One of the things I want to do this summer vacation is really get the Big Kids involved in cooking and meal planning. Sort of "Mom's Home Ec Class" without the sewing. I want them to learn how to cook simple and healthy meals so that when they are grown and on their own, they can feed themselves!
Middle Sister is very excited about this idea. She already has made a list of 7 "dinner" and 7 "dessert" things she wants to learn to cook:
Chicken pot pie
Ice cream cake
Homemade onion dip (she classified this as a dessert. That's my girl!)
