Chef Kelsey

Kelsey got a super fun kid cookbook for Christmas from her Grandma Ellen. She has been DYING to cook now and Debbie made her a super cute apron, so now she is a chef.
Larry and Ellen came up for part of the weekend so Kelsey and Grandma made some Peanut Butter Balls from her new cookbook. (by the way, peanut butter balls are a great way to use your dry milk - it is one of our favorite recipes for a snack)



The ingredients list has pictures along with the cute descriptions written underneath the picture. It really is a cute book. Kelsey loves it. Now if only I would let her make pancakes by herself like she thinks she can! She has loved to help me cook since she could stir a bowl of batter, but now she thinks she can do it all by herself. AAHHHHH!!



The peanut butter balls Kelsey made have honey in them. Matt LOVES honey and so he made the biggest fuss over her 'cooking'. It made Kelsey swell up with pride, it was super cute. I like the peanut butter balls that use good ol' bad-for-you karo syrup instead of honey. Gimme all the bad stuff and I love it! Actually, just yesterday I was having a chocolate craving and with there nothing but cocoa and hot chocolate mix in the house that even resembles chocolate, I whipped myself up a little batch of peanut butter balls to take care of my craving. It almost worked.

Looks like fun. I am glad the apron fits. The activity girls made their aprons today. I couldn't get anymore of the fun kitchen towels with the flowers so they made plaid ones, I did figure out how to make them with pockets. I love peanut butter balls! We have had them a couple of times since Saturday. I might have to come over and see what is in your neat cookbook. Just think Rachel if you teach Kelsey to cook you can have a night off of cooking dinner....

Cute cookbook, cute apron, cute girl!

Love it!
But I have to say, I don't know if I have ever had PB balls. I bet they are divine.

I want to know why we didn't eat PB balls at 9:30 while we were sewing...that'd been AWESOME! I may have to steal some of your recipes, I'm sure Hannah would love to cook, too!
Thanks again for putting up with me today, and PS HAPPY BELATED BDAY!

PEanut Butter BAlls!! Holy Cow! In 8th grade I had to do a demonstration speech for speech and drama (Shannon Taylor) My absolute favorite thing! Yep Demonstrate that when your knees are knocking and your voice is shaking and your jaw is chattering like it is 30 below out side! Good Times
