Cooking together

Knowing that I would have Chrissy with me in our home Saturday and Sunday, I found five or so recipes that required vegetables, fruit, and chicken be chopped, sliced, rinsed, and such. While sitting at the kitchen table and listening to music, she peeled everything: zucchini, squash, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, granny smith apples, and even baby carrots!  Didn't even matter, I was so pleased that she was staying put and not wanting to leave.  Once prepared, our dishes had minimal visual appeal and that was just fine.  Though I will need to rethink future recipes with chicken, maybe just pick up a rotisserie bird and skip handling the raw meat.  Nonetheless, she was out of her house and content!

Thanks for stopping by Karen. Chrissy loves to help but no so limited. She likes to fold towels and count money!

That is a beautiful picture. Such a great idea having Chrissy peel and chop. My MIL Betty, would probably love that and I had not been encouraging her to help even when she offered. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful idea.
