Once Upon A Time, My Kids Got Along

My kids did something shocking tonight, they helped in the kitchen without arguing! For 30 glorious minutes they worked together effortlessly to create magic in the kitchen. Too bad the cohesiveness didn’t carry over after dinner. It’s okay, this post will serve as evidence that they occasionally get along.

 

A couple of hours before we all joined in the kitchen my daughter volunteered, nay insisted on making the pasta noodles for our chicken and spinach Alfredo. She did it all. by. herself! She did a fantastic job too! If you want the pasta recipe I posted it in my blog titled “Gordon Ramsay is my hero.” Here is the link if you want to visit Kaylasfootprintsinflour.com

 

When making noodles it is important to know that if you don’t cook it right away, be sure to let it dry for 30 minutes to an hour before storing. This prevents the noodles from sticking together.

By the time my kids were ready to actively cook they had razor sharp focus. My daughter was in charge of the pasta while my son was learning how to make Alfredo sauce. It had turned into an episode of Master Chef Junior! I was surprised at how quickly my son caught on and amazed that my daughter required no help cutting and cooking the pasta.

When dinner was complete we all sat down to eat, I was floored by all of the flavor. I could not believe that my 12 year old son and 14 year daughter put this fantastic meal together! Now that they have showed me their talent, I believe that they should cook more often.
