Cooking with Kids

We've been watching a lot of the Food Network here lately. Aaron got us started by watching "Guy's Big Bite," and now we're Food Network junkies. We watch shows like "Ace of Cakes," "Throwdown with Bobby Flay," "Iron Chef America" (one of my faves), "30 Minute Meals" with Rachel Ray, and many different varieties of Food Network Challenges (also my faves), among others.

What's really funny about all this is that our kids are really into the Food Network, too. Chloe wrote herself a note to remind her what channel it's on. I can't tell you the number of times my kids have changed the channel away from SpongeBob to watch whatever's on the Food Network. Case in point: I slept in a little today and when I woke up, the kids were in the living room, not watching cartoons, but watching "Giada at Home." They then decided to play with their Moon Sand, and I'm pretty sure they're hosting their own cooking/baking show right now. I'm currently hearing phrases like, "Remember to flour the dough before rolling it out," and "Remember to flour the rolling pin, too." Also, "Bake it, oh, for about 20 to 30 minutes," and, my current favorite, "Let's head on over to Noah to make our drink."
