Cooking Show

Did I ever mention that Erin loves to do "cooking show"?  (Toddler speak for baking/cooking.)  I encourage this because it introduces her to new flavors.  She'll often taste each ingredient, and even though she'll rarely eat the final product I have to believe it does her taste buds good to get some stimulation other than "tofu" and "buttered noodle".  Today, we had to institute a new rule: taste things in the designated tasting bowl, leave the mixing bowl alone.  Erin took every advantage to experiment with the tasting bowl, including the cause/effect of blowing on the little pile of flour in her bowl. . . .


Just a side note: the buttermilk coffee cake was delicious.  Erin has eaten 2 bites.

No doubt those taste buds appreciate the extra effort to get Miss E to eat something other than tofu and buttered noodle, unless those things are wrapped in a great big piece o' bacon.

We have that chair and LOVE it! Unfortunately, it doesn't fit on any of our tables, but we used it at my parents' house all the time, and at countless restaurants - so much better than the (germy) little high chairs most of them have.
