Loen is all about cooking these days. She will cry when I’m in the kitchen, big crocodile tears rolling down her cheeks as she says “Mama I want to coooooooook with yoooooooou”. I have not managed to get the point across that she is still too young to use the stove. If there is mixing or ingredients to measure shes my gal but there is only so much of that to do.
Loen’s speciality dish is cinnamon pecan pancakes. This morning she added dried cranberries to hers. There is a lot to stir with that recipe.
When we were in Oakdale my mom made turnovers with the twins and cousin Iain while I took a nap. When I came to check on them later there was sugar in Loen’s hair and ears. They enjoyed it though. Derby on the other hand just likes to stand on the step stool. He is isn’t big on eating his creation unless it is chocolate.
