo and behold, you have to
love the internet, there it was right on YouTube.

The great thing about a cooking video is that the ingredients
are listed as you go, and it's a great tutorial for kids to
follow along with in the kitchen. Of course, I had
to man the wok with the splattering oil...but
my guy did a fantastic job preparing this meal!


A little help from my sis, but I have this under control...


I made this mom!! 


I told my students about this little kitchen adventure in our family,
with the kids planning/cooking meals...and last week one of my students
came to me and said, "I told my mom about the cooking thing
and now we are doing that at our house." 
I think it's wonderful!

My mom had me start planning a cooking full, healthy meals for my family when I was about six years old. Honestly, it was one of the best things that ever happened to me. I am a good cook now and good at managing our groceries and meal planning all because my mom did exactly what you are doing. Nice work! Your kids {and their future spouses} will be grateful!

Oh so cute! What a great way to motivate kids to cook letting them join in from shopping to eating!!
