Sunday Snapshot - Yes Chef

We are slightly into food here in Drosche Land.  Amy has her blog (which due to the shoulder issue is not being updated as frequently lately) and we have been making a point to eat out at fancy (i.e. not kid-friendly) restaurants lately.  August was Houston Restaurant Weeks and, although only making it to 2 restaurants since we got a late start, we have become aware of the joy of fine dining experiences.  We are already making plans for next year!  Lastly, we are slightly addicted to all things Gordon Ramsay at the moment, Braeden especially.  He has suddenly caught our interest in food and has been referring to himself as the "head chef" lately.  He has been talking about food, wanting to cook, and wanting to make his own lunches.  Jackson, who will eat just about anything and is great at monkey-see/monkey-do, has taken to this as well.  This morning Braeden offered to help Amy make breakfast.  She's been doing alright with one arm, but it's not the same.  How could we not say yes!  Jack wasn't far behind (usually underfoot) and Amy had the ingenious idea of giving them the food-chopper thing to cut up the onions.  I was in the midst of laundry but stopped to grab the camera because I knew this would be a fun time.  In the end they thoroughly enjoyed cooking with Amy and I think this is going to be the start of something regular here.  Who knows?  Maybe one of them will grow up to be a chef?  Whatever the result, it made for a fun morning and a delicious breakfast!

All is well, picture perfect, in Drosche Land.

Spider-Jack in the kitchen!
 Our little Master Chef!  Yes, I know he is in his underwear but he's a 5-year old boy and it's literally 108 outside so a kid's gotta stay cool!

 Who doesn't love the chopping and pounding action this Pampered Chef tool provides?

 Jack was enthralled at the results of his handiwork!

 They took great pride in their culinary skills!
Small amount of onions but big fun!
