The Kids Cook Monday

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that our boys like to help in the kitchen. Sometimes, it’s a simple as putting together their snack or making their own peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Sometimes, it’s a little more involved like when the boys helped make semi swedish meatballs with me.

Boys Making Semi Swedish Meatballs

They took turns using the meat baller and putting the finished meatballs into the pan. This process was longer than if I had made them myself but they had so much fun and subsequently ate more of these than when I make them without their help.

Drama King loves to help out when I use our slow cooker because he can do most of the work on his own. He asked me to put together a video of him making steak stroganoff to share with you guys. This was his first time in front of the camera with the intent of sharing it with the world so he made a few minor oops. This was also my first time behind the camera as Tim is normally our camera man so it contains things I’d change, too.

Grab the recipe here for steak stroganoff and get your kids in the kitchen cooking. They will thank you when they’re older and can make something to impress their friends that doesn’t consist of picking up a phone or pushing a button on the microwave.

And have a safe and happy 4th of July! Don’t forget to watch Independence Day starring Will Smith. It’s my favorite 4th of July movie. What about yours?
