Today I helped my mommy in the kitchen. Wanna see what we made?
Mommy wanted to do some baking because it was raining outside. She’ll use any excuse to make something sweet. She decided we would make apple crisp. That yellow thing up in the picture is a lemon off one of our trees. We squeezed some juice from it to use when we baked. Mommy said you’re supposed to use sour apples when you make an apple crisp, but she just used Royal Gala since that’s what we had.
Mommy let me use a funny looking thing to mix with, and then I used a great big spoon to stir stuff together in a bowl. I licked the spoon when I was done. Mommy wouldn’t let me stir with that spoon again because she said it had germs on it. I do not have germs! She put the baking dish in the oven because that’s too dangerous for me to do.
After hours and hours the timer finally beeped. I wanted to taste the apple crisp right away, but Mommy wouldn’t let me. She said it had to cool off first. Here’s what it looked like.
After a little bit Mommy put some in a bowl and put a scoop of ice cream on top. She said I could have it if I promised to eat all my lunch later since it was only ten o’clock in the morning. Mommy never lets me eat dessert before lunch!!! What’s going on???? Mommy must be sick or something.
Mommy ate some, too, but hers was in a great big bowl. I guess she gets a bunch ’cause she’s the mommy.
Here I am eating my yummy apple crisp and ice cream. Cooking is a lot of fun, but eating is even better. Just wait ’till my brother and sisters get home and see what I’ve been up to!
Thank you for joining me in the kitchen! Mommy said to tell you to have a good weekend. She’ll be back on Monday.
