Everyday Cooking Ironies 1

Sunny side up They don’t even need me anymore.

Well, not every time anyway…

Recently, my son went into the kitchen and fixed eggs “Sunny Side Up” all on his own.

Where did he learn this you ask, if not from me?

From a science DVD: Moody Science Series “Facts of Faith”.

If you haven’t seen these, they really are a FANTASTIC resource, whether you home-school or not. They teach children about science in a fun and interactive way.

My children watch them over and over and over.

factsoffaith_dvd_lgYou really should consider investing in them for your own children.

They’re wonderful!

And apparently, they can also teach cooking… LOL!

Just to clarify, he didn’t do this without supervision. I’ve told him he has to have permission and supervision to cook anything so he told me what he wanted to do and I went to watch.

The irony here is that I’ve never been very good with Sunny Side Up eggs (or Fried Eggs as some call them) so I was not much help to him. I suppose I can take a little credit because I taught him the basics of cooking eggs but the credit for how good he is with these particular eggs lays entirely with Dr. Moody.

And I’m thrilled. I don’t have to worry about not doing them well, because HE DOES!

The rest of the video was really interesting too. LOL!

This isn’t actually a cooking funny so much as it is an irony about kids.

I don’t know about you but I love caramel apples. I’ll take them in slices slathered in caramel drizzle…

… or on a stick with nuts.

But can you guess what my sweet little girl said when I sliced a beautiful Fuji apple this afternoon & drizzled it with caramel?

“I don’t want any.” And she said it with a wrinkled nose too.

What I would like to know is why. I thought kids were supposed to love sweets!

Oh well. More for me I guess.

YUM!

Boy and I thought I was messy in the kitchen…

Actually my kitchen has never looked quite this bad.

But I have discovered that my 10-year old son is capable of making a stellar mess in the kitchen every single time he cooks.

Any other moms have difficulties with this? Or is it just me?

You read a few weeks ago about how I taught the kids to make eggs. Well, mostly I taught my son. My daughter was there and she watched but she really had no interest in doing much of anything with the information.

My son, on the other hand, has taken great pride in going into the kitchen and making eggs for himself, his sister, etc… In fact, for almost two weeks after he learned, we couldn’t go one meal without him wanting to fix eggs for someone.

SOOO CUTE! Right!

Now if I could only get him to figure out how to make the eggs without leaving egg residue all over the stove, the floor, the counter and the sink… I mean, I love that he wants to do it but it’s not really any less work for me since I have to clean up the mess every time.

It may even be a bit more work.

I shouldn’t complain. At last he wants to do it.

Guess I’ll just have to keep trying till I find something my daughter wants to do IMG_1222

(aside from putting the stone with the cookies on it into the oven of course).
