"I Cook. I Cook"
Written on July 21, 2008 by Kevin.
Rylan has helped me in the kitchen a few times in the past and just recently my wife had him help her make a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich one afternoon. This has now peaked Rylan's interesting in cooking and now randomly he will say "I Cook. I Cook". When you ask him what he is going to make he may even say "Butter Butter Jelly".
Today, my wife says that he, after a bit of "I'm Hungry" (he says this even when he isn't hungry), grabbed her face and and said in a very serious way, "Mommy please, I cook I cook".
It looks like it is now time to start hunting down more recipes that he can help with. It is of course very beneficial for a boy to learn how to cook so that he doesn't have to rely on his mother and future girlfriends/wife to cook for him. I really don't want him eating ramen noodles everyday after he moves out.
Does anyone have any tasty recipes for a 2.5 year old? Friday night, Rylan and I, made cinnamon/sugar crescent rolls which were pretty tasty. He definitely liked helping with that one.
