My son has showed an interest in cooking and helping in the kitchen. YES! Every time I walk in the kitchen and start cooking or even cleaning, he drags in his little chair, steps up on it, and says "I want to help, mama." I love it. So last week when we made pizza dough, I made some extra so that he could help and have his own dough to play with. He made us bread sticks! While waiting for the pizza to cook, we enjoyed them. I told my son, "Your bread sticks are so good! I love them." He responded with, "the trick was rolling the dough ssssloooowly." There you have it everyone, the secret cooking trick of a 3 year old! My husband and I giggled, it was so incredibly cute. Our son has been quite witty lately!
Enjoy some pictures of our dough making experience.
