The kiddos did another home ec lab. They struggled with this one.
First they had to rush around getting out all the ingredients.
Here are the ingredients for the salad.
The boy began making the candied almonds while the daughter began frying the meat.
Here is the meat and garlic. oopsie #1 Should have used a bit of oil in the pan. My mom got me this pan for Christmas 2 years ago. It is such a nice pan, but the Teflon is beginning to not do its thing anymore. We use it every morning for eggs, so I wonder if it is worn out. Not using oil in the pan doesn’t help much, either!
Yummy candied almonds for the Mandarin salad.
Mixing up the muffins. oopsie #2 To much applesauce.
Meanwhile at the other counter…
The boy is mixing up the dressing.
Readying the muffins for the microwave. oopsie # 3 Muffins are gross cooked in the microwave.
And last but not lease, oopsie #4 The daughter had the heat up to high after the sauce was added to the meat. To add insult to injury, the boy decided to take over the meat when it wasn’t going the way he thought it should. I should have never left the room.
Where was I??Most of the time in my director chair. Except for a brief few minutes at the end when I went to check my email.
The salad was delicious. It had mandarin oranges, candied almonds, romaine and a lovely vinaigrette dressing. The meat was ok….a bit caramelized, but ok. We had one bite of the muffins but they were gross.
Learn from us. Don’t cook bread stuff in the microwave… Please don’t leave the heat at medium after you add a glaze…and when you leave the room for a few minutes when your kiddos are snarking with each other…….DON’T!!! It could be disastrous!!!
How old were your kiddos when they started to cook?
