Dance Party and Cookies 3.29.10

So I've told you before that Josh is getting into the cooking thing. The thing about him is that he has no preconceived notions about cooking (other than that he is SURE he's a better cook than I am. If you consider the cakes I've destroyed this month, he might have a point, but over all, I'm a pretty good cook! Little stinker). Because he's a bit of a blank slate, he just chooses to make whatever looks interesting to him. Me, I think about it. I know how long something will take. I know what kind of mess a recipe will make. I know the tastes of the other members of the family.

But I'm beginning to think this is a liability. Josh is bringing the fun back into cooking.

Today he decided to make Maple Cinnamon Pinwheels. These took forever. They made a huge mess. No one but me really liked them. But it was fun and we were all happy making them.

So happy, in fact, that a dance party broke out spontaneously. Hooray for kitchen dance parties.

Geeze, it looks so fun to be a Green kid! Also, since when is Josh a full blown grown up teenager?!

Yay for spontaneous dance parties and spontaneous choosing of recipes! I love it. :)
